Family Violence Restraining Orders

Family Violence Restraining Orders can be resolved in a variety of ways including by undertaking or as follows.

Undertaking

Enter into a one way or into a mutual undertaking by consent.

An undertaking is a promise to the Court to act in a certain way and not to do certain things.

An undertaking can be made on a without admission basis. This means the person bound does not agree with allegations made against them.

An undertaking replaces the Family Violence Restraining Orders and can be made in the same or similar terms as the Family Violence Restraining Orders.

Whilst an undertaking remains on the Court file and the Court expects the promise to be kept the person bound cannot be criminally charged for breaching the undertaking.
