Welfare experts are raising concerns about rising levels of financial abuse among couples in the wake of a national survey showing Australians are suffering from increasing levels of financial stress.
Welfare policy expert Lauren Levin said financial problems usually begin with men, and they often keep their debt a secret.
"They set up their affairs so that the partner doesn't see what's happening," Ms Levin said.
