There will be cases where one needs to consider protection of people who are both associated and non-associated persons. Do you know when to apply and in what situations?
Are you familiar with other forms of personal protection through Stalking Protection Orders, domestic violence protection orders and those available through the Protection from Harassment Act 1997?
