Seek help against family violence in Singapore

If you are in immediate danger, your first step should be to call the police without hesitation. Your safety is paramount. For victims of family violence or those who fear they may be at risk, there is a legal avenue to seek protection in Singapore—a Personal Protection Order (PPO). This order acts as an effective restraining measure against the person causing harm.

According to Section 64 of the Women's Charter (Cap 353), "family violence" encompasses the following:

  1. Instilling Fear: Wilfully or knowingly instigating fear of harm in a family member.
  2. Inflicting Harm: Causing harm to a family member through actions that were known or should have been known to result in harm.
  3. Unlawful Confinement: Wrongfully confining or restraining a family member against their will.
  4. Continuous Harassment: Persistently harassing a family member with the intention of causing anguish or knowing that such actions are likely to inflict distress.

Your Safety Matters

Whether you are a victim of family violence or live in fear of potential harm, we urge you to reach out to us. We are here to discuss your situation, offer guidance, and explore the available options to ensure your safety.

Personal Protection Orders can be sought to protect against the following individuals:

  • Spouse or former spouse
  • Children, including stepchildren and adopted children
  • Father, mother, in-laws, or siblings of the offender
  • Any other relative or person who is unable to care for themselves, as determined by the Court, and should be considered a member of the family
