The type of Restraining Order you have been served with will determine the legal course of action which should be taken (see below for further information)
A Family Violence Restraining Order will be granted to an applicant by a Court when that person can establish that they are, or have been, in a family or domestic relationship with the person from whom they are seeking to be protected (‘the respondent’).
The applicant must also show that the respondent has engaged in family violence against the applicant in the past and the respondent is likely to commit family violence again in the future or the applicant has reasonable grounds to apprehend that family violence will be committed against them.
