Fines Victoria

Primary content

The Family Violence Scheme is an option if your experience of family violence contributed to your fines.

The scheme allows you to apply to have your fines withdrawn if:

  • you are a victim of family violence, and
  • the family violence substantially contributed to you:
    • committing the offence, or
    • not being able to name the responsible person.

You can download an application form and learn more at fines.vic.gov.au/fvs

For further information, trained staff are available on 1300 019 983 Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm or by email FVS@justice.vic.gov.au
