Defending/Applying of an Apprehended Violence Order or Domestic Violence Order
Apprehended Violence Orders are made by the court against a person who makes someone else fear intimidation, harassment or for their safety.
Apprehensive Violence Orders (AVOs) and Domestic Violence Orders (DVOs) are made by the court against a person who makes someone else fear intimidation, harassment or for their safety.
On top of the standard orders against assault, harassment, threats, intimidation and stalking, each AVO/DVO will also carry its own terms and conditions which can include preventing a person from contacting the applicant and attending their residence or work and in some cases, some public areas.
Our Criminal Lawyers can appear for both applicants (the person taking out the AVO/DVO where police have not issued it on behalf of the applicant) and defendants (the person the AVO/DVO is taken out against) in AVO/DVO proceedings. Our Criminal Lawyers can also guide you through the legal process if you are charged with breaching an AVO/DVO taken out against you.
Our Criminal Lawyers also represent clients in relation to Peace and Good Behaviour Applications.
