Domestic Abuse, Harrasment & Stalking
It can be difficult to leave a relationship, even an abusive one, due to commitments to children or financial reasons. If you're in this position (whether you're married or not) you'll be glad to know, legal help is available.
By applying for an injunction on your behalf, we can protect you and your children quickly. If necessary an order can be sought within hours of your first visit to our specialist team and your former partner doesn’t always have to be told in advance of your application to the court. An injunction is a court order that tells your former partner what they can or cannot do and which can provide for their arrest if the order is broken. The court can make orders to stop violent and threatening behaviour towards you and your children. It can also remove your former partner from your home and prevent them from coming back.
The solicitors in our Family Law team who work in this area have years of experience and can tell you immediately what options may be open to you and how you can fund any proceedings. We have extensive, well established links with public agencies enabling us to obtain outside support for you if necessary.
