It might include behaviour by a partner, carer or family member that causes physical or personal injury, damage to property, or that is otherwise threatening or harassing.

It can include behaviour which is psychologically, financially or sexually abusive. If you are seeking help or support with these issues, we can assist you with advice, legal representation or referral to the many services available in the ACT.
