The Government published its draft Domestic Abuse Bill on 21st January 2019. The Bill will prohibit a domestic abuser from cross-examining their former victim in Family Courts. The proposed legal changes will also seek to ensure that abusers are forced to engage in rehabilitation schemes, that there is adequate safeguarding in place for victims in criminal trials, and to set up a national “domestic abuse commissioner” to improve the support for victims accessing public services.
