Domestic Abuse

We'll help to protect you from harm

If you are suffering from domestic abuse and don’t know where to turn, our legal advice can help you and your family get the support and protection that you need.

We know that domestic abuse can be inflicted in all sorts of different ways, many of which are not immediately obvious but all of which can be incredibly painful and distressing. You may have been a victim of physical, sexual or psychological domestic violence, or had threats made which have made you feel unsafe in your own home.

If you have children, it’s likely that they have suffered too, either at the hands of your abuser or through witnessing the pain that has been inflicted on you.

Domestic abuse is a criminal act that ruins lives, and we are here to put a stop to it and quickly ensure that you and your children are safe and fully protected.

With our experience, support and insistence upon total confidentiality, we will do all we can to help you to be free from abuse.

  • We can act quickly to get court orders in place, making it illegal for your abuser to be near you, your family or your property.
  • We can request that you receive police protection against your abuser.
  • We can put you in touch with various other organisations, all dedicated to helping victims of domestic abuse.
  • We can give you all the advice you need, and make sure you are aware of all the options available to you.
  • We can support you in bringing criminal prosecutions against your abuser.

We can give you advice on a wide range of legal orders to help keep you safe, even if the police have previously told you that they cannot take criminal action against your abuser:

  • Non-Molestation Order (Injunction) – This can be put in place to prevent someone from using or threatening violence or from approaching you, your children or your home. If your abuser were to breach the injunction, you can call the police and they will have the power to arrest them immediately.
  • Occupation Orders – This is a way of banning someone from living in your home for a period of time, even if they own the property. Again, the police can arrest the abuser if they breach the Order.
  • Protection from Harassment – This is a way to prevent someone from doing things that make you feel distressed, scared, humiliated or threatened, such as:
    • Unwanted phone calls or visits
    • Stalking
    • Online bullying
    • Verbal abuse
    • Damaging your property

We know how difficult it can be to talk about domestic abuse to others but there’s no need to worry. All our appointments are with friendly, approachable lawyers who will treat your case in the strictest confidence.

Our team of experienced domestic abuse solicitors will give you the legal advice you’ll need and can also help with the practicalities, guiding you through the next steps you will need to take to keep you and your children safe.
