ONE SUGAR STORY

While there is no single cause that leads to


domestic violence, there are a number of risk
factors associated with perpetrators and victims of
domestic violence.

For example, perpetrators alcohol and drug use,


and victims experience of child abuse, pregnancy
and separation may all increase the risk of
domestic violence. Financial stress, personal stress
and lack of social support are also strong
correlates of violence against women.

LEGAL PROTECTION

An Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) is an Order made by a


court against a person who makes you fear for your safety, to
protect you from further violence, intimidation or harassment. All
Apprehended Violence Orders made by the court prohibit the
person who is causing these fears from assaulting, harassing,
threatening, stalking, or intimidating you. Other conditions can
be included.

The person you fear, known as the defendant, must obey the
Order made by the court. You can contact the police to help
you apply for an Order, or you can contact your local court for
assistance. There are two types of Apprehended Violence
Orders:

WHAT IS AN APPREHENDED VIOLENCE


ORDER?

An Apprehended Domestic Violence Order is made where the


people involved are related, living together or in an intimate
relationship, or have previously been in this situation. In the case
of an Aboriginal person or Torres Strait Islander, Apprehended
Domestic Violence Orders can also be made where the people
involved are part of the kin or extended family of the other
person. Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders are also
available to people who are or have been in a dependent care
arrangement with another person, including paid carers, and to
people living in the same residential facility.

APPREHENDED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE


ORDER (ADVO)

An Apprehended Personal Violence Order is made where the


people involved are not related and do not have a domestic
relationship, for example, they are neighbours or work together.

APPREHENDED PERSONAL VIOLENCE


ORDER (APVO)

If an Order is made, three conditions will always be included. These conditions prohibit the
following behaviour:

Assaulting, molesting, harassing, threatening or interfering with the Protected Person;

Intimidating the Protected Person; and

Stalking the Protected Person. Anyone in a domestic relationship with the Protected Person is
also protected by these conditions. This may include your children.

Extra conditions may be included in the Order prohibiting the defendant from:

Approaching the Protected Person;

Approaching or entering places where the Protected Person may live, work or go to;

Approaching the Protected Person, or places where the Protected Person may be, after
drinking alcohol or taking illegal drugs;

Damaging property; and/or

Any other conditions as agreed by both parties or decided by the court.

WHAT TYPES OF CONDITIONS CAN BE PUT


IN AN APPREHENDED VIOLENCE ORDER?

When an Apprehended Violence Order is made, the defendant does not get a
criminal conviction or a criminal record. The details of the Apprehended Violence
Order are kept on a police database and the police will seize any firearms in the
defendants possession or control.

If the defendant has a firearms licence, the licence is automatically revoked


(cancelled) for a period of 10 years. If the Order is revoked, the defendant can
get their firearms licence back only if they are considered to be a fit and proper
person to have a firearms licence.

Consequences on friends and family can not be measured, as it is unknown the


reactions one might get.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF AN


APPREHENDED VIOLENCE ORDER BEING MADE?

An Apprehended Violence Order is a court order.


If the defendant breaches a condition of the Order, they may be
charged with a criminal offence.
The person should keep a copy of the Apprehended Violence
Order on them at all times and call the police if the defendant
breaches any of the conditions listed on it.
