Understanding the Conditions in a Domestic Violence Order

Domestic violence orders have conditions that are intended to protect the person seeking protection (known as the “aggrieved”). The person the order has been made against is known as the “respondent.”

If you are the respondent, it is crucial that you obey all of the conditions stipulated in the domestic violence order. Any failure to comply with the conditions constitute a criminal offence.

A domestic violence order will have a standard condition included in it, namely “to be of good behaviour and not commit domestic violence against the aggrieved or any other person named on the order.” However, the court can add other conditions to the order.

There is more information regarding the conditions included in domestic violence orders in this video from Queensland Courts (see below). Please watch it and share it with anyone you think could benefit from this important information. (This is the final video in our series of six. Check our other posts for more insight into these processes).

What do you do if you are served with a Domestic Violence Order?

A Domestic Violence Order is issued by courts with the aim of providing protection to people in domestic violence situations. It is a legal document that is issued on behalf of a person claiming to be suffering abuse.

But what do you do if you are served with a Domestic Violence Order?

It is very important that you read the paperwork carefully, so you understand the allegations that have been made against you. You should also note the date and time mentioned in the document for your court appearance.

You must attend the court appearance or you run the risk that the magistrate will make an order in your absence. The magistrate could also issue a warrant for you to be taken into custody by the police.

The next steps are all outlined in this informative video from Queensland Courts (see below). Please watch it and share it with anyone you think could benefit from this important information. (This is the fifth video in our series of six. Check back for our next post which will give you even more insight into these processes).

How do you apply for a protection order?

A Domestic Violence Order is made by the court in order to stop threats or acts of domestic and family violence.

You can apply for one yourself. But did you know that the police, your friends or family members can also apply for an order on your behalf?

Police can also help by applying for a Temporary Protection Order to provide you interim protection until a longer order can be made by the court.

Watch this video from Queensland Courts that addresses all of this and more, and then please share it with anyone you think could benefit from this important information. (This is the third video in our series of six. Check back for our next post which will cover what happens in court).
