If you have been arrested on suspicion of assaulting your partner with whom you are living but no further action has been taken in relation to criminal charges, the police may nevertheless have served you with a notice requiring you to attend the magistrates court on a specified date. At this hearing, the magistrates will be asked to make a Domestic Violence Protection Order for a period up to 28 days. This order can include a condition which excludes you from living in your home. This may have significant financial consequences for you and can have a disproportionate effect on your life.
