Customer Question
Hi. I have just...

Hi. I have just recieved a letter from vic police in regards ***** ***** warrant from 10yrs ago. It was for breaking a CBO. I had no problem in doing the order it was my ex. If i didnt leave vic 11yrs ago i wouldnt be here now.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

Victoria. I think around 2007/2008. Not sure. I didnt realise i had one as i have lived in WA and have lived in qld for past 4yrs.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I dont know. I only recieved letter from Packenam police today. I called straight away.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am just very concerned at what is going to happen. I have never tried to avoid police and did try to transfer the CBO in katherine 2008. They said they couldnt transfer.
