Hi, thank you for your message. Welcome, my name is***** am very sorry you are experiencing this and I hope I can help you today. Can I confirm why did you have to leave the property?
Hi, thank you for your message. I am very sorry to hear about your situation. Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on starting therapy. I can understand it is a difficult situation for you to be in. I would advise that you continue the therapy as long as is needed as this may help you show that you have changed and that you are ready to move back into the property. This will also ensure the safety of everyone that you live with. If there is currently a court order against you, you will not be able to return to the property until the order has expired. Normally in these circumstances there may be a restraining order against. . A restraining order is made by the criminal court to prevent a person from contacting or pursuing a course of conduct with another person. The order is designed to protect the person named from crime against an individual and they can be made on conviction or acquittal of any criminal offence. Any person convicted or acquitted (found innocent or not proven) of a criminal offence can be made subject of a restraining order. You can read more about restraining orders here:https://www.russellrussell.co.uk/advice-for-you/criminal-law/restraining-orders
I would advise that you instruct a solicitor in your area to represent you and help you make an application to give you access to your property. It will be important that you show that your circumstances have changed. The fact that you are in therapy is good and may help your case.
