It is important to remember that protection, normally in the form of an injunction, does not just cover situations where there has been actual physical violence.
The reality is that there are many forms of domestic abuse from which you can be protected. If you are the victim of:
- Verbal abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Text message abuse
- Facebook abuse
- Twitter abuse
then you are a victim of domestic abuse and are entitled to be protected from that violence.
Types of Protection
The types of orders that are available fall into 2 main categories :-
- Non- Molestation order
- Occupation Order
Emergency / Urgent Applications
Usually when somebody is the victim of domestic abuse it is necessary to try and seek protection as a matter of urgency. We are able to make urgent applications for a Non-Molestation order or Occupation Order without the other person having any knowledge.
