Domestic Abuse Solicitors and Domestic Violence Injunction Process 

As specialist family lawyers, we take the time to listen to your needs and help make the unknown clear. With years of experience and knowledge, you can confidently rely on us to guide you through daunting decisions with our full support.

The family courts can make orders called injunctions to stop abusive behaviour and protect you and your children. There are two different types of injunction orders:

  • 1. An occupation order:

This injunction requires the perpetrator to leave your home and keep away from it, allowing you to occupy your home without being threatened, harassed, or assaulted. When the court makes an occupation order it can include a power of arrest which enables the police to arrest the perpetrator if they break the terms of the order.

  • 2. A non-molestation order:

This form of injunction orders the perpetrator to stop actual physical assaults or other sorts of intimidating and upsetting behaviour. Any breach of a non-molestation order is a criminal offence, and they will be arrested.

These orders treated very seriously by the courts and should be treated the same by both the victim and the accused, if breached they can, and will, be enforced by police if necessary. If you are faced with an application to leave your home or you are subject to any other injunction proceedings, you are likely to require expert advice in advance of any hearing to see where you stand and what options you have, we can offer advice and support with these proceedings, offering you clarity and advice.
