Consenting to an AVO


An AVO can be granted if both the respondent and the protected person consent to the order being made. You can consent to an AVO without admitting the things that are alleged against you.

The benefit of having orders made by consent is that there is no hearing. This reduces costs, time and the inconvenience of giving evidence.

However, it is important to carefully consider the consequences of an AVO being made. If an order is made, and you are then accused of breaching it, you could be charged with a criminal offence. At the same time, it is important to note that an AVO is not a conviction and thus will not give you a criminal record.
