What is an Intervention Order?

There are two types of Intervention Orders: 

  • ‘Family Violence Intervention Orders’ which protect a person from a violent or abusive family member or ex-partner; and 
  • ‘Personal Safety Intervention Orders’ which protect a person from a non-family member, such as an acquaintance or stranger.

What should I do?

Sometimes, both parties agree on the terms of an Intervention Order, and so an Intervention Order can be simply made by the Magistrate without the need to call evidence from either party. 

Other times, the Intervention Order is not agreed to, which means that the Application for an IVO runs as a Contested Hearing. This means that the Applicant must give evidence about why they want the Intervention Order.

Wilkinson Lawyers represents both Applicants and Respondents in Intervention Order Applications.
