Domestic abuse happens when a partner, spouse or other person close to you causes you physical, mental, emotional or financial damage.
As of March 2015, a new law now also classifies repeated controlling or coercive behaviour as abuse. In these cases, you may need the support of a specialist solicitor in order to help you deal with the situation. Our family team can help you obtain court orders to prohibit further abuse.
Whilst Legal Aid may be available in limited circumstances, unfortunately we are unable to offer this service. However due to the quality of service we provide, and the experience we have in the field, we are often instructed in these matters as our clients want somebody to represent them who they can trust to act in their best interests.
We can often advise you as to what options you have available to you, and what action to take, during our initial fixed price consultation of £75.00 plus VAT
