Non molestation Order which will prevent any threatening or violent behaviour towards you. This order can be against:

The Law pertaining to Non Molestation Orders can be found at Section 42 of Family
Law Act 1996. Any breach of the order is a criminal offence and can be dealt with by a fine or up to 5 years imprisonment. An initial and or minor breach may well not attract a custodial sentence. However, it is likely that a persistent or serious breaches may lead to a custodial sentence.
A victim of domestic abuse, be it violence or harassment, can report the matter to
the police. If the allegation is pursued to court then the Crown Prosecution Service may request a restraining order against the defendant.

Again any breach of a restraining order is a criminal offence and our Criminal Department would be more than happy to assist you in a matter such as the above.
