Protection From Domestic Violence
Where a relationship has broken down and you are in fear of your safety because of a partner’s violent temperament, the law can protect you and we can act quickly and efficiently.
If there has been violence in your relationship and you anticipate further harm, we can apply to the Court for an immediate and urgent Interdict Order and sometimes an Exclusion Order which temporarily suspends a partner’s occupancy rights. Said orders can also benefit from attachments of a power of arrest intended to provide further deterrent and security for the victim.
We can offer Legal Aid for these Court proceedings subject to financial eligibility.
