Injunctions in personal protection cases

Available from: 15/07/2024

When dealing with injunction proceedings, and particularly after successfully securing a non-molestation and/or occupation order, family practitioners must understand the civil and criminal penalties in the event of a breach, and the procedures for enforcement. Even though the family practitioner may not deal with the criminal proceedings, they must still be able to advise the client as to what can be done in the criminal context.
