This booklet has information about what might happen if you don’t follow a DVO.

Glossary: What these words mean

temporary domestic violence order (DVO)

If the police think someone isn’t safe they can make a temporary (also called interim) domestic violence order (DVO). For example, the police might make a temporary DVO when someone calls them because there is violence. A temporary DVO only lasts until it is talked about again in court. A judge can also make a temporary DVO. See also Domestic Violence Order (DVO).
