Intervention Order Advice

IVO Legal Advice to Victorian Applicants and Respondents

“He who represents himself has a fool for a client.” Quote by Abraham Lincoln.

Do you understand how an intervention order will impact on your employment, you spending time with your children, travelling overseas, your working with children card, where you will live, and your prospects of getting a fair family law property settlement?

You may be told that you can get legal advice from a duty lawyer at the court.  That can be true, but they are not always available and regularly they have over 20 clients to see that day.  And very often they will encourage you concede your legal rights to defend an unfair application against you.  Do you need legal advice before going to court?  Its $275 well spent

Respondent Despondent

You will not be given a chance to contest the IVO allegations until a final hearing is held possibly in 6 months time – How is that fair?

Separation by IVO

Frequently people are using Intervention Order Proceedings to separate from a partner and as a form of Poor Man’s (or Poor Woman’s) Family Law – IVO’s are for safety not parenting orders.

Mission Impossible

When your partner doesnt get it that they are harming you by their controlling behaviour you need to know the options.
