G v G (Ouster: Ex parte Application): CA 1990

An ex parte order was made requiring a wife to vacate the family home immediately and was served on her when she was bringing two of the children of the family home from school.
Held: Lord Donaldson MR: there was no reason why the judge could not have made a non-molestation order in the widest terms which could have been served on the wife at the same time as the inter partes application for an ouster injunction. Butler-Sloss LJ did not consider that the affidavit evidence showed a situation sufficiently grave to come within ‘immediate danger of serious injury or irreparable damage’.
