File a personal protection order application

The PPO application can be filed in person at any Protection Specialist Centres or Family Protection Centre located in the Family Justice Courts. You may also submit a draft application and the documents online before your visit to the relevant centres.


Attend court mentions

When the summons are accepted by the respondent after the application is made, both the applicant and the respondent must attend a court mention. The event in the court mention will determine how the application will proceed further.

At the court mention, if the respondent does not consent to the application, the court may refer the respondent and the applicant:

  • To attend counselling or family conferences
  • Or provide directions for parties to proceed for a hearing at a later date

File an appeal, if required

After an order is made at the end of the hearing, an appeal to the Family Division of the High Court can be done.

It is crucial to file for a Personal Protection Order if you are experiencing harassment, stalking, threats, or any form of abuse from someone else. A PPO is a legal document, and violating the terms of a PPO can result in criminal charges.
