Evidencing domestic violence in the family courts

Survivors may be asked to evidence their experiences of domestic violence in nearly all types of family law cases including those relating to children and domestic violence injunctions.  This course aims to help professionals provide guidance to survivors without a lawyer on how to identify, obtain and present evidence to the family court.  We will explore:

  • The rules on when to provide evidence and how
  • Types of evidence and potential sources of evidence
  • Preparing statements and supporting documents
  • Whether covert recordings can be used as evidence

Who should attend? It is open to all professionals working in London boroughs on violence against women and girls issues from the community, voluntary and statutory sectors including refuge workers, IDVAs, ISVAs, social workers, housing officers, police officers, education professionals and health professionals. It is also open to Commissioners and Local Authority Officers responsible for commissioning violence against women services
