The measure to remove the violent spouse is a alternative to prosecution.

Created by the law of 12 December 2005, this measure taken within the framework of violence within the couple allows the public prosecutor to force the perpetrator of violence (both towards his spouse and the children living under their roof) to leave the family home.

Article 41-1,6 ° of the Code of Criminal Procedure allows the prosecutor to prohibit appearing at home but also around the home and may also request a health, social or psychological care.

Note: The spouse or former spouse of the victim is understood in a very broad sense. This also concerns the cohabiting partner or the PACS partner.

A mission of mediation accompanied by a reminder of the law is only possible if the victim has expressly requested it.

In the event of further violence, the public prosecutor will have to consider an appearance on prior admission of guilt ( CRPC ) or prosecute before the tribunal.

When the victims have no income and the rent is paid by the abusive spouse. The law provides that it is up to the latter to continue to pay housing costs.

The public prosecutor will have to specify the modalities of assumption of responsibility for the expenses of housing during a period which it fixes and which cannot exceed six months.

Other measures may be taken by the prosecutor in the context of intimate partner violence, in particular the establishment of the Grand Danger Telephone system.
