The aim of any injunction is to protect the applicant from harassment, such as from an ex partner or other family member. The order is a warning to the offender that their behaviour is unacceptable and that further legal action may be taken if they continue harassing the applicant. As such, injunctions are a powerful asset in protecting victims and their children from abusive or threatening ex partners.
There are two types of injunction:
- A Non-Molestation Order – this forbids someone from being violent or threatening violence against you. The order will typically say that the named person must never intimidate, harass or otherwise pester you.
- An Occupation Order – this order determines who can have access to the family home. An occupation order can force someone to leave your home, can allow you to return home if you have left, or can forbid someone from accessing certain areas of your home.
