Are you or a loved one suffering from domestic abuse?

Our dedicated team of specialist solicitors are able to support and help victims of domestic abuse and their children to get the protection that they need from their partners, ex-partners or other family members.

What is domestic abuse?

Domestic abuse can take a number of forms, such as:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Harassment
  • Threats
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Emotional and Mental Abuse

What kind of protection can the law offer from domestic abuse?

You may also be able to obtain protection from the Courts to prevent the abuser from coming near you or to force them to vacate the home. These orders are dealt with under The Family Law Act 1996 and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

These Acts give the Court powers to grant two orders:

  • Non-Molestation Order – This prevents the abuser from harming you or your child(ren). In some cases the Court can attach a Power of Arrest, this means the abuser is automatically arrested should they breach the terms of the Order. Our expert team have helped over 500 victims of abuse secure non-molestation orders against violent partners.
  • Occupation Order – This Order indicates who can live in the family home and order the other person to leave the property.
