Cross-application (for an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order)

Where applications for Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs, also known as AVOs) are made by two parties against each other so that the defendant in one matter is the applicant in the other, the second application to be lodged with the court is known as a “cross-application” and the person who lodged the second application is known as a “cross applicant”.
