Domestic Abuse and Harassment
Domestic abuse is common. The police receive one call every minute about it, even though it is estimated that the majority of abuse goes unreported. It happens in close relationships between people of all ages, gender, sexual orientation, class and culture. Acknowledging that a family member is abusing you is one of the hardest steps you can take. We know that you may be frightened, confused and anxious and asking for help can be difficult and daunting.
Our award winning team of Resolution Accredited Specialists will be on your side. We are here to advise you about the best way to protect yourself and any children, and to represent you in any urgent court applications that may be necessary. We will also advise you about related issues concerning property and finances.
Legal aid is available if you are experiencing domestic abuse and are financially eligible. We will always assess your eligibility for legal aid, and help you to get the necessary information to enable us to apply for funding on your behalf.
We work closely with local support organisations to ensure you receive the practical and emotional help you need alongside our legal advice.
