Apprehended Domestic Violence Order

Are you experiencing family violence or domestic abuse at home? Or, have you been charged with domestic violence offences and don’t know where to turn? You don’t have to face it alone. 
Domestic abuse within a family or relationship is not just physical; it refers to all violent actions, assaults or threats including:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Psychological/emotional abuse
  • Economic abuse
  • Stalking
  • Intimidation or harassment
  • Social abuse including coercive control, intimidation, isolation and ostracism
  • Spiritual abuse including controlling and enforcing a belief on someone

People who experience a form of family violence from a partner or family member can apply to the court to get an ADVO (apprehended domestic violence order). If the court deems it necessary to impose an ADVO against you or another family member, it can have life-changing consequences, so it’s important to get the best legal representation.
