What applications can be made to the courts for domestic violence?
f you are a victim of domestic violence, you can apply for a court order:
- Non-Molestation Order: this kind of order prohibits a person from molesting you or a child. Molestation does not just include physical violence, but also harassment and threats.
- Occupation Order: this type of order allows you to occupy a property and restricts the other person’s right to occupy the property.
In an emergency it might be possible to obtain an court order without first informing the other party – known as an “ex-parte” order.
