Protection Orders in Queensland
Protection orders in Queensland (also known as Domestic Violence Orders) are court orders made with conditions to prevent future domestic or family violence from occurring.
Protection orders are made in accordance with the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012. In some cases, the Queensland Criminal Code will also apply. The law aims to stop domestic violence from occurring, to maximise the safety of people subjected to domestic violence, and to make sure that perpetrators are held accountable for their behaviour.
