When you receive a non-molestation order, it usually comes as a shock and the first reaction is to go to court and fight the order.

What do I do if I receive a non-molestation order?

Deciding whether to defend a non-molestation order depends on your specific situation. Gather evidence, such as text messages, emails, and witnesses, to dispute the allegations. Prepare a clear and factual witness statement demonstrating that the order is unnecessary or unjustified, and the court will give you an opportunity to present your evidence.

On the other hand, involvement in litigation is a step that should not be taken lightly and there are circumstances in which it may be more advisable to let the matter rest, despite the inevitable distress and disillusionment that such orders will cause. The factors that should be taken into account are the duration of the order, length of the court proceedings, hardship caused to the respondent, and chances of success.

To make an informed decision whether to defend a non-molestation order, consult with Rose & Rose HPLP for personalised advice.
