INTERVENTION ORDERS: BECAUSE EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND ADVOCACY ARE YOUR BEST DEFENCE.
Irrespective of whether you are an applicant or a respondent in a Family Violence Intervention Order, or a Personal Safety Intervention Order, Shane McClure has the court experience to assist you.
There are two types of intervention orders:
- A family violence intervention order helps to protect a family member from another family member;
- A personal safety intervention order helps to protect one person from another person, who is not a family member.
Intervention orders have rules (called conditions) about how the person (called the respondent) can behave towards you. The respondent must follow the conditions of the order. If they don’t, the police can intervene.
Intervention orders recognise that there are multiple forms of abuse (including threats), such as:
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional or Psychological Abuse
- Includes unlawful invading of personal space, racial commentaries, forcing unlawful action, preventing the victim from entering their place of residence.
- Unreasonable and Non-consensual Denial Of Financial, Social Or Personal Autonomy
- Includes depraving of minimum financial or social support, performing coercion, forcibly signing wills or contracts, preventing from seeking employment.
- Damage to Property
- Acts by a third party on encouragement by the respondent.
An intervention order can have conditions to stop the respondent from:
harassing, threatening, or intimidating you
- being near your house
- contacting you in any way
- damaging your property.
