The Justice Minister's looking to get a multi-party agreement as she plans sweeping reforms of domestic violence laws.

Consultation on changes to the current regime closes in a matter of weeks with the Minister intending to have legislation before Parliament next year.

Amy Adams says she'd like to try to get a multi-party accord on the issue as she thinks it's something that can be pitched above politics.

She said it's the approach she's taken so far and there has been a good consensus working around it.

Adams said if it turns into politicians trying to score points, we risk not doing right by domestic violence victims.
