98ZM Power of court to vary or revoke recognised non-local DVOs
(1) A court may vary or revoke a recognised DVO that is a non-local DVO in accordance with this Division as if the DVO were a local DVO.(2) A court cannot vary or revoke a non-local DVO if it is a kind of DVO that cannot be varied or revoked by a court in the jurisdiction in which the DVO was made.(3) A variation to or revocation of a recognised DVO that is done under this Division is not limited in its operation to New South Wales.(4) This Division does not apply to the variation or revocation of a foreign order that is registered as a registered foreign order in New South Wales.Note.Locally registered foreign orders (which in Part 13 are referred to as registered external protection orders) can be varied or revoked under section 98.(5) To avoid doubt, if a court varies a recognised DVO that was made in another jurisdiction, the other jurisdiction continues to be treated, for the purpose of this Part, as the jurisdiction in which the DVO was made.
