Domestic Violence

Any domestic violence and abuse (or the threat of it) is unacceptable.

The cross-government definition of domestic violence and abuse is:

“Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to:

  • Psychological
  • Physical
  • Sexual
  • Financial
  • Emotional

If necessary we can make an urgent application to the Court on your behalf for a non-molestation and/or occupation order relating to the family home, to protect you and your children. We act for both men and woman in this regard.

Legal Aid is available when making an application to the Court for an Injunction, subject to the merits of your case and financial means.
