Domestic violence

Domestic Violence is a distinct problem within a relationship which is a separate difficulty in itself. If you are a victim of domestic violence then you need support and protection.

Domestic Violence is defined as:-

"Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality."

Domestic abuse, whether physical or psychological, is unacceptable in any relationship and no one should ever be made to feel scared or threatened within a relationship. However, simply walking away from a violent partner isn’t always easy. We can offer sympathetic but practical advice; explaining your options and helping you put an end to domestic abuse.

In many instances the first way to obtain protection is to call the police.

However, there are occasions where you might need further help, support and assistance in order to obtain the protection that you need. We can help you to obtain orders from the court which prevent a violent partner from continuing to use violence and/or which exclude that violent partner from your home.

If you are the victim of domestic violence you may be eligible for help towards your legal costs from the government funding scheme known as Legal Aid. We are happy to consider whether you are eligible and to signpost you to the appropriate resources in relation to you obtaining help with the funding from Legal Aid. 


If you need further individual advice please call us on 0845 482 0641 and we can discuss your problems in more detail
