Intervention Orders & Family Violence Orders (IVO)

Intervention Orders & Family Violence Orders (IVO)

An  IVO is a court order which protects people from physical or  psychological abuse, threats of violence, property damage, or  intimidation. An IVO can be put in place for individuals or groups and  usually applies to both parties involved in the dispute. It can also  cover other people living in the same household who may be at risk of  being hurt by either party. The orders are designed to prevent further  contact between the two parties involved in the dispute and protect  those that need it.

Types of Intervention Orders We Can Handle

At Bentleys Barristers & Solicitors we can assist with the following types of Intervention Orders:

Personal Safety Intervention Orders (PSIO)

These  are court-ordered protections that prevent physical or psychological  abuse, threats of violence, property damage, and intimidation from  taking place.

Family Violence Intervention Orders (FVIO)

These  are court-ordered protections which make it illegal for a person to  contact, harass, threaten or intimidate another person in the family.

Intervention Orders for Children and Young Persons (CYPO)

Intervention  Orders for Children and Young Persons (CYPO) are court orders that are  developed with the safety of a child or young person in mind. They are  designed to protect the child or young person from experiencing further  abuse, family violence, or other harm.

Interim Intervention Orders

Interim  Intervention Orders are court orders that are put in place to provide  immediate protection until such time as a final intervention order is  made.

Contravention Applications

If  an Intervention Order is breached, a contravention application can be  made to the court. This involves the alleged offending party being  charged with breaching the Intervention Order and a hearing to determine  whether the breach did take place.
