We will respond quickly to requests for help in cases of domestic violence. The violence may be physical, sexual or psychological. It may be inflicted by anyone with whom you are in a domestic relationship with, or have been in the past – for example, your spouse, partner, or child. We will discuss your needs and consider how to protect you.
An application for an injunction may be made to the court so that your abuser is prohibited from coming near you. As well as obtaining legal protection for you, we can give legal advice in relation to your children and their protection, the family home and rights of occupation, and legal issues. You may also want to consider whether and how contact should take place, if at all with the abusive partner and we can advise on those issues as well.
However, in an emergency please contact the Police without delay.
