Understanding Harassment and Injunctions

Harassment can take various forms, including physical, verbal, or psychological abuse, online harassment, stalking, or any behaviour that causes fear and distress. When faced with harassment, individuals have the right to seek legal protection through injunctions.

An injunction is a legal order issued by the court that prohibits an individual from certain actions, including contacting, approaching, or harassing another person. There are three primary types of injunctions:

Non-Molestation Order: This type of injunction prevents an individual from molesting, harassing, or intimidating you or your family members.

Occupation Order: An occupation order regulates who can live in the family home and can include exclusion orders, allowing one party to remain in the home while the other is required to leave.

Exclusion Order:  Often used in conjunction with an Occupation Order this removes the offending party from the family home and prevents their return.
