Domestic violence is in a state of social emergency across Australia. As the pandemic rages and some parts of the country are still in lockdown, many will be isolating with their abusers. Family law expert Anne-Marie Cade explains the warning signs you should look out for. Domestic abuse is not always obvious and may come in many different forms. According to the statistics, women are at greater risk of family, domestic and sexual violence. One in six Australian women and one in 16 men have been subjected, since the age of 15, to physical and/or sexual violence by a current or previous cohabiting partner. One woman is killed every nine days and one man is killed every 29 days by a partner. The statistics are alarming and the abuse has a lifelong impact on the victims.
