Abstract: Section 60 of the Family Law Act 1996, not yet implemented, provides for rules to be prescribed to allow third parties to apply for non-molestation and occupation orders on behalf of survivors of domestic violence. This paper is based on research carried out for the Lord Chancellor's Department examining the views of service providers on whether the provision should be brought into force and, if so, how third party applications could be taken forward in England and Wales. Particular consideration is given to the views of service providers on the most appropriate bodies to authorize as third party applicants and whether the consent of the domestic violence survivor should be required for an application to be made.
