There are two types of Apprehended Violence Orders:
AVO’s are a preventative measure from having someone stalk, intimidate, assault, threaten, harass, molest or interfere with your day to day life, including a person the protected person is in a relationship with.
At Austere Legal, we are able to have standard orders as well as additional or custom orders made to protect you. This includes preventing the defendant from attending your home address, work location, or having someone contact you completely.
If you are a defendant in an AVO, call us on (02) 8897 3534 to discuss how we can defend your matter, and whether there are any benefits in consenting to the AVO. Similarly, if you have breached an AVO, this is a criminal offence which is punishable by 2 years imprisonment or a fine of $5,500.
