I Am A Victim of Domestic Violence. What Do I Do Next?
Are you terrified of your partner and don’t know which way to turn?
There are various steps we can take to protect you. These include getting an injunction which is a court order that requires someone to do (or not to do) something. There are different types of injunctions including non-molestation orders which tell the person in question not to hit, threaten, harass or pester you, as well as occupation orders dealing with who is entitled to occupy your home.
When you contact us, we will make recommendations for how we can make sure you (and your family) are safe and protected. Seeking legal advice early is vital and we will help you every step of the way, no matter how challenging the road ahead may seem.
