To be eligible for an injunction you must be an “associated person” meaning that you and your abuser are connected with each other in at least one of a list of ways:: If you are eligible:
- Download and fill in the application form  and make two copies.
- Download and fill form C8  if you want to keep your address and telephone number private.
- Deliver or send all documents to a court which deals with domestic violence cases.
- If you are under 16 you will need permission from the High Court. If 16-17 you’ll need to appoint a “litigation friend” to represent you, usually a parent, family member or close friend.
- After you have applied you must arrange for the person you are applying against to be told about the application (unless you are applying “without notice”). You will be given a “Notice of Proceedings” which tells you when to appear in court.
- If you need an interpreter, you should ask for one when you make your application. The interpreter can translate but not represent you or give legal advice.
