Unfortunately situations can arise in life when you have no alternative but to apply to the court for an order directing another party to do or refrain from doing specific acts.
Most commonly this arises in the context of families, noisy neighbours/boundary disputes and someone harassing you or behaving in a threatening or violent manner towards you.
There are also injunctions in place that can prevent someone publishing material about you against your will.
We have an outstanding record for successfully obtaining non-molestation orders and injunction orders under the Protection from Harassment (Northern Ireland) Order 1997.
A Non-molestation order is aimed at preventing your partner or ex-partner from using or threatening violence against you.
An Occupation Order controls who can live in the family home and can restrict your partner from entering the surrounding area.
You may be eligible to apply for a non-molestation order if you are or have been married to each other, you are or have been in a civil partnership with each other; you are co-habitants or former co-habitants; you live or have lived in the same household; you are relatives; or you have a child together.

This Order applies when the person seeking protection does not have a domestic family relationship with the other party.
There must be two separate incidents of harassment and the other party does not have to physically hurt you.
