Lawyer in

A domestic violence protection order is a document issued by the court which prevents the abuser from:

  • committing an act of domestic violence
  • enlisting the help of another person to commit any such act
  • entering a residence shared by the complainant and the respondent
  • entering a specified part of such a shared residence
  • entering the complainant’s residence
  • entering the complainant’s place of employment
  • preventing the complainant who ordinarily lives or lived in a shared residence from entering or remaining in the shared residence or a specified part of the shared residence or
  • committing any other act as specified in the protection order.
  • A protection order may be obtained on the same day, but generally, this depends on the complexity of your case.
  • The order is valid until the abused person cancels it.
  • If the abuser lodges an appeal, the order continues to operate until it is cancelled by the Appeal Court.
