What protection will a non-molestation order give me?

The respondent will be prevented from carrying out the behaviour described in the non-molestation order. Usually, the order is worded widely – for example, preventing the respondent from ‘harassing, pestering or molesting’ the applicant. It is now a criminal offence to breach a non-molestation order. Therefore, if the respondent does do something that constitutes pestering, harassing or molesting you, he will be arrested immediately. However, this is only the case if the respondent knows of the order. For this reason, if an order is granted ‘without notice’, it is important that it is served on the respondent as soon as possible.
