What protection can the law offer?
An application to the Civil Court under either the Family Law Act 1996 or the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 is commonly referred to as an Injunction. There are three types of Injunctions:
- Protection from Harassment Injunction – will prohibit any harassing behavior towards you.
- Non-molestation Order – forbids a person using or threatening violence and from intimidating, harassing or pestering another person. It has a power of arrest which enables the police to arrest a person who they suspect of breaching an order.
- Occupation Order – regulates the occupation of the family home in order to protect you or your children and can exclude a person otherwise entitled to occupy a property from doing so or from coming within a certain distance of it, or from coming within a defined area.
