Types of intervention orders
An intervention order gives you protection if another person is harassing you or your physical or mental safety is at risk. In Victoria, there are two types of intervention orders:
- Personal safety intervention orders or PSIOs, that protect you from someone who is not your immediate family like a friend, work colleague or neighbour; and
- Family violence intervention orders or FVIOs, which are for domestic violence or family situations.
When an intervention order is in place, the person named in the order can’t approach, stalk or commit an act of violence against you. If they do, the police have the power to arrest the person immediately.
