Injunctions

Injunction Solicitor in Cheshire, Manchester, Altrincham, Lymm, Knutsford & Wilmslow

Type of injunction order

Sometimes it is necessary to apply to the court for immediate protection following a divorce. An injunction is a court order that requires someone to do, or not to do something.

If you are going through a relationship breakdown, and believe you require an injunction, please get in touch today, or call me on 0161 509 6241. As an experienced divorce lawyer, I can ensure you receive bespoke care every step of the way.

There are two types of injunctions commonly available:

Non–molestation order

A non – molestation order is aimed at preventing a person from:

  • using or threatening violence
  • making threats, pestering or harassment, for example, sending abusive letters or making repeated calls.

A non-molestation order can be obtained by any “associated” person which includes, but is not limited to, current or former spouses, cohabitees, partners and relatives. A power of arrest is often attached which means that if the person breaches a term of the order, the police can be called and the person will be arrested even without a specific criminal offence having been committed.

Occupation orders

An occupation order regulates who can live in the home and can also restrict a person entering the surrounding area.
Occupation orders are used when a person does not feel safe to continue to live with their partner. The family court also has the power to make orders for the payment of outgoings on the home.
