In Australia we have AVO - Apprehended Violence Order and ADVO - Apprehended Domestic Violence Order. One is domestic related and the other is not. As to why your Barrister did not offer you the option of applying for an AVO, that I cannot answer, you will need to ask them. An Intervention Order is to protect someone, adult or child, from particular behaviour that may occur towards another person, the likelihood must be high. AVO is where violence has already occurred and is seen to more than likely occur again. It really is a good idea to get some legal advice from a legal professional for your own specific case. If you feel you need to change the orders already made, you can through the court. It is always best to get the legal advice first though. On this page there is a "Find A Lawyer" section, where you can find one that is close to you and best suits your circumstances.
