Intervention Orders- Civil and Criminal Proceedings
There are two different types of interventions available, Family Violence Intervention Orders and Personal Safety/Stalking Intervention orders. A Family Violence Intervention Order can be obtained when a matter is relating to a family member, partner or relative and a Personal Safety Order can be obtained when your matter does not concern a relative, like a neighbour for example. We can help you no matter whether you are the Applicant or the Respondent.
Once an intervention order has been served upon you whether it is an interim order or final intervention order you must abide by the clauses contained within the order. Please note that should you breach the order you will face criminal charges. Breaching an Intervention order is considered a serious criminal offence and can carry with it a term of imprisonment.
If you have been charged with breaching an intervention order please contact our office for advice so that we can assist you through the court process.
