The Impact of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can have a hugely negative impact on any relationships, causing the breakup of families and it is important that steps are taken to end any violence as soon as possible. If you are the victim of violence, we understand that you are likely in an incredibly tense and difficult situation, and know that it may be hard to open up about what is happening. However, we are experts in this field and can provide the legal guidance you need at such a challenging time. We know that domestic violence can affect you both physically and emotionally, causing psychological scars that can last a long time.

You can rest assured that we will treat your case with the sensitivity and respect it deserves. It may be that you still live with an abusive partner and are worried for your safety; we can advise you on how to deal with the situation and, if necessary, can help to ensure your dealings with us remain unknown to your partner during the early stages.

Domestic violence can directly and indirectly affect your life in many different ways, and can impact the life of any children you have. If it leads to the breakdown of your relationship, this can be particularly difficult in the short-term, but ultimately the right decision in the long-term. In such instances, we are here to provide the support and guidance you need, offering our legal expertise to help you.

Court Orders

We are able to advise you on various court orders to ensure you are given the best possible protection for a particular situation. These include:

  • Non-molestation order

This involves a person being restrained from using or threatening violence to an adult or child, and also prevents a person from encouraging other people to use violence against others.

  • Occupation order

This order determines who can live in the family home and whether a person may need to leave the home for a period of time.  The terms of the order may prevent a person from entering a home altogether or restrict them from entering certain parts of the property. The order can prevent a person coming within a certain distance of the family home.

We are able to advise on how to apply for these orders and represent you in court.
