A Personal Protection Order (PPO) is a powerful legal tool designed to protect individuals who are victims of domestic violence in Singapore. The PPO is an Order issued by the Court in order to safeguard a family member who has been subjected to violence, abuse, or harassment within their own household.
As per the definition of Domestic Violence or Family Violence outlined in Section 64 of the Women’s Charter, such acts are deemed to have been committed in the following instances:
If you are a victim of domestic violence, you may feel hesitant about applying for a PPO, fearing that it will only escalate the situation. However, a PPO acts as a deterrent against your abusive spouse, making it a criminal offense if they violate the order. If your spouse breaches the order, you can report the matter to the police and provide evidence. With sufficient evidence, your spouse can be arrested and charged with a criminal offense, ensuring the safety and protection of yourself and your family.

This order would make it an offence if your spouse commits the acts that has been restricted in the PPO. If your spouse breaches the order, you can report the matter to the Police. If there is sufficient evidence gathered, your spouse can be arrested and charged with a criminal offence. This acts as a deterrent for the “violent” spouse to commit any rash acts, and to keep the family safe.
