McLaughlins Lawyers welcomes police action that takes breaches of domestic violence orders seriously.

A domestic violence order will be made by the Magistrates Court when the Magistrate is satisfied that  there is a relevant relationship between the Applicant and Respondent, an act of domestic violence has occurred and it is necessary or desirable that an order be made. A contravention of a domestic violence order can result in criminal charges.

If you need advice regarding the making or opposing of a domestic violence order, or want to understand your rights and obligations, we invite you to contact McLaughlins Lawyers today on (07) 5591 5099.
