Family Violence Lawyers Melbourne
Experience in handling all family law matters on behalf of a victim or person accused of family violence.
Our family violence lawyers can assist in all matters relating to Intervention Orders (IVOs). You may be thinking of applying for an IVO and need advice on the impact it may have on you, your family and your case. Or you may need assistance defending an IVO against you.
Over time, community attitudes have led to toughened sentencing standards when it comes to family violence matters. Courts will now give these cases priority allowing them to move much faster through the system.
Family Violence (domestic violence) is a serious matter. Intervention Orders are an order made by the Court that restricts a person’s interaction with another individual or group of people. They are designed to provide protection to the victim(s) of domestic and family violence. If the terms of the intervention order are broken, the respondent can be charged with a criminal offence.
We understand that it is very stressful if you are applying for an intervention order or defending one.
