Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I'm just reviewing your question.
Can you tell me a little more about how he was abusive, please? You may be able to apply for a non-molestation and occupation order if you are the victim of an abusive relationship. This would also potentially entitle you to legal aid.
You have, in my view, grounds to apply for the above orders, and to ask that you are granted the right to live in the family home with the girls.
The form to apply is here:
There is no fee for the application.
There is also an explanatory leaflet here which may assist:
The only other thing you can (if you don't go down the non molestation order/ occupation order route) do is apply to court for contact - and the application fee may be waived if you have no income.
Yes - as the judge can hopefully deal with this application at the same time as your court hearing on Friday.
I hope this clarifies things?
If so, please take a second to rate my response with 5 stars as this will credit me for my time.
Thanks and do let me know if you have further questions, follow ups are part of the service, even if you have already taken the time to rate for me.
