    Hi, I have a question.

    I was charged and convicted and given a 6-month sentence but it was suspended after 2 months and if I break the bond in the 2 years, I will have to serve remaining 4 months. Anyway, my brother-in-law wants to put a DVO out on me because I called him a piece of s**t on Facebook. Will this break my bond? Will I go back to jail?

    Was that the extent of what you said to your brother-in-law? Were there any other threats or acts of physical violence, etc? Because I very much doubt a court will rely on that as a basis for instituting a DVO. If that's all it took everyone would have DVOs against them.

    DVOs are not crimes in themselves, they are civil orders however breaching a DVO is a crime.
