Non-Molestation Injunctions and Occupational Orders in relation to COVID-19

Posted : 27th March 2020

It is essential that the Court continues to meet the needs of those needing protection during the National Public Health Crisis.

Non-molestation injunction applications will be heard by Skype or by telephone.

At the conclusion of the hearing the Court will draw any orders and will send them to the relevant police force.  Ordinarily the Court will make such orders to last for 6 or 12 months subject to the right of the respondent to ask the Court to reconsider the order.

The Court will list a return date within 14 days when the respondent only need attend by telephone or by Skype. If the respondent fails to notify the court or, having done so, fails to make themselves available at the time of the hearing, the Court will continue the injunction orders.

If the respondent attends the hearing and wish to challenge any orders made without notice the court will fix a further remote hearing for both parties to attend by Skype or by telephone when further directions will be given.
