The courts can make a variety of orders to help keep you and your children safe and to allow you to remain safely in your home. They include:
- Non molestation orders, to try to stop violence, threats and harassing behaviour
- Occupation orders, to sort out who can stay in the family home and to keep the violent person away from your home
- Restraining orders, as part of sentencing in criminal proceedings, to protect you from violence, threats and harassment
- Forced marriage protection orders, to try to stop someone from being forced into marriage or to protect someone who has been forced into marriage
