A Safety Order is when the court instructs your abusive partner or ex to stop being violent or making threats of violence.
If your partner or ex is living with you, they do not have to leave the home.
If they are not living with you, the Safety Order bans them from watching or being near your home, following or communicating (including electronically e.g. over phone, email, messages) with you or a dependent person such as a child.
A Safety Order can last up to 5 years.
