Peace Orders

A peace order is similar to a domestic violence protective order in that they both require you to be a victim of abuse and they both offer you similar forms of protection from the abuser.  However, if your relationship to the abuser falls under the category for a domestic violence protective order, you would not be eligible for a peace order.
