Reporting breaches is often a requirement of an intervention order. The reporting is also an important part of ensuring that an intervention order is carried out as effectively as possible.

You must go to court if you are suspected of violating an Intervention Order. The process can take several weeks. You may also need to take out an attorney to assist you in fighting the charges.

A petition for protection may be required. A petition is similar to a formal complaint made with the police. In certain cases, the police might apply for an Interim Family Violence Intervention Order. This is a temporary order that is issued until the parties can appear in court.
If you are suspected or suspected of breaking an intervention order, the police might also want to interview. This can be done in person, or by telephone. For the investigation of family violence, the police will use a code.

Personal safety intervention order
You may have been threatened or a victim to a crime and been asked to sign an Affidavit for Personal Safety Intervention Order (PSIO). The next step is to give this information to your local Magistrates’ Court. This process can be confusing. You can get expert legal advice before going to court.

Breaching a Personal Safety Intervention Order is a serious criminal charge. A person who violates the order may face a level 7, 7 or 7 year sentence. It is important to read the terms of the order before you break them.
Persistent contraventions of orders and notices
During the past few years the Family Violence Protection Act (FVPA) has been amended to introduce three new offences. One of these new offences is persistently violating notices and orders. These new offenses can lead to a maximum penalty of five year imprisonment. Although the FVPA has just begun, the police system and courts already recognize the importance in enforcing orders to stop family violence.
To make the most out of the new offences the Victorian police have required all suspected violators be interviewed informally to foster a culture of accountability. But, this isn’t always possible. Ultimately, if the police believe an accused has been persistently contravening the rules, the police may charge them without an interview. Although it is unlikely that an accused will be charged for every violation, the police will still need to prove that they committed the required number of violations. This could lead to a long-term commitment on probation, parole, and other correctional actions.
The FVPA’s new offenses have been added to by the Victoria Police who have also passed the Persistent contravention notices and orders in the local court system. This is the first time that a criminal offense of this nature has been handled at the local level. The prosecution may be allowed to fine a suspect as high as $93273 for the most serious offences. It is important that you note that this only applies to the county court system and is not available to the Magistrates Court. This offence is not available on land.
The most important thing to remember about family violence safety notices (FVSN and FVIO), is that they can be violated. It can have a severe impact on the victim and cause fear, anxiety, and even suicidal thinking. It can also cause property damage. If you are accused of violating a FVSN or family violence intervention order, or any other related crime, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon and as possible.

Depending on the nature and severity of the breach you could be charged with aggravated violations. If you are found guilty of aggravated offenses, you could face upto five years in prison. You could also be fined up $93273. If you are charged for an IVO violation, it is best that you seek legal advice from a professional.

They also can help you decide whether access to the systems is necessary. They can also help you to change passwords and credentials, monitor exit points and prevent data loss.
If the breach involves more than 500 residents, notification is required. This notification will be in the form of a press release or a prominent media outlet. You must also provide a toll-free phone number for individuals to call to learn if their personal information has been compromised. The toll-free phone number must remain in effect for at least 90 calendar days. You must also give a description of the breach including the types and extent of the information that was compromised.
