“Domestic violence can affect anyone, but courts have extensive powers to protect victims.”

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence includes not only physical abuse, but harassment, psychological, emotional or sexual harm. It can affect partners in all types of relationships and the courts now have extensive powers to make ‘Non-molestation and occupation orders’.

The court has the power to ‘forbid the abuser from using violence, intimidation or harassment’ (Non-Molestation Order).

The Court also has the power to order the abuser out of the home, or, if they have already left, to remain away from the home. Such orders can be made when the ‘significant harm’ test is satisfied. Such harm can be to you or your children.

In urgent and appropriate cases, these orders can be obtained in a matter of hours.
