How did this injunction come to be?
You clearly want contact with him. Why was this injunction imposed?
Yes, but how did they come to discover this?
Since you want contact with him I presume you wouldn't have called the police?
So you did call the police?
I need the information I asked for?
Is this the only time you've done this?
Sorry but I'm not sure what you mean?
You did report this or you did not?
OK. Is this the first time you have done this?
Is this a domestic violence protection notice or a court ordered restraining order?
In that case, there is no realistic point in an appeal.
This will be limited in time and any appeal would take too long to be heard.
If it were a restraining order then that would be different.
I'm afraid the only way to avoid this now is not to make reports to the police. That is not to say that you have to put up with any abuse of course. You just sort it out yourself and then you have control over the situation.
In fairness, the police have to justify how taxpayer's money is being spent and it isn't sensible use of their time to continually attend at the same addresses.
It is just unfortunate for people like you who have never done this before because you get tarred with the same brush as people who do it all the time.
DV notices expire usually after 30 days though. They are just not worth appealing.
The police say that it gives the complainant a period of respite although the real purpose for which they are used is to ensure that regular and repeat accusers face a consequence for continually wasting police time.
It is just unfair for people like you.
But this will be over before you know it and can be avoided for the future.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You are welcome.
All the best.
