If a respondent fails to comply with a domestic violence order the aggrieved can report the breach to the police and the respondent can be charged with a criminal offence. These breaches are taken very seriously by the Court and can attract terms of imprisonment. If a no contact order is in place, a respondent can technically be in breach of the order even if the aggrieved contacts the respondent first. In this situation, conditions can be structured to allow a respondent to contact an aggrieved if the aggrieved gives the respondent permission in writing first.
