What is this webinar about?
Dealing with the family home after financial abuse can be challenging, as ongoing contact with the perpetrator can subject victim survivors to further abuse. Rising interest rates and the resulting mortgage stress are set to make this difficult process even harder.
This webinar will provide practical steps for helping clients with unaffordable mortgages, strata levies and council rates. We will cover how these debts can be used as tools of financial abuse, different options available in family law and credit law, dispute resolution with lenders and creditors, and steps to take if the home is no longer affordable.
The webinar will be valuable to workers in services that assist victim survivors of family violence, such as financial counselling, domestic violence services, women’s refuges and community legal centres. This information will be applicable Australia-wide.
