Service Details

Restraining Orders

This service is available across France

Who Is This Service For?

A restraining order in France may be requested by victims of domestic or intrafamily violence, including physical, psychological, economic, or sexual violence. It is also applicable to adults threatened with forced marriage.

Who Is This Service For?


  • To qualify for a restraining order, known as an "ordonnance de protection," the applicant must demonstrate the existence of violence or a serious threat, endangering them or, potentially, their children. 
  • Issuance of a restraining order by the Court does not require a prior criminal complaint.

Process: Our Approach

  1. Initial consultation to evaluate the situation and collect necessary evidence (e.g., medical certificates, witness testimonies, communication records).
  2. Filing a request with the "Juge aux affaires familiales" (Judge of Family Affairs) through a detailed written petition.
  3. Ensuring quick and effective service, as the judge must render a decision within a short timeframe, typically six days after the hearing date is set.
  4. Representation and assistance during the hearing, which is conducted in a private chamber.
  5. If applicable, coordination with criminal proceedings for added protection and legal recourse.
