Family Violence Bench Book updated

The Family Violence Bench Book has been updated to reflect the third tranche of amendments from the Justice Legislation Amendment (Family Violence Protection and Other Matters) Act 2018.

The amendments commence today, and include allowing courts to make interim intervention orders in criminal proceedings or during a bail application or appeal, and changes to postcode eligibility for counselling orders.
