Description


The Domestic Violence Crime, and Victims Act 2004 is the biggest overhaul of domestic violence legislation in thirty years, introducing new powers for the police and courts to tackle offenders whilst ensuring that victims get the support and protection they need. The Act received Royal Assent at the end of 2004. It will have a very significant impact on existing legislation and practice--notably the Family Law Act 1996 and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. This Guide provides a full, clear analysis of the Act and a detailed explanation of its many provisions with practical pointers on resulting changes to practice and procedure. It contains the full text of the Act, plus the text of key related legislation as amended by the Act. It is an essential tool for all criminal and family law practitioners faced with domestic violence cases.
