Intervention Orders

Applicants
If you have been affected by family violence or are concerned for your safety we can help to make applications to the Magistrates’ Court for Family Violence and Personal Safety Intervention Orders. If these applications are disputed then we will assist you to negotiate and explain the court process as well as to settle these disputes in a way which is in line with your wishes.

Respondents
If you have been served with a Family Violence Safety Notice or an Application and need advice on how to respond we are able to help. We will assist to negotiate the terms of these orders and to resolve them in a way that will not limit your daily life in a way which is cost effective to you. We can also appear on your behalf in the Magistrates’ Court to contest an intervention order.
Interventions orders can be a stressful and confusing process. We will help to make this as comfortable and comprehensive as possible.
