Australian Institute of Family Studies violence report released

A couple of days ago I posted about the synopsis of the Australian Institute of Family Studies report into allegations of domestic violence in children’s cases in the Family Court and the Federal Magistrates Court in 2003. the research suggests that even when allegations of domestic violence are made, they make little difference to when dads see their kids.

The report has now been released.

But wait there’s more!

Adele Horin in the Sydney Morning Herald has highlighted the findings in the report between situational violence, which may be initiated by women and arise in a specific situation only, and the much more serious controlling violence, sometimes called intimate terrorism.

In a separate opinion piece, Adele Horin comments that before the changes to the Family Law Act last year, good dads were probably getting too little time with their children, but bad dads were getting too much, placing the children possibly at risk.
