Non-molestation Orders and Occupation Orders are two basic types of injunctions the court can make under the Family Law Act 1996. Contact us for legal advice now.

A non-molestation order is a court order (injunction) that protects you or your child from being harmed or threatened by the person who has abused you. It is a civil order obtained by a victim of domestic abuse from a Judge (or Magistrate) through the Family Court.

A person can apply for a non-molestation order if he/she has experienced violence, abuse or threatening behaviour from another person who is an 'associated person'.

An associated person is usually either a relative or a person with whom you have had a close personal relationship, whether or not you have married or cohabited.

Occupation Orders

An occupation order is an order that someone must leave the home where you live, allow you to return there if you have already left, or is only allowed to occupy certain parts of the home.

The duration of the order depends upon the circumstances of your case. The court will make different orders depending on what rights you have to the property.

For example, whether you are a lodger or an owner-occupier - and the relationship between you and the other person (known as the Respondent). It will also consider the needs of any children.

An occupation order regulates who can live in the family home and can also restrict your abuser from entering the surrounding area. If you do not feel safe continuing to live with your partner, or if you have left home because of violence, but want to return and exclude your abuser, you may want to apply for an occupation order.

Our specialist team of family law solicitors can provide legal advice and help you need with your family matter.
