You must attend Court on all dates that the Application is in Court. You need to indicate that you disagree with an Order being made. When you disagree with the Order being made the Application will proceed to a Hearing. Before that Hearing you and the person seeking the Order (the Aggrieved) will need to make a statement in the form of an Affidavit and file that in the Court. Any witnesses for you and the person seeking the Order also make an Affidavit which is filed in the Court. At the Hearing the person seeking the Order, any witnesses on their behalf, you and any witnesses on your behalf can all be questioned (cross examined) by the Magistrate or by any legal representative for the person seeking the Order or for you. Once all the evidence is heard by the Magistrate a decision is made as to whether to make the Protection Order which has been applied for. You should seek legal advice if you do not agree with an Order being made.
