Specialist Legal Advice for Domestic Abuse Related Orders
Injunction is a universal term for an order which prevents a person from taking a particular action. There may be occasions when injunctions are needed to protect financial assets, to protect the welfare of a child or to protect victims of abuse. Our Family and Domestic Abuse Solicitors can support you through this process.
Injunctions for Financial Remedy
Although rare, there are times when orders are needed to prevent a partner or former partner from dealing with, moving or hiding money or assets. Our Divorce and Asset Protection Team have the expertise to advise you on the need for an injunction or freezing order and guide you through the application process.
Injunctions for Children
There may be times when orders are needed to ensure that your child’s best interests are met. Parents do not always agree on what is best for their children, in particular with regard to their health, their religion, their school and of course where they should live.
A Prohibited Steps Order is a type of injunction that can limit when certain parental rights and duties can be exercised. For example, an order may be required to prevent a parent from changing the child’s school or taking the child abroad. This order can also prevent one parent from moving away with the children – see our Relocation page for more information on this.
Injunctions for Domestic Violence
The Court can make orders to protect individuals who have been the victim of domestic violence. The family Courts have the ability to make two types of injunctions:
- A Non-Molestation Order- an Order for protection in respect of violence, threats of violence and pestering.
- An Occupation Order- an Order regulating the use of a property which may also include the immediate surrounding area.
Please note that if you are subjected to or at threat of physical violence you should contact the police immediately.
In the event that there has been a recent threat of physical violence and you feel that you are in imminent danger then an emergency application can be made without notice.
