Domestic Violence and Abuse: Injunctions

Your need...

You may need help urgently and be in fear. You may be worried that your children are at risk of harm or abduction. You may not know what legal protection you are entitled to.

How we can help...

We can help you make an application to the Court for an injunction order to prevent your partner from contacting you, removing your children from your care or occupying your property. If you are at immediate risk of harm we strongly advise you to contact the police.

You do not need to suffer physical violence to obtain the legal protection of an injunction. Domestic violence and abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, partners or family members can also include:

  • Controlling behaviour which can be a number of acts designed to make someone feel dependent and isolated from support
  • Coercive behaviour which can be assault, threats, humiliation or any abuse used to harm or threaten
  • Psychological abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Emotional abuse

You may suffer one incident or a pattern of incidents. Some people have difficulty identifying that they are suffering from domestic violence. You may have been punished or threatened with punishment for undermining what your family or community believes is the correct code of behaviour.

Our team are experienced in identifying domestic abuse and specialise in making urgent applications for injunctions to protect you and your children. 

Trust us...

We can offer you an emergency appointment and adopt a flexible approach to working with our clients. We communicate clearly without legal jargon. Our specialist solicitors are members of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers.

Please note: We do not have a Legal Aid contract. If you have experienced domestic violence you may be eligible for legal aid and may wish to make enquiries as to eligibility. A list of solicitors offering Legal Aid can be found at www.resolution.org.
