If you have been the victim of domestic abuse, it is important that you not only you seek legal counsel, but also protection for yourself and loved ones.
The term “domestic abuse” has been left open to wide interpretation. It alludes to any “incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence, or abuse”. It includes (but is not limited to), psychological, physical, sexual, financial and emotional abuse.
A non-molestation order can keep you safe. Indeed, the Family Law Act 1996 gives you the right to seek an order prohibiting your abuser from contacting or being around you or your children.
While the court can order them not to come within certain distances of your property with an exclusion clause, an order requiring them to leave permanently can only come through as part of an occupation order.
