Intervention Orders

The Intervention Orders (Prevention of Abuse) Act 2009 (the Act) replaced the previous provisions for restraining orders and domestic violence restraining orders under the Summary Procedure Act 1921 and Domestic Violence Act 1994, respectively. The new Act introduced significant changes to improve the protection of individuals; these included the imposition of additional obligations upon the Court to notify various agencies and the provision of additional powers to the police to issue interim intervention orders without a court application. Police-issued interim orders must be listed before the Court within eight days of issue in the metropolitan area. Court applications can still be made by parties, including the police.
