We are committed to helping parents to resolve their disputes in the best possible interests of the children, and to encourage agreements wherever possible.

 

Domestic Violence and Injunctions

If you are subjected to violence or harassment by your partner or a family member, we can provide you with supportive and confidential advice and assistance. You may be able to apply to the family courts for an urgent non-molestation order (an injunction) to prevent the continuing violence or harassment. You may also be able to apply for an occupation order to evict that person from the family home, or prevent him/her from returning to it.
