Protect Yourself from Abuse

Secure legal protection from abusive or nuisance behaviour

As relationships break down, it isn’t unusual for problematic behaviour to take place. In some cases, this might be annoying harassment. In others, this might be physical or emotional abuse. In any case, you can apply to the Sheriff Court for an interdict to prevent the offending party from carrying out a particular behaviour or being in a certain place.

For example, an ex-partner may be coming to your home unannounced to harass you. Maybe the family of an ex-partner is sending threatening or abusive messages on social media or by text. It might even be that a neighbour is acting antisocially or aggressively. In any case, the court can provide robust legal protection.

At Kee Solicitors, our team has helped countless clients to protect themselves from a wide variety of unacceptable behaviours. We will be behind you every step of the way, making sure you enjoy the peace of mind that comes with sound legal advice in the face of a stressful situation. So to start the process today, give us a call on 0141 611 1191.

Interdict

What is an Interdict?

Your local Sheriff Court can grant an Interdict. When issues, it legally requires a party to stop acting in a way that causes you fear, alarm or distress. This includes stopping a party from coming to a specific location.

The range of behaviours covered by an interdict is broad and almost limitless. In addition, the behaviour might not be considered distressing by the average person. However, given certain contexts specific to you, it could be regarded as unreasonable.

For example, the court can grant an interdict to ensure an ex-partner who has entered your home and physically assaulted or intimidated you can be told not to return by the court. At the same time, the court can also stop someone from sending abusive messages online.

What if the Risk is Imminent?

It can take some time for the court to grant an interdict as both parties involved and the court itself prepares for the case. However, in many cases, you may be under an immediate threat, and any delay in granting the interdict could be incredibly costly.

An emergency court order is a process in which an Interdict can be processed and granted by the court on the very same day. Exactly how long the process takes will depend on how much of an emergency the situation is and how busy the Sheriff Court is at that time. However, our solicitors will do everything required to make the procedure as smooth and quick as possible.
