Encountering Family Violence in Migration | Law Institute Victoria

August 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

What happens if one partner is in Australia on a spousal visa and the relationship breaks down for family violence? What about visas without family violence provisions? And what obligations arise for lawyers?

In these scenarios, migration lawyers need to be able to identify issues that arise for their clients and confidently navigate them through the complexities of their situation.

In this practical session, expert presenters take you through several hypothetical scenarios where family violence intersects with migration law and a lawyer’s ethical or professional obligations. The session also explores family violence in the context of the protection visa framework, risk management principles you should be aware of and key referral pathways for ongoing assistance to clients.
