What Does Domestic Violence Look Like?
Recent research indicates families sweep violence under the carpet
According to the Australian Domestic and Family Violence statistics report, one in twenty youths between the age of 12-20, consider throwing things such as plates, regular slapping or punching to be part of ‘normal conflict’ rather than domestic violence.
This is a staggering statistic, and at DA Family Lawyers we empathise with domestic violence cases and feel it is extremely important to receive help as soon as possible. Another statistic says that 42% of Australian women in an abusive relationship prefer to deal with the issue themselves!

- Intimidation or harassment
- Being treated indecently without your consent
