Marie represented a woman in an application for a non-molestation injunction and occupation order against her former partner, following allegations of violence. There were children involved, also alleged to be at risk. The case additionally involved a fabricated allegation he had made to the Police about Marie’s client, which the Police did not treat as credible.
Despite the application being initially fully opposed by the woman’s former partner, following Marie’s argument, he agreed to the Orders being made at the first hearing. The Court agreed that the children should be considered at risk.
