An occupation order is a legal order that decides who can live in the family home or parts of it after a relationship breakdown. It can also set rules about who can come near the home. This order is usually sought when there are concerns about safety or when one person needs to stay in the home for their well-being.

The main purpose of an occupation order is to protect individuals from harm and ensure they have a safe place to live. It can also include terms about who pays the rent or mortgage and who is responsible for maintaining the home. The court decides the terms based on what is fair and necessary for everyone involved.
