Attending court can be unfamiliar and stressful, especially for people affected by family violence. So how do we support them through their court journey?
On this tour of the Specialist Family Violence Court at Heidelberg you will walk in the footsteps of someone applying for a family violence intervention order. You will meet a family violence magistrate, court staff and community service providers who deliver the wrap-around supports as part of Victoria’s nation-leading family violence response.
At the end of the tour, you will have the chance to observe a courtroom in action.
Please note the following:
- Allow 20 mins to go through court security before the event.
- To ensure a smooth entry through security do not bring sharp items / glass bottles / tools / lighters / torches / lasers to court.
- Once inside the courtroom please observe court etiquette: do not take photos / have your mobile phone switched on / use electronic devices / eat, drink or chew gum / wear a hat or sunglasses.
