Domestic Violence can take a variety of forms - physical, emotional, financial or sexual. When it occurs, swift and positive action is necessary to prevent repeated occurrences. As well as directly affecting the parties involved it can have huge repercussions on surrounding family, friends, and children.

In certain cases, it is possible to apply to the Court for an injunction prohibiting someone from pestering, intimidating or behaving violently. It may also be possible to obtain a Court Order to have someone removed from a home or prevented from visiting it. Depending on the case injunctions can be issued quickly on an emergency basis by court. Failure to comply with an injunction may be punishable by imprisonment or other sanction depending upon the severity of the non-compliance.
