An important legal step is to obtain an Intervention order to prevent domestic violence. It is also a crime to violate an Intervention Order.
An Intervention Order does not require that you be physically attacked. Abuse can take the form of financial, emotional, and psychological abuse. It can involve a spouse, children or pets. It can also include verbal abuse and threats to harm. If the court thinks that the order is necessary, it may award temporary possession of personal property or require the person to leave the home or surrender a dangerous weapon.
It is also possible to apply for an Emergency Protective Order. If the abuser is not present, the court will still be able to consider the application. However, the court will need to be persuaded that good reasons should be given for the order to be made without the abuser present. The court could also ask the abuser for a hearing.
The court may consider criminal history of the abuser when making an order. It will also assess the reputation of that person in society, and whether it is a history of family violence.
Breach of a Family Violence Intervention Order constitutes a criminal offense. Breach of a Family Violence Intervention Order can lead to penalties ranging from $25 to 364 day imprisonment. The fines go up to $100 if an abuser is convicted for a second offense. The penalties for a third or subsequent offense are increased to four years imprisonment.
In addition to being a criminal offense, a breach of an Intervention Order is a civil offense. The penalty for breaching a restraining order can range from $25 to 364 days in prison.

Family violence safety notice
Depending on the circumstances, a breach of an intervention order or a family violence safety note could lead to criminal charges. An Intervention Order is a legal order issued by a magistrate to protect a person against further family violence. A safety notice is a notice from the police that is intended to prevent a person using family violence. The respondent is the person who receives the notice. The safety notice will contain conditions that the respondent must follow until a court hearing.
There are many reasons for police to apply for a safety notice. First, to protect a family member. A second reason is to safeguard an AFM (adult member of the family). A third reason is to protect a child. A fourth reason is to protect a person’s property. Safety notices are usually issued by higher-ranking police officers. A police officer can apply for a safety notice when he or she believes that there are threats of violence or that an AFM is acting out.
Once the police officer has decided that a safety notice is necessary, they will file the notice with the Magistrates’ Court. A magistrate will then decide what steps to take. The magistrate may choose to make an interim intervention order or not. They might also issue a safety warning. If they feel that the applicant is not acting in their best interests, the magistrate can dismiss the application.
Once the magistrate has made a decision, the police officer will give a copy to the respondent
The safety notice will include the date and time of the first mention. It will also contain demographic data on the respondent as well as the affected family member. If the safety notice contains conditions that the respondent must comply with, the police officer will inform the respondent. Some conditions may require that the respondent must leave his or her home or go to a certain address. The police officer may also attempt to convert the safety note to a no-contact order.
If the police officer feels that the safety notice is inappropriate for the respondent’s case, they may issue an Intervention Order. The police officer may also arrest the respondent for violating an intervein order and a family safety notice. If the police officer decides to arrest the respondent they may take the respondent to a police station where they will refer them to emergency accommodation. If the respondent does not appear at the police station the officer may file criminal charges against him.
A safety notice is similar in function to a regular Intervention Order. The main difference is the fact that the safety notice is issued not by the complainant but by the police. The police officer will explain all details of the safety order and may request that the respondent attend the police station to collect it.
