Application for non-molestation injunction

Marie represented the Mother in an application for a non-molestation injunction due to domestic abuse, which she successfully obtained.

She also agreed an interim child arrangements order with her ex-partner in relation to the children, as he had issued an application for a child arrangements order.

A third party was to do handovers, however the Father breached the injunction and was convicted of those breaches. At the FHDRA the case was listed for a fact-finding hearing to determine the allegations of domestic abuse and the Father was warned about any further breaches. In the meantime contact was to continue, supervised, as before, so that the Mother did not have to come into contact with her ex-partner.

The Father, somewhat unusually, argued that there was no need for an injunction (despite having breached it). The Court did not agree and the order continued as before.
