Protecting victims of domestic violence
The Department of Justice in Northern Ireland is consulting on protecting victims of domestic abuse from being cross-examined by the perpetrator in person in family courts. The consultation acknowledges that while it is rare for children to give evidence as a witness of fact in family proceedings, they are likely to benefit as a result of adult witnesses being supported to give evidence.
