DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
 

ARE YOU A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

 

Domestic violence does not have to be physical, it can be psychological, sexual, financial, emotional abuse as well as controlling and coercive behaviour.

 

We are able to help you apply to the Court for a Non-Molestation and/or Occupation Order.

 

A Non-Molestation order is an order to prevent the abuser physically abusing, intimidating or harassing the victim or damaging or threatening to damage their property.  If the Court grants a Non-Molestation order and the abuser breaches the order it is a criminal offence and if the abuser is convicted of this, they can be fined or sent to prison. 

 

An Occupation order sets out who can and who cannot live in the family home. 

 

If necessary, an urgent application can be made to the Court.
