Becket Chambers’ Family Law barristers have extensive experience of dealing with injunctions for all eventualities, and several are available for emergency injunctions when action is needed out of hours.

When you might need an injunction

Injunctions might be stand-alone or they might be needed as part of a more wide-reaching case.

They might, for example, be needed in order to ensure your or your children’s immediate safety or long-term welfare. If you are divorcing, they may be needed in relation to matrimonial finance – to ensure fair division of property and assets.

You may also need an injunction if you are making allegations of domestic violence against your partner and need to have them kept away from you. Or you may need to apply for an injunction requiring them to leave the family home. Injunctions are also frequently bound up with protecting a child (and parent) in cases where they are considered to be at risk.


It is also possible that you may need an Emergency Non-Molestation Injunction or Application for Occupation Orders under the Family Law Act 1996 in a matrimonial finance or cohabitation case.

Becket Chambers Family Law barristers are available on a Direct Access basis.

Legal Aid

If you receive Legal Aid, you cannot use the Direct Public Access scheme and go direct to a barrister for an injunction. You will need to use a solicitor. However, if you don’t want to apply for Legal Aid, or have been unable to find a solicitor who will act in Legal Aid cases, and are able to fund the legal action yourself, you can go straight to a barrister on a Direct Access basis.
