What a protection order does
Special conditions for contact and other issues
When you obtain a protection order the Family Court can also impose any special conditions that are reasonably necessary to protect you or your children from further family violence.
Often these will relate to arrangements for contact with your children. For example, the protection order might say it won’t be a breach of the order if the respondent contacts you about issues specifically to do with your child, or if the respondent has contact with the child at a certain time and place.
Another type of special condition is a restriction on where the respondent is allowed to go – this might be imposed if, for example, there’s been a pattern of stalking.
