Explores the recent enactment of two pieces of legislation: the Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Act 2011 which makes it a criminal offence to breach any interdict that contains a power of arrest, and the Forced Marriage etc (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Act 2011, which creates the “forced marriage protection order”, breach of which is a criminal offence. The interplay between these two Acts and the new Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 is subject to some analysis

Keywords:   Domestic abuse, Domestic interdicts, Powers of arrest, Forced marriages, Forced marriage protection orders
