Domestic Violence- Gold Coast - Providing continuing support and representation

Domestic Violence includes:

  • Damage to property or threats to destroy property
  • Physical abuse including punching, pushing, slapping, choking or twisting limbs
  • Stalking including repeated non-consenting contact via phone, email or social network
  • Coercive and threatening behaviour designed to control or intimidate
  • Preventing contact with family and friends, or cultural and spiritual connections
  • Emotional abuse including threatening to kill you or someone you care about
  • Threatening suicide or self-harm

Generally speaking, if your partner engages in activities specifically designed to intimidate, harass or cause harm to you or people you love, his or her behaviour constitutes domestic violence.

How to Apply for a Domestic Violence Order

Urgent temporary protection orders are available for individuals who are at immediate risk.

Before applying for a non-urgent domestic violence order make sure you have obtained legal advice and lodge your application. Your respondent will be served.
