An Intervention Order (IVO) or an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) is an order made by the court that prohibits the defendant from certain behaviour, such as harassment, stalking, intimidation, violence or the threat of violence. The purpose of an IVO/AVO is to provide protection from this behaviour in the future – it usually states that a person cannot behave as such or go within a certain distance of the home or workplace of the person lodging the complaint.
If you need an IVO/AVO, or if somebody has made and IVO/AVO against you, it is recommended to seek legal advice from an experienced Lawyer immediately.
