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).

Queensland Courts have published a series of videos explaining the court process for making domestic violence orders. If you are applying or responding to a domestic violence order, there is information on their website for you. Domestic Violence Orders are part of a strategy to protect the safety of all members of our community and to stop the violence.
