Domestic Violence

Domestic violence or abuse is a pattern of controlling and aggressive behaviour. The abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, financial or sexual. There are many organisations who offer practical help and assistance. However if you wish to seek legal protection you should talk to a specialist family lawyer about the range of injunctive remedies available in the family court.

In brief you are able to apply under Part IV of the Family Law Act 1996 for a ‘non-molestation order’ and an ‘occupation order’. A non-molestation order prohibits further abuse and an occupation order can exclude the perpetrator of such abuse from the home for a defined period of time. Breach of a non-molestation order is a criminal offence.

We understand that it can be a daunting and upsetting prospect coming to talk about issues of domestic violence and abuse. Our team of expert family lawyers will adopt a sympathetic, though robust approach and will help to make you feel as comfortable and as relaxed as possible when meeting with us to discuss this difficult issue.

We will also talk to and involve other agencies such as the police and counselors if we believe this would help. We will fully advise you in respect of costs, discuss your options and what outcome you can expect if you decide to make an application to the court.

Our experienced and understanding team are here to help you. We will work with you to ensure the best possible outcome.

We can provide you with a fixed fee for this service so you will know exactly what costs you will need to pay.
