Domestic violence injunctions

Suffering from domestic abuse and violence within a relationship, or from other family members, is sadly all too common.

But MVLLP’s highly-experienced solicitors can help stop domestic violence from happening and put the necessary legal protection in place to keep you safe.

What is considered to be ‘domestic violence’?

Domestic violence is any threatening behaviour, abuse, sexual abuse or violence that occurs between adults who are, or have been, in a relationship, or between family members, irrespective of gender or sexuality.

The violence can take the form of any behaviour which is meant to frighten or hurt. It can range from verbal abuse and harassment, such as pestering phone calls, to physical violence, including assault and battery, and sexual abuse.

Whatever the form of the abuse, it usually forms part of a pattern of behaviour which is abusive and controlling in which the abuser seeks to assert power over their victim.

What are Domestic Violence Injunctions?

Domestic Violence Injunctions are civil court orders which can be used to stop abuse from occurring and keep you safe from further harm. They are also known as ‘Non-Molestation Orders’ or ‘Restraint Orders’.

Applications for the injunctions are made to a court, and in urgent cases domestic violence solicitors can make the applications quickly without the other party knowing.
