(1) A court may vary or revoke a recognised DVO that is a non-local DVO in
accordance with this Division as if the DVO were a local DVO.
(2) A court
cannot vary or revoke a non-local DVO if it is a kind of DVO that cannot be
varied or revoked by a court in the jurisdiction in which the DVO was made.
(3) A variation to or revocation of a recognised DVO that is done under this
Division is not limited in its operation to New South Wales.

registered foreign orders (which in Part 13 are referred to as registered
external protection orders) can be varied or revoked under section 98.

jurisdiction, the other jurisdiction continues to be treated, for the purpose
of this Part, as the jurisdiction in which the DVO was made.
