Peace and Good Behaviour Applications

The Peace and Good Behaviour Act 1982 is designed to protect your right to peace and quiet and to eliminate threats to your wellbeing or your quality of life.

An application can be made if a person (including a neighbour, co-worker, ex-employee etc) has:

  • threatened to assault you or another person in your care and you are in fear of that person because of that threat; or
  • threatened to have someone else cause injury to you or another person in your care and you are in fear of that person because of the threat; or
  • threatened to destroy or damage your property or have someone else destroy or damage your property and you are in fear of the person because of the threat.

At Robertson O’Gorman we have successfully acted for both Applicants and Defendants.

In our experience, the standard of proof required to demonstrate the threats and fear required for these applications to be successful is a high standard.

We are able to offer our clients an extensive understanding and application of the rules of evidence to maximise your prospects of obtaining or defending an application of a peace and good behaviour application.
