This article explores the compelling evidence supporting a non-molestation order in the UK.

Compelling Evidence for a Non-Molestation Order in the UK

  • Police reports

A police report is one of the most compelling forms of evidence that can support a non-molestation order. Police reports can provide detailed information about the nature and extent of the abuse or harassment. They can also provide a record of any incidents that have occurred, including the date, time, and location of the incident. A police report can also serve as a witness statement and provide information about the perpetrator’s behavior, including any threats or acts of violence.

  • Witness statements

Witness statements from family members, friends, or neighbors can provide compelling evidence to support a non-molestation order. Witnesses can provide information about the perpetrator’s behavior, including any acts of violence, threats, or intimidation. Witness statements can also provide information about the victim’s behavior, including any attempts to avoid the perpetrator or seek help.

  • Medical records

Medical records can provide compelling evidence to support a non-molestation order. They can provide information about any injuries or illnesses that have been cause by the perpetrator’s behavior. Medical records can also provide information about any psychological or emotional harm that has been caused by the abuse or harassment.

  • CCTV footage

CC-TV footage can provide compelling evidence to support a non-molestation order. CCTV footage can provide visual evidence of any acts of violence, threats, or intimidation. CCTV footage can also provide information about the perpetrator’s behavior, including any attempts to follow or stalk the victim.

  • Text messages, emails, and social media posts

Text messages, emails, and social media posts can provide compelling evidence to support a non-molestation order.
