For many survivors, being in a court building with the abuser can be one of the most difficult parts of the Family Court process.

Rights of Women has created a short film on #SafetyInTheFamilyCourt for survivors of domestic violence to explain the ways the courts can help make the process safer and make it easier to take part in court hearings without feeling intimidated.

We are proud to be launching this film on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25th November 2016) – it is one of many activities and events occurring around the world to mark this important date.

You can find further information on family law issues here or by contacting our advice lines.
