Summary/Abstract: Within the scope of Law No. 6284, it is possible to take a protective cautionary decision with regard to the persons who are protected and a preventive cautionary decision with regard to the perpetrator of violence. The followings are the persons protected within the scope of this Law; the women, the children, the family members and the victims of stalking who have been subject to the violence or at the risk of violence. The followings are the authorities that can take a cautionary decision; the judge of family court, the administrative chiefs and law enforcement officers. The judge of family court can take both protective and preventive cautionary decisions, the administrative chiefs can only take a protective cautionary decision. In cases where delay is considered to be risky, the law enforcement officers can take some of the the protective cautionary decisions identified within this Law which can be taken by the administrative chiefs and some of the preventive cautionary decisions which can be taken the judge. The cautionary decision can be taken for the victims and perpetrators of violence within the scope of this Law upon request or ex officio. The cautionary decision can be taken for a six month period at most initially. No evidence or report providing violence is required in order to take a cautionary decision. The fact that the cautionary decision haven’t been pronounced or notified to those concerned does not constitute an impediment to implement the decision. With regard to the perpetrator of violence who acts contrary to the requirements of the preventive cautionary decision, the preventive imprisonment is ruled by a judicial decision even if the act constitutes crime. In each recurring action contrary to the requirements of the cautionary decision, the period of the preventive imprisonment is increased. But the total duration of the preventive imprisonment shall not exceed six months. The judge has no discretion with respect to decide on the preventive imprisonment in the event of violation of the cautionary decision. In order to decide on the preventive imprisonment, the cautionary decision must be pronounced or notified to the perpetrator of violence including the legal warning stating that in case of acting contrary to it the preventive imprisonment in respect to him will be issued. The cautionary decisions and decisions regarding to the preventive imprisonment may be appealed to the family court by the relevant persons. The decisions on appeal are final. In this paper, it is aimed to examine and evaluate the issues of making and implementing the cautionary decisions, acting contrary to the cautionary decisions, appealing against the cautionary decisions and the decisions regarding to the preventive imprisonment by making use of relevant legislation, scientific studies and judicial decisions, besides addressing and offering solutions to the problems encountered.
