Domestic abuse can include controlling, bullying, threatening, coercive or violent interactions and is not limited to physical behaviour. Domestic abuse can be emotional, physical, sexual, psychological and/or financial control. Some people may experience these unwanted behaviours from a family member, partner or ex-partner.
If you have experienced domestic abuse, it can be very distressing and confusing. There are a number of support options available through legal means that our specialist solicitors can advise you on and support with.
Our specialist team can provide you with legal advice on the best course of action. Our team can support you with making an application to the Court to prevent such behaviours and/or contact from the abuser, including third party contact on behalf of the abuser. The Court order can also include preventing the abuser from coming within a set distance of your home or workplace. In addition to supporting you with making an application to the Court, our experienced team can also represent you in the Court arena where it can be extremely daunting to be on your own. It is possible for an application to be made on notice or without notice to the abuser. Our specialist team will advise you on both types of applications. Our team will always take your individual circumstances into account and offer a confidential service.
Whilst QualitySolicitors Davisons supports the Orange The World Campaign that’s targeted towards ending domestic violence against women and children, men can also be victims of domestic violence. In the last year, an estimated two million women and men have been victim to domestic violence and abuse; around 1.3 million women and 695,000 men. Many victims suffer in silence and often the abuse goes unreported.
A domestic abuse allegation is serious, which is why you should seek legal advice as soon as possible if you have been accused of being a perpetrator and especially if you believe you have been wrongly accused.
