The Austrian federal government takes all necessary steps to prevent the Corona virus from spreading further. These steps include staying at home and not getting in contact with other people as far as possible. To act accordingly is very important for all of us to stay healthy.

But that does not mean that you are not getting the help and support you need when you, your children or other relatives suffer from domestic violence. You are still entitled to receive protection, help and support.

We would like to reduce personal counseling where possible but are available by telephone.

We can make necessary calls for you and can assist you in applying for a temporary injunction without meeting personally. To be able to do that, we need your authorizatio

We can check whether appointments at court as well as other appointments take place and can make sure that your rights are respected.

To prevent the Corona virus from spreading further we all are obliged to stay at home as much as possible. In some cases this can increase the danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence, especially when there has been violence before.

It is crucial to be aware of the following:

Each woman, each girl and each child, each person has the right to live free from violence and has the right to protection and assistance during court proceedings. We are there for you to ensure your rights are respected.
