What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence need not necessarily be the infliction of physical injury but may be in the form of harassment, threats, verbal abuse or bullying from someone close.
We can advise on a way forward, which may include police involvement, a warning letter to the perpetrator, application for an injunction order, defending an application or considering the use of undertakings. This means that quite often matters can be agreed with the person accused making a solemn promise to the Court not to do it again.
There are usually two types of injunction order that we assist with, namely an Occupation Order or Non-Molestation Order depending on your situation.
If you are making the application, quite often you can ask the Court to order that the other person pays your costs. We will discuss this with you in more detail during the initial consultation.
When you contact the Family Law team, you’ll be drawing on the experience and expertise of one of the most established teams in the region.
