An Injunction is a court order that prevents someone from doing something that the court decides is imminent and will cause harm. If you are a victim of domestic violence or are suffering emotional or mental abuse from your partner or ex-partner, Nayyars Solicitors can apply to the court on your behalf to prevent this abuse from continuing any further.
The types of order available fall into two main categories:
- Non-molestation/harassment order – which prevents someone from using or threatening violence against their former partner or their child, or intimidating, harassing or pestering them.
- Occupation order – this order determines who can live at the family home and can also restrict the abuser from entering the specified area of their former partner.
Both a non-molestation/harassment and an occupation order can be granted with a power of arrest attached, and this power can be exercised if the abuser does not follow the conditions of the order.
