Keyworkers will work closely with legal services to ensure safety measures are put into place for the women and their children. This may include liaising with law firms to take out injunctions i.e. non-molestation orders or occupation orders:-
o A non-molestation order is aimed at preventing your partner or ex-partner from using or threatening violence against you or your child, or intimidating, harassing or pestering you, in order to ensure the health, safety and well-being of yourself and your children.
o An occupation order regulates who can live in the family home, and can also restrict your abuser from entering the surrounding area. If you do not feel safe continuing to live with your partner, or if you have left home because of violence, but want to return and exclude your abuser, you may want to apply for an occupation order.
We also assist service users seeking assistance on other legal issues i.e. divorce, assault, immigration, forced marriage, prosecution of perpetrators, contact and residence issues.
