As unpleasant as the thought may be, a huge percentage of people across Australia have to deal with domestic and family violence. These are never acceptable, but fortunately, there are numerous actions you can take to protect yourself.
One thing you could do is apply for a restraining order for the person who has been violent against you. In short, a restraining order prevents the specified person from coming within a certain distance of you and anyone else named in it, providing a level of protection for you.
Below, we’ve outlined five reasons why you should consider applying for a restraining order if you’re suffering through family or domestic violence.
