AVO Lawyers

Apprehended Violence Orders are a sad but necessary part of family law. Our AVO lawyers can advise on legal issues to do with abuse, including obtaining an AVO or advising those who have had unfounded claims made against them.

At Movement Legal, we understand our client’s challenges when dealing with AVOs. Our team of experienced family lawyers can provide you with compassionate, knowledgeable and expert legal representation throughout your legal matter. 

We have in-depth knowledge of the state and territory laws governing AVOs in Australia, which can be intricate and vary between jurisdictions. Our team of skilled family lawyers can help you navigate these laws in a way that puts your safety first.

Understanding AVOs and your rights

An Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) is a legal order designed to protect a person from violence, harassment, intimidation, or stalking. AVOs can be issued in different circumstances, such as domestic or family violence or disputes with neighbours, acquaintances, or other individuals. 

Our AVO lawyers have extensive experience assisting applicants and respondents in AVO matters. Our goal is to ensure that you receive appropriate protection and that your rights are upheld throughout the process. We can help you understand your legal rights and options, prepare for court appearances, negotiate orders, and represent you in court if necessary.
