PE2025: Improve the support available to victims of domestic violence, who have been forced to flee their home

- ensuring access to legal aid for divorce proceedings where domestic violence is a contributing factor;
- ensuring victims are financially compensated for loss of the marital home, including loss of personal possessions and furniture left in the property; and
- ensuring that victims are consulted before any changes are made to non-harassment orders.
