In addition, the Migration Act (1958) allows that if the relationship breaks down due to domestic or family violence, the victim can apply for permanent residency.

All women’s refuges can help women from culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Contact your local refuge via the Domestic Violence Line on 1800 65 64 63.
