The Victorian Government has introduced new legislation to better protect victim survivors and enhance the justice system’s response to family violence.

The introduction of the Family Violence Protection Amendment Bill 2017 was a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.

The Bill will increase protections for women and children through quicker processing of family violence intervention orders, new measures to intervention order appeal processes and in some cases, the ability to use pre-recorded evidence to support family violence offences.
