In that case, you can apply for an injunction against any person who has harassed or stalked you or put you in fear of violence by deliberately causing you distress. Injunctions can prohibit such a person from behaving in a certain way. The orders must be reasonable and relevant to the harassment she has experienced. If you will apply for an injunction you will be the claimant and the stalker/abuser will be the defendant.
An injunction might include orders like:
The defendant is forbidden from coming within 200 meters of the home of the claimant
The defendant is forbidden from communicating with the claimant directly or indirectly
The defendant is forbidden from harassing, intimidating, or pestering the claimant
You can make an application for an injunction in the county court or in the High Court, but the county court is usually more appropriate. To apply for an injunction you will need to complete an application form N16A.
This is the form that she can use: Form N16A
