Tabled in Parliament Date:



The Victorian Law Reform Commission will examine whether family violence laws should be reformed to:

1) specify a minimum default duration for final Family Violence Intervention Orders (FVIOs)

2) insert additional criteria for the variation or revocation of FVIOs.

The Commission will now prepare a consultation paper to guide community discussion about potential reform. The consultation paper will be published online and will tell you how you can have your say on these reforms.
