False Domestic Abuse Allegations – what do I do?
If you have been served with court papers notifying you that your partner has applied for an injunction against you and that there is a hearing coming up in the Family Court, it is important that you take advice as soon as possible.
If you do not attend the hearing, there is a risk that an order may be made in your absence. If an order is made, there could be serious consequences if you then inadvertently breach the terms of the order.
The existence of a non-molestation injunction order could have far reaching consequences, particularly if you have children. If you do have children, an order could affect when and where you see your children, so it is important to seek legal advice early.
