Domestic violence solicitors Leeds 

Domestic violence is defined as: "any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality". 
 
There are two types of orders that can be made by the court to protect a victim of domestic violence these are :- 
 
Non-molestation Orders - This prevents someone from being violent or threatening violence against you or your child. It also includes intimidation, harassment, or pestering. Breaching this order is now a criminal offence. 
 
Occupation Orders - This order relates to who can live in the family home and can also restrict access to the surrounding area as well. If the abuser breaks this order then they will only be arrested if a power of arrest document was lodged with the occupation order.
