Domestic Violence / AVO
Lionheart Lawyers provide solid advice, representation and practical solutions to family law and all areas of domestic violence and apprehended violence orders (AVO). We are dedicated to achieving the best results for you – whatever your situation, such as needing an AVO order application or defence lawyer representation. With over 50 years collective experience, our extensive knowledge and practice means we can transform seemingly complex issues into practical and achievable outcomes.
ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENTS AND CONSENT ORDERS
As family and domestic violence law experts, we can advise and assist you in the preparation (or setting aside) of enforceable agreements concerning the custody and care of your children, the division of property, spouse maintenance payments and some child support payments. We also advise and assist in the preparation and updating of consent orders for filing in the Family Court.
PROTECTION FROM ASSAULT OR THREATENED ASSAULT
If one party has threatened or assaulted the other party or the children (which can include making “kick-out” threats), the Family Court, Federal Circuit Court or a Local Court can make Apprehended Violence Orders (AVO) to stop or prevent further violence.
If a child or children have been abducted or taken away from their primary carer, the carer can apply for a recovery order in the Family Court, Federal Magistrates Court or Local Court. Such an application should be made as soon as possible. Our lawyers are available to provide you with urgent advice and assistance.
We understand and appreciate that matters involving violence often require prompt action, and we provide you with sound and compassionate advice in a safe environment. Contact us for a free consultation.
