Domestic Violence and Domestic Abuse
We take domestic abuse very seriously.
But what is Domestic abuse?
Domestic abuse is when someone who is close to you, for example your spouse or partner, causes you physical or mental, social or financial harm. It can either be just a threat or can be an actual act against you. It can be something that may not be physically harmful to you such as intimidation or controlling behaviour but it can be all part of domestic abuse. It can be something that happens once in a while or it can be something that happens regularly.
Getting legal protection
If you want to get legal protection we can apply to the County Court for an injunction order on your behalf. We can apply to the court for an occupation order on your behalf to have the abuser removed from your home. In our experience an injunction order can provide a victim of abuse breathing space - space for you to feel protected and free so that you can clear your mind and make clear decisions about the future. We can also apply for an occupation order so as to exclude the abuser from the home. Again, this can give you the space to fee free so that you can clear your mind and make decisions on your own about your future.
Our expert domestic abuse solicitor team can advise and guide you. We act with sensitivity and high professional standards in all cases. We listen to your circumstances. After taking instructions from you we advise on the best way forward which in some cases may be simply a letter to your abuser warning them that their behaviour will not be tolerated further and that any further acts of abuse from them will be met with injunction proceedings through the Courts. Or if we think it necessary then we can recommend applying to the Court for an Order to be made by the Judge against your abuser. Every case is different and our experienced solicitor will consider each case circumstance.
All calls are treated in the strictest confidence.
