Intervention Orders

We can help arrange an Intervention Order

Dealing with Intervention Orders and Restraining Orders demands a high degree of understanding and also requires an appreciation for the broader impact such orders have in the Family Law jurisdiction and in particular in relation to parenting matters.

We will ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome and provide:

  • Advice and representation to obtain or defend an Intervention Order and restraining order including children on an interim or final basis.
  • Applications for variations of intervention orders.
  • Restraining orders to protect personal and real property.
Intervention Orders

What’s the difference between an IVO, AVO and Restraining Order?

Family violence orders are called different things in different states such as:

  • Protection Orders (QLD)
  • Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (NSW)
  • Intervention Orders (VIC & SA)
  • Violence Restraining Orders (WA)
  • Family Violence Order (TAS)
  • Domestic Violence Order (ACT & NT).
  • In Victoria, we have Family Intervention Orders (FVIO) or Personal Safety Intervention Orders (PSIO), which are collectively referred to as Intervention Orders (IVOs).

The names and terms vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction – in America, these types of orders are often called Restraining Orders.
