Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse, whether physical or psychological, is unacceptable in any relationship, and no one should ever be made to feel scared or threatened in their own home. But we know that simply walking away from a violent partner isn’t always an option - particularly if children are involved or you don’t have access to your own finances. That’s why it’s vital to talk to someone you trust - a legal expert who can provide sympathetic but practical advice; explaining your options and giving you balanced and considered advice to enable you to have the confidence to make a decision that is right for you.

Domestic abuse can take many forms including:

  • Violence and physical abuse;
  • Emotional and verbal abuse (for example, humiliation or name-calling);
  • Harassment;
  • Sexual abuse;
  • Intimidation; &
  • Threats (against you or your children)

In whichever way you are experiencing it, it’s important to ask for help as soon as possible. We can move swiftly to apply to the court for an order that will prevent your partner from intimidating, harassing or threatening you.  It may also be possible to obtain an order excluding your partner from returning to the family home.  

If you feel that you are in an abusive relationship, pick up the phone and talk to us. It’s the first step to taking control of your situation so call us for a confidential chat:
