Harassment Protection

The breakdown of a relationship may on some occasions lead to unfortunate and unacceptable behaviour which can cause distress and fear to the victim of such behaviour. Harassment can also be carried out by an individual against another even where there has been no formal relationship.

We have solid experience of acting for individuals who have been subjected to unacceptable harassment and threats. We act swiftly to obtain protection through the family and civil courts and followed by, where necessary, liaising with the police and authorities to enforce and extend the protection obtained in the courts.  Often applications for protection need to be made on an urgent basis and we have extensive experience of obtaining and serving emergency orders.

How we've helped

We acted for an individual who was being harassed and threatened by a former partner. The harassment was carried out over the internet and in person. We were successful in obtaining an order forbidding the former partner from contacting our client, his family or associates. We subsequently worked with the police to enforce a power of arrest as the former partner breached the order. The former partner was subsequently arrested and charged in the Criminal Courts.
