A protection or domestic violence order can restrict contact with the aggrieved spouse as well as contact with children.

If you are subject to an order, you must understand that it is a very serious matter that deserves your prompt attention. There are potential consequences to a DVO even if you don’t break the order, from contact with children or even the ability for you to hold a weapons licence.

Difference between a temporary protection order vs protection order?

A temporary protection order is like a protection order but it’s for a shorter time to protect those in danger up until the date that a magistrate can decide, the application for the full protection order. A hearing for a final order will follow afterwards, but it is usually a long wait. It’s essential to follow and obey the temporary order and obtain legal advice as soon as possible.
