Personal protection orders – what options do you have?
Relationship difficulties and breakdowns are a sad reality of modern life. Difficulties can arise in any relationship - with your spouse or partner, your ex, children, colleague, even your flatmate. Tragically, relationship breakdowns can sometimes involve actual or threatened violence. At such times, some people “lose their cool”, while others routinely use intimidation or violence to control another person. Occasionally, one person thinks they may gain an advantage by untruthfully alleging violence by another person. If you find yourself in such a situation, can you get help? Maybe someone claims you have been violent towards them and has sought a restraining order against you. What do you need to do?
