Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
I'm very concerned that you have committed yourself to be attacked and not reported the breach to the police, because that is the reason for the intervention orders that if the person does approach you they have breached the orders and you need to report them.
Because the police have requested you attend, you will be required to attend but you do not have to provide them with any information if you do not wish to.
When you were attacked by your partner, did you go and see a doctor and did you give them full disclosure of what happened and they have recorded?
A breach of a protection order is a criminal offence and at worst you can initially face time in jail.
If your partner is alleging your breach is because of your defending yourself, I suggest that you take any report from your doctor to the police when you see them and give them the full version of events as they will not charge you with the breach will go that your partner in charge him.
I am also concerned you mentioned child services, what does this have to do with your children? Are you concerned the children will be taken away from you if you report your partner for breaching the order?
I hope this is of assistance. If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know before leaving any feedback.
If I have assisted please do not forget to leave me with positive feedback.
