YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO FEEL SAFE
Intervention orders are most typically needed for matters of family violence. Family violence includes any physical, emotional or psychological abuse of a person by a family member. The team at Waters Lawyers are highly professional, compassionate and sensitive in matters of family violence. We care about your wellbeing and safety and will be there for you through every step of the journey. We are experienced in attending court for these matters and will fight on your behalf with respect and dignity.
A family violence intervention order renders certain conduct by the accused a criminal offence. These types of intervention orders are incredibly powerful and enable you to receive the protection of the Victorian Police when your physical and emotional wellbeing is at risk.
Intervention orders can be obtained on an urgent basis and without the perpetrator receiving any notice of the application. Orders are obtained by applying directly to the Court.
You can be confident the Court and the Police will do all they can to ensure your safety.
For urgent family violence matters, please ring 000 immediately.
