Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Sorry for the delay. Do you mean a restraining order?
But consequent upon a prosecution for a criminal offence?
Thank you. You can get a restraining order even if acquitted but not until the conclusion of the case and never stand alone. The criminal courts are not available for the purposes of injunctions only. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
1 No, like I said, even if acquitted there can be a restraining order.
3 It might well make them feel safer. It is really a case of whether or not it is workable. It could stop contact but it couldn't stop them seeing you.
If the court thinks it is unworkable then it shouldn't be imposed.
Yes, they can make false allegations. CCTV should protect from that though
I'm not sure what you mean?
Yes, they could do that. The point of CCTV would be to disprove any actual false allegations.
It isn't necessarily irrelevant but you need to get it through the bad character gateways which is a high test.
Yes, sometimes. That is the best chance here really.
There is a general duty on all courts not to impose orders that are a nonsense. If you can't be prevented from speaking to each other then an RO won't work.
No problem and all the best.
