Experiencing family violence on a temporary partner visa

According to a 2021 report by the Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing, women on temporary visas experiencing family and domestic violence have been recognised as a particularly marginalised and at-risk cohort. 

On this episode of Women on the Line we speak with Peggy Kerdo, an experienced human rights lawyer practising mainly in immigration and refugee law, about working with clients on temporary partner visas, the barriers they face when trying to get help, what supports are available and how the government can do better to protect these women.
