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.
