Restraining Orders

A restraining order comes into play when a defendant has been convicted or broken an injunction. This is usually a domestic violence injunction and, depending on the type, means that the police may have the power to arrest your abuser if he or she breaks the terms of the injunction. The main injunctions which, if broken, allow the police to arrest are a non-molestation order which prevents someone from hassling, interfering with you or assaulting you or an occupation order which can keep someone away from your home or decides who lives there.
