Description

This publication brings together the important threads of legislation designed to prevent child neglect and abuse, family violence, other forms of personal violence. The work also deals with the procedural and sentencing aspects of the criminal law as it applies to children and young people. It is intended to be a “one stop” guide to the law for those working in the areas of child protection and family violence.  

The work provides a guide to the important risk assessment processes essential to the effective investigation of, and responses to, family violence and child neglect and abuse.

Given the significant interaction between the work of Victorian Magistrates’ and Children’s Court and orders made under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), a guide to the interaction between orders made under the Family Violence Protection Act 2008 and orders made under the Commonwealth Act is included.

The work also provides an annotated commentary on the:

  • Children Youth and Families Act 2005;
  • Family Violence Protection Act 2008;
  • Personal Safety Intervention Orders Act 2010

Each of the authors brings many years of experience as practitioners in the fields of family violence and child protection and as authors of legal texts or academic work on these topics.
