Domestic Violence Lawyer Brisbane
The majority of people in Queensland and New South Wales do not realise that domestic violence is not merely threatening or physical violence in a relationship. If a domestic relationship exists then swearing or even name calling is sufficient enough for an act of domestic violence. In these cases and others, a Protection Order may need to be brought forward urgently with strict temporary conditions until the matter is settled.
Cullen Lawyers have helped numerous private applicants and respondents facing Protection Order Applications. We have the ability and experience to resolve these highly emotional matters quickly and effectively for you.
In New South Wales, the legislation enables the Local Courts to make Apprehended Violence Orders (AVO’s) for people in need. AVO’s can be divided into two categories with orders imposed in the below circumstances:
- Orders that involve allegations of violence where a domestic relationship with the respondent exists; and
- Personal Violence Orders (PVO’s) in matters of allegations of violence against a person for all other aggrieved persons subject to violence.
If you are an Applicant or Respondent to a matter involving an application for a Protection order or AVO, Cullen Lawyers can provide prompt legal advice and represent you from the start to completion of your case.
