An injunction is a general word used in legal terms to describe an order which prevents a person or an organisation from doing something. A non molestation order is a family law injunction. A non molestation order is an order which is intended to protect an individual from violence or threats of violence by a current or former partner or member of their family. A non molestation order is only available to certain groups of people and includes those who are married or have been married, those who live together or relatives or parents of a child. A non molestation order can be tailored to meet the circumstances of the case but usually will prevent a person from threatening or committing acts of violence, intimidating, pestering or harassing another person and importantly prevents anyone else from being instructed or encouraged by that person to do those things.
