Are you a victim of spousal abuse?
If you are a victim of ongoing domestic abuse, and your safety is in immediate danger, please contact the police for assistance at 999. When dealing with domestic abuse, it is imperative to know your rights and seek legal help to protect yourself and your loved ones. At JCP Law we are well versed in laws surrounding domestic abuse and can advise you based on your individual circumstances.
One such legal option is to apply for a Personal Protection Order [PPO] through the courts. The courts must be satisfied that such an order is required to prevent any further harm to the victim(s). If the perpetrator breaches the PPO and causes harm to the victim(s) again, you must lodge a police report. The perpetrator could then be arrested and charged for the offense.
