We act for clients in matters relating to both Family Violence and Personal Safety Intervention Orders for both the Applicants and Respondents, including Interim and Final Orders. Family violence can have a long-lasting and detrimental impact upon the entire family, especially children.
Where family violence has been perpetrated against you, or any member of your family, you can make an application for an Intervention Order. The purpose of an Intervention Order is to protect you and your children, and to prevent violence being perpetrated against you in the future. Our lawyers can help you to determine whether there are grounds for an Intervention Order Application and guide you through the process.
If an Intervention Order Application has been made against you, and you believe that the allegations are untrue, our lawyers can assess the merits of your case and help you explore your options. Breaching an Intervention Order is a criminal offence and has serious implications. If you have been charged with breach of an Intervention Order, our lawyers can advise you of your rights and represent you in any proceedings.
