Protection Orders

Both the ACT and NSW have comprehensive regimes for the protection of citizens.

In the ACT, these can take the form of family-violence orders, workplace orders or personal-protection orders.

While they are civil orders, breaches of them can result in criminal charges, with five years’ prison set as the maximum penalty.

Whether you are the Respondent (an Order is sought against you) or the Applicant for an Order, you need to know what to do when you come to Court.
