What is a Temporary Domestic Violence Order?

A magistrate will put in place a temporary domestic violence after hearing an application for a protection order and deciding that a temporary domestic violence order is necessary given the information presented and the circumstances.

Should you be served a domestic violence protection order, our advice is to contact a solicitor and get information and advice as to the specific terms of the order.

It is a criminal offence to breach any part of the order, so you must ensure you comply with it.

You will be notified of a court date and failure to attend will likely result in an order being made in your absence.

We can ensure you don’t face court alone.
