There is protection available through the Family and County Courts in respect of violence or threats of violence against spouses, partners or children. The law makes provision for an injunction against the party causing harm. There is an ability, based on the evidence presented, to make an application to the Court without the other party attending if there is an immediate danger or fear that knowledge of the proceedings would cause harm.
The Judge will make a decision based on the statement of the person who is in need and brought the application to Court. The likelihood is that another Hearing will be set for a future date when the alleged aggressor will need to attend to put forward why an Order against them should not be made.
We can advise you as to the best course of action to protect yourself and your family in such circumstances and the likelihood of successfully obtaining a Non-Molestation Order or Occupation Order in order to protect your family and the family home.
We understand that discussions of this nature are personal and distressing to all parties involved. We offer a friendly, empathetic ear and will provide you with a common sense approach to the options that you have available.
