Family Law Act
If you are experiencing harassment, violence, verbal or emotional abuse from a partner or ex-partner we may be able to help you apply for a court order which protects you.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, we would usually advise you to obtain an Injunction. There are two types of Injunction, namely a Non-Molestation or Occupation Order.
A Non-Molestation Order is an injunction which can be obtained against an associated person. This Order will prevent the perpetrator from continuing to harass, be violent or abusive to you or your children. This Injunction can also prevent the perpetrator from coming within a certain distance of you, your children and your home. The Court also has the power to prevent the perpetrator from instructing others to harass or be violent or abusive towards you.
