Changes to the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act from 30 May will mean greater protection for victims and their children.
The changes strengthen police and justice responses, and allow for improved information sharing between government and non-government organisations.
The Queensland Government's Not Now, Not Ever report made a range of recommendations to review and amend legislation to better protect victims and hold perpetrators to account.
Amendments have been made to Queensland laws to create a robust, cohesive legislative framework that puts the safety and security of victims first, sends a clear message to perpetrators that domestic violence is not tolerated, and supports the broader systemic reforms underway.
