Maleys has lawyers who are experienced in:
- applying for a domestic violence order (DVO) or personal violence restraining order (PVRO)
- defending a DVO or PVRO
Domestic violence legislation in the NT covers family members and ex partners and “Personal violence” relates to other persons.
A domestic violence order is sought for protection. If a DVO is made a copy of the DVO must be given to the family law court if there are current parenting proceedings.
Options for defending a DVO or PVRO include:
- consenting “without admission”
- opposing the application
- giving an undertaking
If you wish to apply for a DVO, have been served with an application and want to defend it, or have breached a current order Maleys may be able to help you.
