The Importance Of A Family Violence Intervention Order

Family Violence Intervention Orders are used as a means to protect individuals from family violence. These orders can be crucial in situations where there is a risk of harm. The order can restrict a respondent from committing violence, approaching or contacting the protected person, and even from attending certain locations where the protected person may be.

Obtaining an Intervention Order is not a simple process, and it requires expert legal guidance. The team at Nardi Lawyers can provide this assistance, helping you feel safer and more secure. We explain the different types of orders, eligibility for orders, and what to do if the conditions of an order are breached.

How To Apply For A Family Violence Intervention Order

The application process for a Family Violence Intervention Order begins at a local Magistrates’ Court where our lawyers assist you in filling out the necessary forms. There is no cost for applying. Once lodged, a court date is set and a temporary order may be issued for protection before the matter goes to court.

At the hearing, both parties will be asked to take an oath to tell the truth. The Magistrates’ Court will then ask the applying party to share details about the incidents of family violence. The court will also take into account any risks of future family violence. If an order is issued, it could be interim (temporary) or final (long term). Our lawyers at Nardi Lawyers provide guidance and support throughout the process.
