ADVOs and Court Advocacy

Staff at the Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service (WDVCAS), provide information and support to women in relation to Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs) and domestic violence related charges. Staff attend the local court on ADVO ‘list’ days and provide support throughout the court process. Please call for an appointment.

Staff also receive referrals from the Police for women who have been involved in a domestic violence incident and provide follow up phone calls to offer referrals and court advocacy support.

Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service is funded by Legal Aid NSW
