News Alert


National Domestic Violence Order Scheme

On 25 November 2017, the National Domestic Violence Order Scheme (NDVOS) commenced. From this date, every new family violence restraining order and police order will be automatically recognised and enforceable across Australia.

If your restraining order (of a domestic nature) was issued before 25 November 2017, you can choose to have it declared a nationally recognised order so that you are protected across Australia. However, if you are not planning to travel to or live within another state or territory, you may choose not to declare your order. You will remain protected in WA.

For further information about the Scheme see the NDVOS Fact Sheet on the Restraining Orders page.
