Apprehended Violence Orders

Do you need help seeking an apprehended violence order?

It is an unfortunate reality that AVO court orders (apprehended violence orders) are a necessary part of Australia’s legal system.

But when 2.2 million Australians have experienced physical or sexual violence from a current or previous partner, AVOs play a vital role in protecting people from further harm.

Domestic violence and family violence is a crime defined in the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007. If an individual is charged, criminal convictions are available in addition to AVOs. 

Cardillo Gray Partners are skilled apprehended violence order lawyers based in Newcastle. Our expert team is here to help if you or someone you know is the victim or a potential victim of domestic violence.

Our compassionate lawyers are here to help action the necessary legal steps to gain the protection you need from further violence, harassment, and intimidation using an AVO.
