Description

Domestic and family violence is a deeply troubling and high profile problem in Australia, with one woman per week, on average, losing her life as a result of it. In Queensland, where one quarter of such deaths nationally take place, Dame Quentin Bryce’s “Not Now, Not Ever” report was delivered in 2015, recommendations from which have come into force as part of the Government’s Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy. Legislative change is now accompanied by a growing body of case law.

Addressing this law is Domestic Violence and Child Protection Law in Queensland. It is comprised of concise commentary on the provisions of the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 and Child Protection Act 1999. This annotated legislation is combined with a contextual introduction to offer a single resource for legal practitioners working in criminal, family and children’s law practice, including Legal Aid, as well as for police prosecutors and magistrates.
