Domestic Abuse and Injunctive Orders

One in four women and one in six men will be affected by domestic abuse during their lives. Many do not know how to deal with this or where to turn for help. There are many charities out there who can provide support and guidance but often more serious action is required whether via the police or via solicitors.

Moving on from domestic violence

Official crime figures reveal that 30% of women are affected by domestic violence at some point in their life. In the past year, 7% of women and 4% of men have been victims of domestic violence.
Domestic abuse happens when one person hurts another in the same family, married or unmarried, with or without children, divorced or separated.

What is a Non-Molestation Order?

There are two main types of injunctions available under Part IV of the Family Law Act 1966

  • A Non-Molestation Order
  • An Occupation Order
