Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Is there any domestic violence, risk of violence or any threats or abuse from him towards her?
- How old is your grandson and when was the last time the father had contact with him?
Thank you. For her to be able to get a non-molestation order (which is an injunction), she will need to prove that there is an imminent risk to her safety. If there have been no recent incidents of threats or violence she will find it difficult to persuade a judge that an order is necessary, especially if he is out of contact.
In the circumstances, I would suggest that if he contacts, or attempts to contact her for her to write a formal warning letter to him requesting that he does not contact her and in the event that he breaches the warning letter and she feels at risk she can then apply to court under form FL401 to her local family court for a non-molestation order.
You should also be aware that if she is in immediate risk she should call the police who are the first port of call in such circumstances and can immediately assist.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
