Injunctions and Occupation Orders

If you’d like to talk to us about injunctions and occupation orders, please call our free legal helpline on freephone 0333 888 0404 for initial guidance, or send an email to us at [email protected]

There are various court orders available if you feel at risk of harm from your ex-partner.  An Occupation Order can for instance be used to exclude someone from a jointly owned property. Or if you are at risk of harassment, harm, violence or threatened by an ex-partner, you may be entitled to protection from an  Injunction to prevent the ex-partner approaching you or coming to your home.  Such orders will not be made lightly by the Court so specialist legal advice is required.  We can prepare your court application and supporting statements, and represent you at court hearings.

Your first step – Specialist advice from our divorce solicitors

It’s important to get legal advice early in the divorce process so you get the right guidance at the right time in order to safeguard your interests. Though it can be complex, our team of specialist solicitors will combine our in-depth knowledge of business law and family law to make the process as stress-free as possible. It is particularly important to make sure the business is correctly valued for divorce purposes. Valuation is a complicated area and we work with experienced independent valuers who understand the issues that arise during a divorce.
