Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Could you please explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I'm not sure how much more is relevant. I am simply asking if it is possible to break an avo when the avo holder comes to your residence to cause trouble. There was no violence no altercation. He was simply in breach of the avo by closeness. is this possible obviously I don't think it can be due to the overwhelming ability to be injustly set up
Expert:  James-Law replied 11 months ago.

Just to clarify, AVO?

Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand I am very limited on what I can tell you and that you may have to get more detailed advice.

Unfortunately it is depending on what the order actually says.

If it is a matter where she entered and he did nothing and she called the police then he can argue he did nothing.

It all depends on the detail of the order and what happened on the day that the order was allegedly breached

He has to look at the facts and see if they are correct or not.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

That info is next to useless and I don't think worth anything.

Good Morning.

I am sorry you fee this way. It is very difficult to give you anything more without seeing the facts but most AVO say he will not approach intimidate etc. If he has done any of this he is in breach.
