Who Is This Service For?
This service is designed for individuals in France who are victims of domestic or intrafamily violence, including physical, psychological, economic, or sexual violence. It is also applicable to adults threatened with forced marriage.
- 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.
- This does not necessitate a prior criminal complaint.
Process: Our Approach
- Initial consultation to evaluate the situation and collect necessary evidence (e.g., medical certificates, witness testimonies, communication records).
- Filing a request with the "Juge aux affaires familiales" (Judge of Family Affairs) through a detailed written petition.
- 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.
- Representation and assistance during the hearing, which is conducted in a private chamber.
- If applicable, coordination with criminal proceedings for added protection and legal recourse.
