Safety Order and How To Apply

A Safety Order protects the applying party against the threat or use of violence against them by the abusive party. It also protects them if they feel in fear of the abusive party.

A Safety Order is the same as a Protection Order but it can be granted for longer periods. It can be granted for a maximum of five years.

Once granted, if the applying party feels threatened, they can call the Gardai and they will immediately attend at the home and if warranted arrest the party for breach of a Safety Order.

A Safety Order can also be granted to persons of full age residing in mainly non-contractual relationships.

If you have a Protection Order a summons will already have issued for a Safety Order. If not, you can attend with us or attend directly with the Clerk of your local District Court office who will allocate a hearing date and serve the summons on the other party.
