Non Molestation Order Case Study

12th April 2016

Client Situation

Ms. J was living with her partner for four years. She left him a year before she contacted us. They had a child together who was 3 years old.

During their relationship and after they separated, Ms J's partner had been violent towards her, intimidated her and verbally abused her. She was a victim of domestic violence.

Although Ms J had ended the relationship with her ex-partner, he was named as a joint tenant on their housing association tenancy agreement.

Ms J wanted to make sure that her ex-partner could not enter her home or abuse her any more. The Police were not in a position to help Ms J.

How We Helped

An urgent application was made to the Family Court for an Occupation Order, along with a Non molestation Order and Ms J. went to Court for a hearing the next day.

The Court made a Non molestation Order to protect Ms J. from her ex-partner.

The Non-molestation Order stopped him from:

  • being on the road where she lived, being on the road where their child attended school
  • communicating with her except through a third party
  • harassing, intimidating or pestering her
  • damaging any of her property.

In addition, the Court also made an Occupation Order. This Court order stopped her ex-partner from entering the property, even though he was still on the tenancy agreement.

Both of these Court orders were made without Ms J's ex-partner being at Court.

The Outcome

Both the Non molestation Order and the Occupation Order were made final to last a year. This meant that Ms J was protected and her child was also protected at school and at home.
