Protection from Domestic Abuse
Abuse can come in many forms; physical, emotional, psychological and sexual. At Pearson Solicitors we can offer advice and assistance if you are suffering from abuse, from either a partner or a family member. Warning letters, which often help, can be sent to the abuser and if need be court proceedings can be issued to seek the court’s protection.
There are two main types of protection that you can seek from the court:
- You can apply for a non-molestation order (commonly referred to as an injunction) which will protect you personally and can extend to cover your children if necessary. This order can specify that the other person is not to harass or intimidate you, make threats towards you, contact you in any way or specify that they are not to come near to your property.
- You can apply for an occupation order. This type of order sets out who can live in a property, what rights you have to a property and can enforce property rights. If you need to remain in the property it could exclude the other person or set out restrictions on how you both live in the property if that has to be the short term case.
