The By Lawyers Domestic Violence (QLD) publication has been reviewed. The matter plan has been revised and re-ordered for better workflow and searchability.
New or enhanced sections of commentary include:
- Police applications for temporary protection orders and Police protection notices;
- Interaction with family law orders;
- Negotiating orders;
- First return date;
- Consent orders;
- Withdrawing an application;
- Variation of orders;
- The National Domestic Violence orders Scheme; and
Additional links to relevant sections of the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 have been inserted in the commentary. There are also links to the rules and to other relevant legislative instruments, such as the Acts Interpretation Act 1954 (Qld) which defines ‘spouse’ to include both a de facto partner and a registered partner.
This review is part of By Lawyers’ ongoing commitment to updating and enhancing our publications.
