Under the Family Law Act 1975, you can apply to the court for an urgent injunction to stop the negative conduct if the lacal court has not issued a full order yet.

The AVO adjournment by the local court, will be overruled by the Family Court if you immediately commence proceedings in the Family Court.

Alternatively If you have not received a court date for the adjournment, you can apply to another police station to obtain an interim order to stop your partner contacting to you.

If there is an interim order in place at the moment that order will remain enforce until the hearing date (adjournment) until the matter is resolved.

You have a legal right to protect your interests in this situation and your child.

If you need urgent help please let me know.

Does this answer your important question today ?

If you need any further information please let me know and I will be pleased to assist.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

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
