Combating of Domestic Violence Amendment BillLAC
The Combating of Domestic Violence Amendment Bill was introduced in Parliament on 23 February 2022.
You can find a copy of the bill here, and a PowerPoint presentation explaining the amendments to the left.
We generally welcome the Bill, but were very concerned to see that it fails to address the exclusion of same-sex couples from the coverage of the law. You can find more information here as well as a factsheet on that issue.
For more information on the laws please see our annotated statutes.
