  1. With the presence of the Judiciary, Singaporeans will have confidence that the courts will judge people fairly.
  2. One example of the Judiciary interpreting and applying the law passed by the Legislature is through providing relevant information and taking action to protect Singaporeans in the event of family violence.
  3. The Family Justice Courts provide guidelines on what is defined as family violence, who can apply for a Personal Protection Order (PPO), how to apply as well as the actions that can be taken by the courts.
  4. A PPO will be granted if the court is satisfied that family violence has been committed or is likely to be committed against the applicant, and the PPO is necessary for the applicant’s protection. If the applicant receives the PPO, the court can take action such as to prevent or restrict a person from entering the applicant’s house or part of the house.
