Abuse in Relationships

If you or your children are in danger from a family member, we will work quickly to ensure your safety. We will advise you on what protection order you require from the Court and seek to have it in place as a matter of urgency.

How can we help?

Domestic abuse does not have to involve physical violence; it is any form of behaviour that causes the victim to feel intimidated and bullied. Sometimes the abuse is so bad that the victim has to flee the home or is compelled to take steps to protect themselves or their children from further abuse.  Abuse can also be more subtle and complex such as coercive control and gaslighting. It can be hard to spot the signs of abuse when you are trapped or don’t feel able to break out of the relationship. Understanding your legal options can be overwhelming.

There is always someone available who can talk you through any such issues and can offer an appointment to give advice or just let you know what your options are. Sometimes a warning letter will suffice but some situations are so serious we will need to go to court urgently for protection orders. We have extensive experience of the following:

 

  • Non-molestation Orders
  • Occupation Orders
  • Prohibited Steps Order/Specific Issue Orders in respect of children
  • Forced Marriage Protection Orders

Whilst we understand that it can often take a lot of courage to confront the problem, there is no need to suffer in silence.
