What is an Occupation Order?
An occupation order sets out who has the right to stay at the family home, who can return and who should be excluded and it is issued by the family court under Part IV Family Law Act 1996.
An order does not change the financial ownership of a property. This is normally a short term arrangement, and its duration will depend on your needs. Usually, it will last for six or twelve months. In some circumstances, an Order can also be renewed. Orders can only be made in relation to a property where you both live, have lived or intend to live in.
Non Molestation Orders
Where domestic abuse or violence has occurred, we will usually also apply for a non-molestation order. This is an order to protect the individual from violence and also serious forms of harassment, pestering or any other conduct requiring the intervention of the court. It can include children.
We can explain what this means in further detail at our first meeting.
