Magistrates Court of Western Australia

A Violence Restraining Order (VRO) is an order made by the Court to restrain a person (known as the respondent or when an order is made, the person bound) from either committing an act of abuse, breaching the peace, causing fear, damaging property or intimidating another person (known as the person seeking to be protected).

A Violence Restraining Order  is made when an act of abuse has been, or is feared will be, committed.

You must lodge an application form (available from any court registry or online via the website) and ask to have the first hearing in the absence of the respondent.
