About the project
The Magistrates’ Court of Victoria received funding to create a new website for unrepresented clients in intervention order proceedings. The website, for both applicants and respondents, includes information about court processes, legal assistance and support.
Outcome of the project
The Family Violence website was launched on White Ribbon Day, 25 November 2015.
The Family Violence website was developed to improve access to information about family violence and intervention orders for both applicants and respondents. It provides clear, concise and simplified information on the intervention order process as well as providing information and links to services available for those affected by family violence.
The website includes a number of videos that explain the different aspects of the intervention order court process.
The website was developed in consultation with stakeholders from the family violence sector. Stakeholders provided valuable input and advice on the written content, participated in the videos and ensured that access to and information about their services is available from the website.
The Magistrates’ Court are planning on translating the information into multiple languages.
