Thank you. So I would advise, if possible, to seek legal representation. However I can give some advice on this matter. Firstly, you can contest the orders on the position that they are "baseless" and/or without evidence, i.e. if the person seeking the order does not have any evidence to back up what they are saying and you are of the position that the claim is vexatious. When going to court you have a few options, you can draft a statement setting out your version of events and providing evidence, for example, texts, emails, bank statements and anything else that backs up your position that the claim is baseless and has no merit. Alternatively, you can give the court an undertaking, this is the legal term, for what is basically a "promise" to the court. i.e. that you will not contact the person or attempt to near their property etc. If there are children involved in this dispute, the granting of the order can make it difficult to facilitate contact, however it is not a basis to prohibit contact with a child. If the order is granted, you will want to read it carefully as there may an arrest clause attached, meaning that if you were to breach the order you could be. arrested and charged. If possible I would advise seeking legal representation.
