How We Can Help

We can assist in taking steps to obtain court orders that are designed to protect you from all forms of domestic abuse. These include:

Non-Molestation Order

A non-molestation order is a legal order issued by a court to protect individuals from harassment, threats, violence, or any other form of domestic abuse. It is designed to provide a legal safeguard for victims who are experiencing abuse or harassment from a current or former partner, spouse, family member, or someone with whom they have had a close relationship.

Occupation Order

An occupation order is issued by a court to regulate who can live in a particular property, and it is often associated with domestic violence cases where one party needs protection from another in the same household. or disputes related to shared housing. They are typically issued in conjunction with non-molestation orders to provide comprehensive protection for individuals facing domestic violence or harassment.
