Family Violence Intervention Order & Personal Safety Intervention Orders
Intervention orders are set in place to stop people behaving in particular ways that make another person feel unsafe. The orders are made by a Court and prohibit the defendant from a range of behaviour including harassment, stalking, intimidation, violence or the threat of violence.
The two types of Intervention Orders are:
Family Violence Intervention Orders
These orders cover those already familiar behaviours and can include controlling a person’s money, behaviour by a person that causes a child to hear or witness or is otherwise exposed to the effects of family violence, removing or keeping a family member's property without permission, or threatening to do so and/or behaviour that makes a family member fear for the safety of their property, another person and even an animal.
Personal Safety Intervention Orders
These orders involve alleged antisocial behaviours between non-family members. If you feel there is a risk to your safety, or the safety of your property McClure Law can help you facilitate meaningful discussions with the other party.
