Restraining Orders

John Sutton

This section contains information on Violence Restraining Orders (VRO) and Misconduct Restraining Orders (MRO). Any reference to legislation refers to the Restraining Orders Act 1997 (WA) unless otherwise stated.

VRO’s and MRO’s are both court orders and are considered civil orders. They do not appear on a person’s criminal record. They are designed to restrain a person’s behaviour towards another person. However; if a person breaches a VRO or MRO that person can be charged with a criminal offence. If convicted of that offence, that conviction will appear on a person’s criminal record unless a spent conviction order has been made in relation to it. For more information on possible charges and penalties see the links below.

where to next?

If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
