Within Perth and Western Australia, the magistrates’ court has the jurisdiction to give restraining orders for an individual to be protected from the behavior of another person.
For instance, the individual bound by the restraining order may be forbidden to come near the protected person, approach the residence where the protected person lives or go close to their workplace through a clearly stated distance limit within the restraining order.
Even though there is no crime in being restricted by a restraining order, it is a criminal offence to violate any of the conditions specified in the restraining order.
In some cases, restraining orders may extend to affect other people related in some way with the person who requests to be given protection. The said relatives of the person who might be affected by the restraining order issued can include the children of the parents involved.
