If you are facing family violence, you can apply for a Personal Protection Order (“PPO”) restraining the person against whom the order is made from using family violence. The application may be made by the family member concerned, or by a guardian or relative if that family member is below the age of 21 years. The court may grant the PPO upon satisfaction, on a balance of probabilities, that family violence has been committed or is likely to be committed against you and that such order is necessary.

According to section 64 of the Women’s Charter (Cap 353), “family violence” is defined as follows:

  • Willfully or knowingly placing, or attempting to place, a family member in fear of hurt;
  • Causing hurt to a family member by such act which is known or ought to have been known would result in hurt;
  • Wrongfully confining or restraining a family member against his will; or
  • Causing continual harassment with intent to cause or knowing that it is likely to cause anguish to a family member.

You may apply for a PPO at the Family Protection Centre at the Family Justice Courts or to a Family Violence Specialist Centre.
