Non-molestation Order

Non-molestation Order

A non-molestation order is a type of court order known as an injunction. An injunction is a court order that either:
  1. protects you or your child from being harmed or threatened by the person who’s abused you - this is called a ‘non-molestation order’
  2. decides who can live in the family home or enter the surrounding area - this is called an ‘occupation order’
The person named in the injunction can be arrested if they break it.
If you’re in immediate danger of being abused or have been abused, report it to the police.
You can apply for an injunction online through RCJ Citizens Advice - there’s no fee.
To apply online you’ll need to:
  1. create an online account
  2. explain what happened to you
  3. include the name and address of the person who’s abused you
