Emergency Protection Orders (EPO)

Author: Mock Webware |

Emergency Protection Orders are designed to protect individuals in situations of family violence. Typically, this requires some sort of proof of threats or violence in order to apply for an EPO to be put in place.

Once the EPO is granted it prevents your family member from contacting you and any other family members. This includes your family member not being allowed to come to your place of residence or work.

These kinds of situations require immense sensitivity and the ability to navigate the police and court process. Rame has comprehensive experience dealing with EPOs on both sides. Often EPOs can be resolved with a mutual no-contact order, which is beneficial to both parties. Protecting yourself and your family is always top of Rame’s mind.
