A Violence Restraining Order (VRO) offers legally-binding protection against harassment, violence and intimidation. A VRO, once made, will show up in police records, such as when applying for employment.

When a VRO is appropriate

If someone is violent towards you, threatens you or your property, harasses or intimidates you, and you are fearful that the behaviour will continue, you can apply for a restraining order at the Magistrates Court nearest to you.

We can assist you to see if you can negotiate an agreement with the other party, and can represent you in Court at any stage of the process.
