What happens once an application for domestic violence has been filed in the court? What are the next steps in the legal process? And what happens in court?
The first court date after an application for domestic violence order has been made is called a mention. At this time, yours and other applications are heard by the magistrate, one at a time.
The next steps are all outlined in this informative video from Queensland Courts (see below). Please watch it and share it with anyone you think could benefit from this important information. (This is the fourth video in our series of six. Check back for our next post which will give you even more insight into the process).

Queensland Courts have published a series of videos explaining the court process for making domestic violence orders. If you are applying or responding to a domestic violence order, there is information on their website for you. Domestic Violence Orders are part of a strategy to protect the safety of all members of our community and to stop the violence.
