A personal safety intervention order is an order made by a magistrate to help protect a person from physical or mental harm caused by someone who is not a family member.

The magistrate may make a personal safety intervention order if the respondent has done any of the following things to the protected person: assault, sexual assault, harassment, property damage or interference with property, serious threats or stalking.

The police will send the respondent copies of the application, summons and any interim orders made. If you are served with a personal safety intervention order, there are a number of options you need to consider. One option might be (depending on the circumstances) to try and resolve the matter by negotiation; that is, if the protected person agrees.
