If you feel you are in immediate danger please call the police as the first priority.

If you are the victim or family violence, or you have grounds to believe that you are at risk of family violence you can apply for a Personal Protection Order (PPO) in Singapore. The PPO is effectively a restraining order against the person whom the order is made against.

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

  • 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.

If you are the victim of family violence or you are afraid of the potential for violence to occur, please get in touch with us to discuss your situation and review possible options.

Personal Protection Orders are available to protect against the following:

  • Spouse or former spouse;
  • A child, including step and adopted children;
  • Father, mother, in-laws or siblings of the offender;
  • Any other relative or person who is unable to look after him or herself and is in the opinion of the Court that he or she should be regarded as a member of the family.
