How long does an AVO last & can you vary it?

An AVO lasts for a specified period of time. The AVO could be for two or three years depending on what the magistrate has deemed necessary in your case to protect the person in need of protection.

Before the period of the AVO ends you can apply to the court to have the AVO varied, revoked or extended.

If you have been issued with an AVO call North Shore Criminal Law on (02) 9955 2298 or call our 24 hour Emergency Service on 0400 44 64 24 to speak to an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist.
