It is always recommended that you consult with a local solicitor for specific legal information. You may receive a phone call request which is from the site, not me, and you may choose to ignore this request.
Please be patient with me as I am generally assisting multiple customers at once and this is an email service, but will I will review your question and respond to you as soon as I can, as your question is very important to me. I hope that I can help you resolve your issue today.
As a victim of domestic violence you can apply for a non-molestation order and occupation order from the family court at short notice if the need is urgent. This could be by way of a without notice hearing.
If you are applying for an occupation order only, the court would list it as an on notice hearing and it would take a few weeks to get a court date as both sides need to be given the opportunity to present evidence.
The form to apply is here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-fl401-application-for-a-non-molestation-order-occupation-order
There is no cost to apply.
