Personal Protection Orders


Do you need a lawyer to represent you in a Personal Protection Order (“PPO”) trial?

Personal Protection Order applications may result in a trial that is heard before a Magistrate or a District Judge in court. Domestic violence is a thorny subject and the relevant parties will have to adduce evidence in court to prove their respective cases.

We welcome you to have a FREE CONSULTATION (30 minutes) with us to understand how we can assist you in PPO proceedings (applying for or defending).

Our fixed price fees for each stage of contested PPO proceedings is capped at S$6,000 (i.e. the maximum that you will pay for your contested PPO proceedings if it is resolved by mediation is S$6,000).

Do note that the capped fee of S$6,000 is the maximum fee. If the parties agree to settle the matter at any stage of the proceedings, the fee will usually end up being lower.


Reasonable correspondence (letters) with spouse/spouse’s lawyer $350
Court Mentions $150 per mention
Affidavit $1,000
Affidavit-in-Reply $1,000
Written Submissions $1,000
Attendance at PPO Trial $1,500 per day

We offer a free 30-minute consultation to assess your matter. We believe in providing you with a thorough, detailed analysis of your matter. Do note that as our free consultation slots are limited, we adhere strictly to the 30 minutes for these free consultations.

During our consultation, we won't be rushing through the session to get you to sign an engagement letter. We believe in explaining the entire personal protection order procedure in Singapore as well as analyzing your family situation so that we can provide you with a bespoke solution.
