Good Morning

You are putting him in danger of a breach if you do attend. If you wish to see him in jail you need to have the ADVO amended by the court so that it permits you to visit him and that when you do it is not a breach.

If you visit him, and the ADVO says he will not approach you, then he is in breach of that order.

You have to seek that it be varied to be able to visit him so he is not in breach.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

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
