Because of the bruises the police have to act and it is assault and the AVO is automatic
I would suggest you not speak to him because he can be in breach of the AVO and it will not assist him.
If he is charged with assault you cannot withdraw the charges they are in the hands of the police. if you change your story and allege you consented to the handcuffs then you can be in trouble for misleading the police.
The first date should be on the paperwork the police have handed your boyfriend and if they have not been issued yet you can ask the police.
The charges are serious and he will get a criminal record if found guilty.
But is it always best not to have contact with each other because if the order says he should not contact you then he is in breach and if the police are told then he can be charged further
He has to get himself a solicitor.
