Hello, I am just chasing some general information about how to change conditions of a DVO ( domestic violence restraining order). I have the appropriate paperwork completed and ready to go. I am more interested in the actual court process involved if anyone could shed any light on it? Such as do we both attend, is it done in one hearing, what supporting information should be provided, if at all? etc. Just for a bit of background, I applied for a DVO against my ex almost 2 years ago where he was not to have any contact with me whatsoever (due to expire in 4 months). He has since been diagnosed with a personality disorder, attends weekly psychiatrist, group and alcohol abuse appointments and has made great improvements with his mental health and just life in general. We have had minimal contact during his recovery but now would like to attend counselling together, and apart from this he has abided by the order the entire time it has been in affect. I do not want to remove the 'must not commit domestic violence' part (got to cover myself still just in case!) but I am seeking for the removal of the no contact elements of the order. Any help is greatly appreciated, I can't find much info past having to lodge the application with the court (duh!).
