Queensland Magistrates Court

A Domestic Violence Order (DVO) is a different legal option to someone being charged with a criminal offence as it is a civil order.

A DVO tells the person who has been violent towards you what they must not do in the future. You can apply for a DVO to help protect you, your children and other people named on the DVO from someone who has been violent towards you.

A guide to completing the Application for a Protection Order and the application form are available on the Queensland Courts website. You can apply for a protection order yourself or get a police officer, solicitor or authorised person (friend, relative, or community/welfare worker) to apply for you.
