A woman can file a domestic violence complaint against any person with whom she is/has been in a domestic relationship. This includes:
- Husband/male partner
- Relatives of her husband or male partner, including in-laws, aunts, uncles, etc.
To seek immediate protection from domestic violence, you should file an application with the Court with the help of a Protection Officer or a lawyer.

You can take the help of your lawyer to extend the duration of the order, if you require it.
