The issue of domestic violence is very difficult and can pose grave difficulties for those suffering – be that you, your children and/or wider family. This type of abuse is often not limited to just physical abuse. Thankfully, society as a whole, is now more alert to the different forms of domestic abuse, which include physical, emotional, psychological, financial, harassment (and controlling behaviour) and sexual abuse. We appreciate that domestic violence can arise in all types of circumstances and is not necessarily restricted to a particular gender, age, race, etc.
Emergency Applications – Non-Molestation Injunction & Occupation Orders
If you are suffering from domestic violence, we can assist you by confidentially advising you and assisting you to achieve injunctions seeking to prevent the risk of you and your children suffering any further harm.
We can consider your specific circumstances and seek an emergency order for a non-molestation injunction and/or occupation order. The aim of these orders would be to prevent the perpetrator from being violent, threatening violence, harassing, pestering and intimidating you. It would also, where applicable, seek to prevent the perpetrator from returning to the family home and allowing you to reside there in the meanwhile. The aim of such action would be to protect you, your children and assist you to focus on other attached issues, i.e. financial and child arrangement issues. Thereafter, we can assist you to focus on the related issues of divorce & separation, child arrangements and financial matters.
