Domestic Violence Information Note 4

Date:06.05.2020

Please see our new information note on Domestic Violence.

It is important to note that court ordered relief from domestic violence can be secured while Covid-19 restrictions are in place. Further, restrictions on movement do not apply to a person escaping from a risk of harm or seeking to access essential services. In other words, the 2km rule (now 5km) will not apply to you if you are experiencing domestic violence.

In this note we have set out the following in brief:

• The practicalities – getting help and support

• The Law and Domestic Violence – who can apply for what orders and the effect of different orders

• Applying for relief from the Court
