Types of protection available
A Non-Molestation Order:
This is a protective injunction that can be obtained urgently and without giving notice to the perpetrator. This order is available if you and/or your children are suffering from domestic violence or threatened violence and harassment.
Once this Order is granted by the Court, any attempted breach by the perpetrator will be subject to an order for arrest.
An Occupation Order:
This Order will seek to protect you from a perpetrator you live with. If you are granted this Order, the perpetrator will be banned from entering your home.
Injunctive Orders hold a lot of power to protect the victim of domestic violence and require technical evidence to be presented to the Court to obtain them.
