Apprehended Violence Orders
Breaching the conditions of an AVO means you do something that the AVO says you cannot do. This is a serious offence and you risk being fined up to $5000, convicted and even jailed for a number of years depending on how serious your breach is. All AVO’s vary in nature and breaches can involve doing things such as
– Calling or texting the protected person
– Calling or texting a family member or friend of the protected person
– Going within 100 meters or less of the protected person or their family or friends
– Harassing or intimidating (either physically or mentally) a protected person
We often see Apprehended Violence Orders that are obtained by false complaints, are not necessary or have been granted for unfair reasons such as preventing one parent from seeing the children or payback for something very personal. We have also represented many clients who accidentally breached their AVO such as getting on a bus when the victim was already on it or accidentally dialing the wrong number in their phone.
It is possible to defend an AVO and you need and experienced Criminal Lawyer as this is a very technical area of law with no room for error
If you are a party to an AVO and would like to take one out against somebody or have been charged with breaching one, it is important to contact us immediately to discuss your options.
