Domestic Violence

One incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute. If you are a victim and need assistance we are here to provide urgent advice and the support you require. We will sensitively guide you through the process every step of the way and refer you to third parties who are able to offer you support and security. We can provide a warning letter on the same day or apply for an emergency court order should this be required. We can also make an application to extend an order to include the protection of any children from the relationship.

Domestic violence does not just include physical violence but also includes controlling or coercive behaviour towards you, financial control over you and harassment of you. In addition to providing you with protection by way of family court orders such behaviour can amount to a criminal offence resulting in the perpetrator’s arrest and subsequent conviction.

We can provide advice on non-molestation orders which will prevent further violence, abuse or harassment of you and could also order a person not to attend within a certain distance of your home.

We can provide advice on occupation orders which are used to regulate who should live in the family home or who can return to the property or any part of it should this be required.

Your may also be the victim of harassment if you are experiencing behaviour from your ex-partner or a third party which makes you feel distressed, humiliated or threatened and these could include such conduct as unwanted phone calls, stalking, verbal abuse or threats etc.

Often victims may feel afraid to speak out due to fear but rest assured that we offer an exceptional service in providing you with the right guidance and we offer court representation if any such applications are necessary.
