Q & A – What is a non molestation order?

A Non-Molestation Order is a type of court order that is designed to protect someone from harassment or abuse. It can be used in situations where a person is being harassed, threatened, or intimidated by another person, and can provide legal protection and support.

The Non-Molestation Order prohibits the person named in the order (the “respondent”) from engaging in any behavior that is deemed to be “molestation” of the person who applied for the order (the “applicant”). This can include physical violence, verbal abuse, harassment, or any other behavior that is intended to intimidate or control the applicant.

The Non-Molestation Order can also prohibit the respondent from contacting or approaching the applicant, and may impose other conditions, such as requiring the respondent to stay away from the applicant’s home or workplace.

If the respondent breaches the terms of the Non-Molestation Order, they can be arrested and charged with a criminal offense.

To obtain a Non-Molestation Order, the applicant must provide evidence of the harassment or abuse, and must demonstrate that they are in need of protection. A solicitor or family law specialist can provide advice and guidance on the process of obtaining a Non-Molestation Order, and can help you take steps to protect yourself from harassment or abuse.
