Domestic Abuse does not necessarily have to be physical violence, this can take place in a variety of forms, including financial and emotional. It is important to act swiftly and positively when it does occur in order to prevent repeated occurrences.
You may find that the abuse is so bad that you are required to flee your home and forced to take steps to protect yourself and your children. It is also normal, if you find yourself unable to stand up for yourself and have the courage do something to contact solicitors. We are here to help.
We understand how difficult situations involving domestic violence can be, and therefore how imperative it is to obtain the necessary protection for yourself and your children at the earliest opportunity. For that reason, if you require help urgently, we will prepare and file an application at court for a non-molestation order the same day if possible to obtain the necessary protection. The non-molestation order is to prevent you and children from being harassed, intimidated, pestered or threatened with violence or use of violence. This can also prevent the abuser from contacting you. Breaching this order is a criminal offence, punishable with a fine or imprisonment or both.
We can also seek an occupation order, which will prevent the abuser from returning or attempting enter the home. The consequences of breaching this order can be the same of as the non-molestation order.
