Exceptions to apply for a protection order?


I am wondering if anyone could give me clear instructions as mentioned as the subject. As a matter of fact I am aware of that a protection order only will be granted to victims those who live under the same roof or sharing anything common between both parties.

In my case my in-laws and our family share nothing in common except slab which is our floor. . As my lawyers opinion it is better to have a protection order and our attempt got rejected having got none in common to share.
Anyone been granted a protection order having same circumstance as mine? If so base on what grounds?

Thanks in advance

Ten years of suffocation under in-law abuse - what to do?

I met my Mr. Right THE most handsome Man :) in abroad where we worked together. We got married in my country and welcomed our first child there. We 3 came to Mauritius (my husband home) with all our hopes after liquidizing all my properties. His family kept asking us to come home and our little one was less than 5 month old at that time.

We lived with my in-laws. Had lots of rules and customs to follow. I had to compromise clothing, food, religion I obeyed all most all of their rules hoping someday we will built our nest and move. My husband started working and I stayed with the child. They wanted me to speak English and I had no chance to learn Creole nor French. My kid finally became fluent in creole at the age of 6. My mother-in law had many dispute with neighbors and first day of arrival she labeled whom I must talk. So simply had to stay inside.

They were verbally and physically abusive but I never said a word to my husband nor police. We hardly had a chance to go out. Whenever he got a gap we both together started constructing our nest top of my in-laws house where he had applied building and construction permit.

Within less than a year we moved up to our partially built house.Life was full of love and joy. I forgot the pain they gave. Meeting the ends with a bank loan his income was not suffice. I couldn't find a job not knowing the language. So we left to work overseas with the kid after 3 years. They have started to use my house and haven't paid utility bills. 3 years of earning We returned home. Father-in-law had passed away few month before our arrival.

We finished the rest of the construction obeying my mother-in-law strict rules. My husband got a better a break in abroad soon we finished the house. When my husband away she said we have money, buy a land and move out. Lots of disputes lies she spreaded within the family. She stopped family visiting us.

We had no idea my husband had received only authorization to build not a contact. I got an attorney letter to vacate the house within 2 month, saying that she built it and house given to us for free of rent. my lawyer stopped her attempt by sending all our proof documents. Now they want us to vacate the house and agree to pay what we spent on constructions. We haven't kept all bills and masons we paid without written voucher. Me and my husband together done possible construction work in order to save labor cost.

My worse nightmare began after that. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are working for police. He broke our property several times and physically and verbally abused me and my little girl. Whenever I seek police help to advice them all attempt were wasted. So far I have not done any declaration. They speak creole to police who came I understood none but my kid says they lies to police denied their crimes. In the end police shouting at me that I quarrel when ever my husband away. Which is other way around. They have done so many false cases against me which is baseless. Summon yet to receive.

They make constant noise knocking our floor, sometimes car horn and some vibrating system. We kept changing bedrooms other methods to absorb sounds, (fan on, music on, floor filled with stuff, ear plugs) but merely we sleep per day. Kid started to sleep in the school. Each time they knock child poop or pee on pant. Nuisance noise 24/24 hours. I am pregnant now and its a shame I wet the bed in sleep and bleed. I go to bed at different times. Noise was that loud my stomachache so sever that times I thought I will have a miscarriage.

I have gone to CDU, family protection, Court Manager many more places, so far no luck. Bottom line, what they want -----our house. I have no family here nor any trustworthy friend. They are dominating the whole neighborhood (police-family) neighbors talk to me when they are not around. Our life is in danger. I lost my faith in god. We pray daily. I lost hope on justice system. My husband doesn't want to loose his house so does the kid. During this struggling time my pregnancy has turned me more helpless.

Has anyone got similar situations how they overcome such situations. Any advice appreciate.
