Through the process of divorce and separation, there is another common situation which can occur and be a part of the divorce and separation process – domestic violence & injunctions. Work with our domestic violence solicitors in Wiltshire today to learn about the process.
A Domestic Violence Injunction can be obtained during divorce proceedings or separately.
There are two types of Domestic Violence Injunction :-
These Orders can be made to protect adults or children from harassment, intimidation or threats of violence from an associated person or someone else instructed by that person to do one or all of those things.
An Occupation Order is an Injunction which relates to property and can determine who is allowed to continue to live in a property in the short term after there has been domestic violence. The Order can exclude a person who owns or has an interest in the property from either part of it or indeed the whole of the property. The Order can also enable a person who has been wrongly excluded or evicted from the property to go back to it.
If you are involved in divorce proceedings and become concerned that your spouse is trying to dispose of valuable property or money to prevent you making a claim against that asset, an emergency application can be made to the Court to prevent the disposal.
