Domestic violence injunctions: non-molestation and occupation orders
More and more women are finding that they cannot access legal representation and are turning to professionals in the VAWG sector for support through the family courts. This half day course aims to equip professionals with the skills and knowledge to support to women who are applying for domestic violence injunctions without a lawyer.
We will explain the law and step-by-step procedure relevant to non-molestation orders and occupation orders including completing application forms, what happens at court and more.
