Injunctions are court orders which instruct a person that they are disallowed from committing a certain act.
There are four common injunctions:
- Non-Molestation Order - which prevents another person from harming you or a child
- Occupational Order - which will indicate who can live in the family home and can direct another person to leave the home
- Common Law (Assault & Trespass Injunctions) - which will prevent somebody coming onto your property without your permission or assaulting you.
- Anti-Harassment Injunctions - which will prevent someone from harassing you (e.g. causing you alarm or distress through nuisance phone calls, threats, stalking, excessive noise etc.).
There are also injunctions created for many problems arising from many diverse situations; both in business and private scenarios.
For example, some injunctions can prevent someone from removing important or sensitive documents, disposing of property or spending money. Other injunctions can prevent something being published about you that you do not like or using information or assets belonging to you.
If the injunction is broken then you can go to Court to apply for your antagonist to be sent to prison; known as "committal proceedings". You will need to have evidence that the injunction has been breached. You may also be able to apply for a 'Warrant of Arrest' that will allow your antagonist to be arrested and brought before the Court.
