What is an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (ADVO)?
Domestic violence orders (ADVOs) are issued when the parties involved are related, live together, or are or were in an intimate relationship. If police are approached about a domestic incident, they may be legally obligated to apply for an AVO if they suspect a domestic violence offence has been, is being, or is about to be committed. This occurs even if the victim clearly declares that they do not wish to seek an AVO.
What is an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (APVO)
Apprehended Personal Violence Orders (APVOs) are issued when the parties do not have a domestic connection. In most circumstances, an APVO is initiated by the applicant appearing in court and filing an application through the register. This is a typical sort of AVO between neighbours.
