Below are some common FAQs regarding domestic abuse.

What is a Non-Molestation Order?

A Non-Molestation Order is a Court Order which is used to protect individuals and their children from domestic abuse. The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 defines domestic abuse as not just physical violence, but also emotional, coercive or controlling, and economic abuse.

The Act recognises children as victims if they see, hear, or otherwise experience the effects of abuse. A Non-Molestation Order prohibits the recipient from acting in a manner that constitutes domestic abuse. This includes: Using or threatening violence towards the Applicant or any relevant children. Intimidating, harassing, or pestering the Applicant or any relevant children. Contacting the Applicant or any relevant children directly or indirectly. Damaging, attempt to damage or threatening to damage the family home or any of the Applicant’s possessions. Asking another person to do any of the above.

A Non-Molestation Order can also ban a person from coming within a specified distance of certain places where the Applicant or their children are likely to be such as the family home or schools in which relevant children attend.

What is an Occupation Order?

An Occupation Order is a Court Order stating who can live in a property or any particular part of it. The Court can also decide on matters such as the payment of rent or mortgage and other bills concerning the property. Occupation Orders are extremely draconian; therefore, the Court will only grant them in exceptional circumstances.

“Overall, I just want to say a few things as a testimonial to pass on to the partners. I have dealt with a number of solicitors in my time both in my working environment and on personal matters, but the service given by yourself has been exemplary. This is for a number of reasons, firstly my dealings with yourself have always been handled with the upmost professionalism. I also have never felt at any point the need to chase you as you always have been managing every transition and process with an attention to detail that I could not fault. This has been an extremely difficult time for me but the feeling of reliability in your service has helped me greatly through the process. I will be recommending your service and the firm to others in the future.”
