Injunctions Domestic Abuse
Our solicitors prioritise requests for help in domestic violence situations. Such abuse can be physical, sexual or psychological and may be inflicted by a partner or former partner, relative or child.
We can apply for an injunction to protect you, usually without notice being given to the other party. If you call us by 10:00am, we aim to attend court that afternoon to obtain an emergency order. Legal aid is available for victims of domestic abuse. The eligibility rates are higher than other family cases and you may be eligible for legal aid even if for example you are employed/self-employed subject to you paying a small contribution. The Legal Aid Agency have produced an eligibility calculator which can be found here.
For a confidential discussion call us on 0800 859 5979. Our large team of specialist advisors are able to offer a same day appointment if appropriate.
