Domestic abuse solicitors can provide you with legal advice on obtaining legal aid and applying for an injunction.

Domestic abuse is common and can take many forms including emotional, physical, sexual, financial or psychological abuse. Statistics show 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.

Domestic abuse legal aid

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.

How could David Gray solicitors help?

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.

Applying for an injunction

An injunction is a court order that prevents someone from doing something. If you are at risk from domestic abuse then an injunction can help to protect you. Our specialist domestic abuse team can provide legal advice around applying for an injunction. There are two main types of injunctions available for survivors of domestic abuse:

  • A non-molestation order – protects you or your children from being threatened, harassed or harmed by your abuser or through third parties.
  • An occupation order – sets out who can live in the family home and can prevent.

We work closely with local support organisations to ensure you receive the practical and emotional help you need alongside our legal advice.
