It is important you get legal advice as soon as possible. Doogue + George lawyers deal with family violence and intervention order matters regularly. We understand the law and how it applies to defending these charges. There are many important issues in family violence matters such as;

  • Whose version of events is the truth?
    These types of offences are usually committed in private and it often comes down to who is telling the truth. Often the person with the intervention order makes contact with the accused when they should not be.
  • How did it end like this?
    These charges frequently arise out of relationships that started well. It is important to explain what has gone wrong to the Judge so they can understand your point of view.
  • How do we show the Court it is not going to happen again?
    This is crucial in situations where there have been ongoing breaches of intervention orders. The Court needs to know its orders will be followed and what steps you have taken to change your behaviour.
