The trial specialist domestic and family violence court in Southport

The specialist domestic and family violence (DFV) court was established on 1 September 2015, initially as a six month trial in response to the recommendations contained in the Taskforce Report. The trial was then extended to 30 June 2017.

The specialist court trial was located in Southport, a demographically diverse community where 35 per cent of residents have overseas born parents, the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents is proportionally lower than in the rest of Queensland, and the rate of unemployment is proportionally higher than the State average.
