Intellectual Disability Rights Service (IDRS) have produced an Easy English booklet on what you need to know and do if you are under an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO).

“Get to Know Your AVO” – highlights the importance of understanding the AVO rules.

Getting an AVO from the police can be both upsetting and confusing. AVOs have rules that have to be followed, so it is best to get reliable information and support as soon as possible.

Understanding those rules and possible consequences if they are broken is important. This guide is written in Easy English and will help you find out what you need to know and do when you get an AVO out against you.
