A PPO is an order given by the family court in Singapore. Its purpose is to protect a spouse suffering from family violence.
Family violence is defined under section 64 of the Women’s Charter (Chapter 353) as:
No, it can also be psychological abuse such as intimidation, threatening behaviour, harassment, mocking, controlling, confining, or restricting a person from free movement. The list is not exhaustive.
Your lawyer will apply to the family court to prevent further instances of family violence. If the court finds that on the balance of probability that family violence has been committed or is likely to be committed, they will make an order to protect the complainant.
If the order is breached, you can report the matter to the police. If the police have sufficient evidence, the offender can be arrested and charged with the offence.
