Domestic violence injunctions
What is domestic violence?
It is important to understand that the term ‘domestic violence’ does not just refer to physical violence. It has been defined to include “any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. This can encompass, but is not limited to, psychological, physical, sexual, financial, or emotional abuse.”
