Hi How can I help?

I will read your question and respond

How long has your ex been harassing you? Have you told the police?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
For years and getting worse I'm going to tell them tomorrow

In the interim you must consider taking out a injunction against him in order to prevent him from future and ongoing harassment and threats which can take in many forms.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

You can apply for an ‘injunction’ if you’ve been the victim of domestic abuse. An injunction is a court order that either:

  • protects you or your child from being harmed or threatened by the person who’s abused you - this is called a ‘non-molestation order’

pply by email or post

Follow these steps to apply for an injunction by email or post.

  1. Check if you’re eligible to apply for a non-molestation order or an occupation order.

  2. Download and fill in the application form (form FL401) and make 2 copies.

  3. Write your witness statement telling the court what has happened and asking for the relevant order.

  4. At the bottom of the witness statement write a statement of truth. Use the following words: “I believe that the facts stated in this witness statement are true.” Sign and date the statement of truth.

  5. Download and fill in form C8 if you want to keep your address and telephone number private.

  6. Email or send all the documents to a court which deals with domestic abuse cases - there’s no fee.
