Intervention Order Support Services
Intervention Order Support Services (IOSS) provide a duty lawyer to assist clients at Court.
The Intervention Order Support Service at the Ringwood Magistrates’ Court is run by ECLC in partnership with Victoria Legal Aid Ringwood (VLA) and Eastern Domestic Violence Outreach Service (EDVOS), with the support and co-operation of the Court.
At Court, priority is given to clients seeking Family Violence related Intervention Orders. ECLC is generally unable to provide advice on ‘stalking matters’ (eg. in relation to a neighbour), and strongly recommends seeking legal advice before attending Court.
For further information on the IOSS service, please download the IOSS Brochure PDF.
