Injunctions

An injunction is a court order used to compel or prevent a party to do certain things. Injunctions are often used in an emergency, and therefore it is essential that you get the help of a solicitor without any delay. Our expert family solicitors understand how delicate and complicated family law matters can be. To speak to one of our expert solicitors regarding an injunction please call us on 0161 835 2446.

Under the Family Law Act 1996 there are two main types of injunctions:

  • A non-molestation order – order to prevent someone from being violent, threatening violence, harassing or intimidating you.
