Respondent to an Intervention Order

Our client was a respondent to an intervention order taken out by their ex-partner. One of the conditions that the ex-partner wanted on the order would have meant that our client be excluded from attending a karaoke venue, which was a location that our client attended weekly with friends.

We represented the client at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court.

In accordance with the client’s instructions, we sought to resolve the application so as to ensure that our client did not have to stress about attending court again. However this proved somewhat difficult as the other party were not willing to budge on their original position.

Negotiations went on for a number of hours. By not taking “no” for an answer and by remaining steadfast in discussion with the other party’s lawyer, we were able to have the order worded in such a way that our client’s social life was not affected at all. The client was very happy because not only did they not have to come back to court, they were also able to continue to attend their karaoke venue like they wanted.

This was an excellent outcome for a case that involves a respondent to an intervention order.
