The lack of information is a frustrating and often damaging problem, often expressed by families following a homicide.
The more informed you are, the more prepared you will be for this very traumatic time.
How can AdVIC help?
We have collated practical information about the criminal Justice system which can be found under the information page of this website where you will find detailed information on agencies you may need to contact following the death of your loved one:
- Coroner’s court
- Criminal Injuries compensation tribunal
- Dept of Social Affairs,
- Dept of Justice
- Dept of Foreign Affair
- Parole Board, Prison service
- Support groups
AdVIC also produced two information booklets:
- “Homicide, a guide for families bereaved by homicide” [pdf]
- “A practical guide to the Victim Impact Statement” [pdf]
