  • Common assault
  • Assault occasioning actual bodily harm

Common assault is the most minor type of assault. It can involve any type of physical contact or act (not necessarily physical) upon another person without their consent which causes another person to fear immediate and unlawful violence.
Actual bodily harm can be any hurt or bodily injury calculated to interfere with the health or comfort of the victim. It includes scratches, bruising, cuts and abrasions.


Domestic & Personal violence

  • Domestic / personal violence
  • Breach domestic / personal violence order
  • Stalking or intimidation

AVOs are orders that a Court makes to protect people. AVOs protect people by ordering defendants not to do specific things. There are two categories of AVOs. Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs) for circumstances where there is a domestic relationship and Apprehended Personal Violence Orders (APVOs) for circumstances where there is no domestic relationship between the protected persons and defendants.
The defendant may only contact the protected person through the legal representative while an AVO remains in force. If the defendant disobeys any of the orders in the AVO, the defendant may be arrested and charged. An application can be made to the Court at any time to vary or revoke the AVO.
