I Have Children
Having children raises new issues and questions about domestic and family violence.
As a parent you might be trying to work out what’s best for the wellbeing of your child/children. It is often the case that men abuse their partners but not their children. However, even if children are not the targets, growing up in a violent home can have lasting negative impacts.
Further information on the impact of domestic and family violence on children and your options is available through the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (Community Services) website.
Whether you are thinking about leaving your partner, have left your partner or plan to stay, there are services available for you and your children.
Caseworkers at the Domestic Violence Line (1800 65 64 63) are able to assist and refer you to the services you need.
