Domestic Violence Lawyers in Kallangur
Paul Pattison Solicitors can help you apply to the local Magistrates court to get a Protection Order issued as well as assist you in revoking or making amendments to an existing order. We also provide a defence service for anyone who has been issued an order and wishes to contest it.
Domestic violence is considered to take place between people that are in an intimate relationship (such as marriage or de facto), a family relationship (between any two family members over the age of 18) or care relationship (such as an in-home carer). The law also considers domestic violence to involve more than just physical violence – it can include harassment, threats, intimidation and wilful damage.
If you have any questions about protection orders and how they work, contact Paul Pattison Solicitors today to organise an appointment or fill in the form on our contact page.
Protection Orders and DVO
In order to be awarded a Protection Order you have to able to prove that there is a domestic relationship, that there has been an act/s of violence (including non-physical violence) and that a DVO is a desirable solution to the issue.
At Paul Pattison Solicitors, our experienced team can help you decide whether this is an appropriate solution for you, and help you apply for the order if that is how you wish to proceed.
Defending Protection Orders
If you are on the receiving end of a protection order then you will need to decide whether or not you want to contest the order. There are several serious implications that can arise when an order is made against you including having a negative effect on any other legal proceedings that you are currently involved in such as family law cases involving children.
Paul Pattison Solicitors can walk you through all of the repercussions that come from having a protection order placed on you, and help you decide whether or not it is in your best interests to defend the order or not.
