At a contested hearing, a magistrate will make their determination on whether and the terms of any orders they issue based on all information gathered such as witness testimony and documents you provided them with.

The Crimes (Family Violence) Act 1987 (Vic) established intervention orders as one of many legal mechanisms available to courts when dealing with family violence.
