How Can I Obtain a Restraining Order against Somebody?
The present process of getting a restraining order can be stressful and trying, but it may also be necessary. An injunction is a court order that requires that somebody has to do, or not do, something. If this case is of a violent or threatening behaviour, there are two major types of injunctions that provide protection to victims and these are:

• Non-molestation orders
• Occupation orders

A non-molestation order in Yorkshire prohibits an abuser/stalker, from coming anywhere inside of a certain distance of the victim or potential victim. This is commonly used in cases of domestic abuse and separation. Whereas an occupation order will give details on who is allowed to live in a shared home. This may declare that one or other of the parties must leave the home, at least for a stated period of time, until a more permanent agreement has been settled.

Imminent Danger and Protection
There are two different kinds of thought when it comes down to the nature and scope of a restraining order.

1. The first one is protection against harassment
2. While the other is an order of protection.

The differences between them may seem confusing, so experts agree that you should consult with legal services in Yorkshire, prior to seeking a restraining order.

Should you believe you are in imminent danger of any type of bodily harm from someone you know, you should call 999. The responding officer will assist you through the required process of how to get a restraining order. If things are indeed critical, you should stay with family, friends or get to a domestic violence shelter, where people will know about the correct process for obtaining the order.

A Detailed Report
Normally, getting a temporary restraining order begins with filing out a claim at the nearest police station. Officers there will give you some forms to fill out, that will provide them with your complete identification, contact information, and a detailed report of the incident which prompted you to take such an action. You will then be asked for any other corroborating evidence of harassment, threats or bodily harm.

Try to take anything like photographs of injuries, copies/texts/emails of threatening communications or any official incident reports and provide as much contact information on the offender as is possible.

Getting it Put Into Place
When you have filled out all of the necessary forms and handed in the evidence, the case will then go to court. A judge will then deal with your appeal for a restraining order and if convinced enough that a restraining order is immediately required, the judge will then issue a temporary restraining order. This type of order is normally valid for a short time period, usually about a fortnight or so. The court will then provide you with a hearing date in which the temporary order can then be extended for much longer, all depending on the case.

In such a case, always count on legal professionals to get the best in expert advice and protection.
