An Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) is a legal mechanism designed to protect individuals from threats or acts of violence by someone with whom they share a relationship, such as a partner, family member, or acquaintance. It provides a layer of legal protection by imposing restrictions on the behaviour of the individual posing a threat.

An AVO can include several key provisions:

No Contact Orders: Prevents the person from contacting you directly or indirectly, whether through phone calls, texts, social media, or third parties.

Exclusion Zones: Prohibits the individual from coming within a certain radius of your home, workplace, children’s school, or any other specified location. This ensures your physical safety and that of your loved ones in places you frequently visit.

Behavioural Restrictions: Restrains the individual from stalking, harassing, or intimidating you in any form.
