File a restraining or protection order and ensure your safety

You can apply to have a restraining order made by the court to protect you from someone who commits family violence or personal violence against you, threatens you or your property harasses, or intimidates you, and you are concerned that it will continue.

We handle the following cases related to protection and safety:

Violence Restraining Orders (VRO) and Misconduct Restraining Orders (MRO)

A restraining order is a court order intended to protect you (or your family members) from harm from someone who has, or is likely to, hurt you. Generally, there are two types of restraining orders: violence restraining order (VRO) and misconduct restraining order (MRO). Child protection orders are different to family violence orders. They are made by a state Children’s Court when it is believed that a child is in need of protection. However, children can sometimes be included on family violence orders made for a parent. You can apply to have a restraining order made by the court to protect you from someone who commits family violence or personal violence against you, threatens you or your property harasses, or intimidates you, and you are concerned that it will continue. At Tang Law, we have experienced lawyers who can help you file for a restraining order with the Magistrates Court. You need to act quickly if you are, or fear that you will be, subject to an act of violence. Our lawyers are available to guide you through the court procedures which need to be followed when seeking a restraining order.

Injunctions and Child Protection

In addition to restraining orders, in proceedings in relation to children you may seek an injunction from the Family Court for, amongst other things, personal protection.

An injunction is an order made by the Court to restrain the other party from doing certain acts or things. Often, an application for injunction has to be made urgently and on an ex-parte basis, meaning without the other party being present in court. Ex parte applications are made in urgent and serious matters.

Under the Family Law Act, the Family Court also has the power to grant an injunction to protect the welfare of a child. The injunction may be for the personal protection of the child, the child’s parents or other carers; to restrain a person from entering or remaining in a place; or to restrain a person from relocating with the child or taking the child overseas.

You should get legal advice before making such an application. At Tang Law, we have experienced family lawyers who can guide you through the process of filing an injunction.
