How do I get a non-molestation order?
Your solicitor will complete a court application form and you will need to make a witness statement setting out exactly what has happened and why you need an injunction.
There is an option to prevent your contact details from being made available to the other party, and this is done by filling in a separate form.
Where you believe that you need the order immediately, your solicitor will advise the court that you are seeking an emergency order. Your solicitor will also explain to the court why this is necessary.
In an emergency situation, you will need to attend a hearing shortly after the application has been made at which the court will consider your case. A further hearing will be held that the other party will also attend.
