We advise clients in circumstances of family violence and with respect to allegations of family violence. We ensure our clients understand the overlap between family violence and other family law issues, such as parenting arrangements and property settlements.
We ensure our clients who have been served with an Intervention Order understand the detailed terms and the practical implications of the Order on their day to day life, so that they can avoid breaching the Intervention Order.
Our family lawyers assist clients to make application for Intervention Orders personally at the Magistrates’ Court or via the Police. We represent clients in Intervention Order proceedings in the Magistrates’ Court at Mention Hearings, Directions Hearings and Contested Hearings.
