Interstate orders​

    Orders made in an​​​other state

    An Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) made in another Australian state or territory, or in New Zealand, may be registered in New South Wales (NSW).​

    An AVO made outside of N​ew South Wales is called an 'External Protection Order'. An External Protection Order may also be referred to as an Intervention Order, Restraining Order, Protection Order or Domestic Violence Order.

    To register an External Protection Order in New South Wales, you need to apply to the registrar of a local court (usually by completing a form, which is available from the court).

    You will need to provide :

    1. ​​a copy of the order you want registered
    2. evidence that the defendant has been given (served) a copy of that order.

    It is a good idea to telephone or visit the local court to confirm the process at that court.

    The registrar may register the order straight away. Sometimes a magistrate may have to consider the order if there are any changes needed to make the order work under New South Wales law.​ Usually you will not have to appear before the magistrate.

    Once the AVO is registered it has the same effect as an AVO made i​​n New South Wales. It is then referred to as a 'Registered External Protection Order'.

    Alert IconA copy of the registered External Protection Order can only be given to the defendant with the permission of the protected person. If you are the protected person and you do not want the defendant to know your address, you do not have to give your permission.

    The order continues to protect you in New South Wales even if the original order in another state or territory is revoked (ended) or varied (changed). If the defendant wants to end or change the registered exte​rnal protection order they must apply to the Local Court in New South Wales.

    Orders made in New South Wales

    An AVO made in NSW may be registered in another Australian state or territory, or in New Zealand.

    If you are protected by an AVO made in NSW and you want to move away from NSW, you should get legal advice from a lawyer in the state or territory you want the AVO registered in.
