      AVO Withdrawn By Police After Representations

      Our client is a well-known media personality who is also a board member of a domestic violence charity.

      He was on holiday with his wife and two children in the NSW South Coast when an incident occurred between himself and his wife.

      Police were called to the scene. When they arrived they video recorded a statement with his wife. This is known as a Domestic Violence Evidence in Chief (DVEC).

      Despite our client protesting his innocence, officers applied for an apprehended violence order (AVO) against him.

      Our client came to us distressed at what had occurred and also concerned about the possibility of media attention.

      We immediately go to work in preparing lengthy and detailed legal representations for the withdrawal of the AVO.

      Ultimately, after significant negotiation with Police we were able to persuade them to withdraw the AVO early in proceedings.

      This saved our client significant time and expense. Both he and his family can move on with their lives without the AVO hanging over their heads.
