Jacob and Samantha have been in a relationship for four years. They have a little boy and could be like any other couple you know – they could be your neighbours, friends or family.
But things aren’t as they seem.
Jacob and Samantha are in an unhealthy relationship and behind closed doors there is physical and emotional abuse taking place.
The 2012 Law Week Hypothetical examines what domestic violence is and helps distinguish the myths from the facts.
Facilitator Kay McGrath leads an expert panel through a fictional domestic violence scenario exploring the support services available to victims and perpetrators of violence.
The hypothetical also examines the legal process for getting a domestic violence protection order and compares healthy versus unhealthy relationships.
