Application for Domestic Violence Order or Managing One Against You
A Domestic Violence Order (DVO) is an official order from the court to stop acts or threats of domestic violence.
In Queensland, anyone who is in a ‘relevant relationship’ and experiences domestic violence can apply for a DVO. The party who applied for the DVO is referred to as the ‘aggrieved’ party, while the recipient of the DVO is referred to as the ‘respondent’.
