Exclusion orders

This factsheet tells you more about exclusion orders; what they are, how to get one, and what to do if your partner/ex-partner breaks an order. You can apply for an exclusion order if your spouse or partner has harmed you, or is threatening to harm you or your children. You can apply for an exclusion order even if you had to leave your home because of the abuse, and are currently living elsewhere, but you will need to apply within two years of leaving.
