Victims of Domestic Abuse

Being a victim of domestic abuse refers to threats, violence or abuse between people who have a relationship with each other (or have had in the past).

Whether the criminal law can protect victims is dependent on the particular type of violence and circumstances of the violence, as well as on the responses of criminal justice agencies such as the police, probation and courts.
