I have a temporary Domestic Violence Order against me for my daughter and my former partner. I have applied for interim orders and have been granted 3 hour supervised visits only with my daughter because of the DVO. The matter is being heard next week, I am fighting the order. I want my daughter removed from the order, there is no evidence of abuse against my daughter. The courts are basing the order on what my former partner has stated. I was advised by a DVO prosecutor to fight it entirely as the order was made in early January. I have not spoken to or made any form of contact with my former partner for over 8 months. We separated, she would not allow me to see my daughter, she moved in with a man I believe she was having an affair with. I sent her life threatening text messages from a different state. I was emotionally distraught at the time as I have always known she would do anything to stop me from seeing my daughter again. She has separation issues. When I see my daughter for the weekly visits, the former partner sits in her car within 40 metres from me. The DVO says I am not allowed to be less than 100 metres from her. Do I have grounds to fight the DVO under family law or because of the abusive life threatening text messages I sent her over Xmas, will they automatically grant her the DVO?
