Injunctions & Domestic Violence

Treating each and every case with sensitivity, tailoring a solution that suits you and your specific situation

Injunction Services

Injunctions are court-given orders that prevent an individual from doing certain things. The most common usage of an injunction is when a relationship has broken down and one party is suffering from harassment, threatening behaviour or physical assault (also known as domestic violence).

Domestic violence is incredibly serious, and overcoming such an issue can be difficult, scary and stressful – that’s why it is important that you seek legal advice if you are under threat or being subjected to any form of domestic violence.

When you contact Goodwins Family Law Solicitors, we will clearly explain the options available to you, explaining them simply so you are aware of the possible steps to take. The range of actions include non-molestation orders, or occupation orders which require the spouse to leave the property.

If an order is made by the court, it must be treated very seriously – these orders can be enforced by police if necessary. If you are faced with an application to leave your home or you are subject to any other injunction proceedings, you are likely to require expert advice in advance of any hearing to see where you stand and what options you have.

When might injunctions be necessary?

There are occasions where, on the breakdown of the relationship, one party may decide that they want to try and sell or hide certain assets in an attempt to reduce the available assets for distribution. If this happens, expert legal advice is needed to ensure that you receive what you are entitled to.

Injunctions are also required if a parent tries to remove a child from England or Wales without mutual consent from the other parent. This is also used when there is the threat of violence towards the child or the parent removing the child has refused visitation rights for the other parent.
