CRIMES (DOMESTIC AND PERSONAL VIOLENCE) ACT 2007 - SECT 98ZG
Non-local DVO to be treated as local DVO
98ZG Non-local DVO to be treated as local DVO
(1) A recognised DVO that is a non-local DVO has the same effect in New South
Wales as a local DVO.
(2) A prohibition, restriction or condition imposed by
a non-local DVO has the same meaning as it would have in the jurisdiction in
which the DVO was made, but may be enforced in New South Wales as if it were a
prohibition or restriction of a local DVO.
Note : Section 14 of this Act
creates an offence if a person contravenes a prohibition or restriction in an
apprehended violence order. This means that a condition of a non-local DVO
that is in the nature of a prohibition or restriction can be enforced in New
South Wales. However, a condition of a non-local DVO that is not in the nature
of a prohibition or restriction (for example, a condition that requires the
defendant to attend an alcohol rehabilitation course) cannot be enforced.
