Apprehend Domestic Violence or Personal Violence Orders (AVO’s)
In a very basic sense, an AVO can be applied for by the Police or by a person. Generally, this is when a person has threatened, assaulted, or stalked another person. There are two types of AVO orders; domestic and private. The domestic AVO refers to a domestic relationship, like a spouse or partner. A private AVO is for relationships outside of the personal realm, like a neighbour or co-worker.
It is our advice that if an AVO is served on you, then seeking out a solicitor who specialises in AVO’s is very important. Although it’s important to know that if you have an AVO order made against you, it is not a criminal charge. However, if you breach an order of the AVO it is likely you will be arrested by the Police and charged with a criminal offence. On the other side of the spectrum, if you apply for a domestic or personal AVO against a person, we can give you legal advice and represent you at Court. It is wise to engage a lawyer with a great deal of experience in this area of law as your safety and welfare is paramount.
If you have questions about how these orders work, you can learn more about how we handle AVO cases and the resources you may need going forward.
