Whether you’ve suffered physical acts of violence or emotional, sexual or financial abuse, let’s get protection for you and your family.

WHAT IS A FAMILY VIOLENCE INTERVENTION ORDER?

A family violence intervention order (also called a personal safety intervention order or AVO – apprehended violence order) is a court order to protect a person, their children and their property from a partner, ex-partner or family member.

Depending on the circumstances, the conditions of the order might prohibit the respondent (the person the order is against) from going near you or contacting you. Breaking these conditions is a crime.
