Occupation Orders

Along with non-molestation orders victims of domestic violence can also apply for an occupation order by satisfying the court that they (or any relevant child) are at risk of significant harm due to the conduct of their partner.  This type of order can remove a party from the family home and will say who can live there. Other restrictions can also be put in place to afford the necessary protection such as excluding the other party from entering the surrounding area.

If you do not feel safe living with the your partner or you have left because of violence or intimidation and want to return without the Respondent being there, then Ashmans Solicitors can help you apply for an Occupation Order
