What is the consequence of a FVRO breach?

A FVRO and Conduct Agreement does not appear on a criminal record, unless those orders are breached. The conviction of the breach will appear on a criminal record.

The penalty for a breach of FVRO or Conduct Agreement Order can range from a fine, up to imprisonment. The extent of the penalty is dependent on the severity of the breach and the accused persons prior criminal history, including previous breaches of a FVRO or Conduct Agreement Order.

A breach of an Undertaking will not result in any criminal charges. It will however, serve as a strong basis for the granting of a further interim FVRO to the protected person.
