Domestic Violence & Abuse
We believe that you should never be afraid at home or in a relationship, though it can be very difficult to acknowledge and confront our abuser.
If you have experienced domestic violence or any other form of abuse and don’t feel safe, we can help. Our specialist solicitors will help you get the protection and guidance you need, whether that’s medical care, therapy or alternate living arrangements so you can get your own space, contact us for expert legal advice and assistance today.
Domestic violence is defined by the Crown Prosecution Service as “any incident of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of their gender or sexuality.”
If you have been abused by someone who isn’t and has not been an intimate partner or family member, please refer to our Physical Abuse and Assault team. While there are many different forms of domestic abuse – such as psychological, physical, sexual, financial and emotional abuse – you deserve to be safe, whatever your individual circumstances.
Our Domestic Abuse specialists can help you get the advice and support you need, whether that’s applying for court proceedings, restraining orders, separation and other forms of legal protection. To learn more, get some free advice or request our services, please call us on 01706 711 176 today or fill out out form and one of our expert solicitors will get back to you as soon as possible.
