How to apply for an Apprehended Violence Order?

Apprehended Violence Order and how to apply for one – A person can contact the police, who can then make an application for an AVO on the person’s behalf, otherwise, a person can make an application on their own accord at the local court. However, an ADVO should be made as a matter of law for any applications made at the local court.

There is no requirement to seek the assistance of a lawyer if the police have made the application for an AVO, nor is there a requirement for a lawyer to be present if a person makes an application personally to the local court.

Although, it is a good idea to seek the help of a lawyer if an application is being made at the local court.
