What if the Intervention Order is “contested”?
Introduction to Intervention Order video
The Magistrates’ Court of Victoria has developed this mock hearing to inform those involved in intervention order hearings about the court process. The mock hearing is a “contested hearing”, meaning that the respondent is opposing the intervention order application.
What if the Intervention Order is breached?
Simple and practical advice on collecting evidence
Women’s Health West and Victoria Police collaborated to produce a short film that shows women how to collect evidence if their intervention order has been breached.
This five minute film demonstrates safe ways of gathering evidence.
Steps 2 Safety is a partnership project led by Eastern Community Legal Centre.
