Dealing with Family Violence

Domestic violence can be distressing for the family. 

If you are going through a divorce and you have experienced domestic violence in your marriage, it would be best to approach the divorce process by placing the safety of the children and yourself first. 

If you or your children are the victims of domestic violence, you may 

  1. Call the National Anti-Violence Helpline at 1800-777-0000.
  2. If there is imminent danger to life and safety, call the police at 999, or go to your nearest Neighbourhood Police Post or Centre for help.
  3. Seek medical treatment or examination if you are injured.
  4. Seek advice from a Family Violence Specialist Centre (FVSC). The FVSC may also assist you in applying for a Personal Protection Order.
