Domestic Violence in South Africa & Method to Obtain a Protection Order

Domestic violenceWhat is the purpose of a protection order?

  • A protection order is a court order that prevents a person, the offender in the situation, from committing certain acts of domestic violence in a domestic relationship as defined in the domestic violence act 116 of 1998.
  • An interim protection order is temporarily issued by the court, usually on the same day when an application is made, where there is a probable chance of domestic violence or further acts of domestic violence being committed, before the final protection order is issued upon a return date.
  • The order contains terms and conditions that must be complied with, which will be specified by the party applying for the protection order for example, a spouse may be ordered to avoid contacting the applicant via sms, telephone call or email, abusing the applicant verbally or physically or otherwise not to enter the applicant’s place of residence or employment.
