I'm the alleged victim in a domestic violence case in NSW,

Customer Question
Hi, I'm the alleged victim...
Hi, I'm the alleged victim in a domestic violence case in NSW, Australia. The first mention was yesterday and the next hearing date is in November since the defendant plead not guilty. I now want to withdraw the case and terminate the AVO and I'd like to come to the police station to talk to the prosecutor about dismissal. But my question is when will the subpoena to give evidence be prepared and served to me? If there's any possibility that the police officers have already got the subpoena, so once I come to the police, I will be served the subpoena physically? Since I don't want to come to the hearing to testify nor to receive the subpoena. So should I come to the police station to talk to them or should I avoid any physical contact with them? But I want to explain in person about why I want them to drop the case. Thank you!

just wonder can I come to the police to talk to the officer after the mention without being served by the subpoena?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I'm not able to phone call now. Can you give some suggestions? Or how long does it usually take for a subpoena to give evidence to be prepared?
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 11 months ago

Good Morning

You need to speak to the officer and discussed your position and in the end it is the police that have to decide to withdraw it. You are only their witness.

Forced AVO on my partner by police even though I objected to
Forced AVO on my partner by police even though I objected to it vehemently. I have been in a domestic violence cycle previously, not with my current partner. There is no history of violence or any signs, which I recognise instantly because of my past experience. My partners actions were totally out of character. His personality was altered and I believe he could possibly have had his drink spiked. He has no recollection of the events which took place. I have seen my partner intoxicated on several occasions and his behaviour remains the same as when he is sober. He has never shown aggression of any kind to me apart from this one event. I do not believe that the AVO is warranted nor would the police listen to my objections, effectively taking all my power from me. The strain on our family is unbearable because of this incident and the subsequent result. … read more
