Domestic Abuse and Harassment

Our team is highly experienced in dealing with matters of harassment and domestic abuse which arise in the context of a family dispute. We have the necessary expertise and support from our colleagues in other teams to advise and assist those suffering from domestic abuse and harassment and those who are accused of abusive or harassing behaviour.

Combatting domestic abuse and harassment does not necessarily mean contacting the police, a prosecution and criminal convictions. There are a number of remedies available in the civil and family courts which can afford protection to you without resorting to criminal proceedings.

Domestic abuse concerns itself not only with your immediate spouse or partner, but also wider members of your family and household. If you are suffering abuse or harassment from someone who is not your partner or spouse, there are remedies available.

We have a dedicated team of lawyers on-hand and well-equipped to give advice and assistance in an emergency situation. In some cases, court action such as an occupation order (for the home) and a non-molestation order will be appropriate.  We will assist you in deciding on the right option to fit your circumstances, providing a range of levels of support from advising you in the background and “off the record” to full support and representation at court.

We have an emergency telephone line for those occasions when you need urgent advice or assistance. We also have colleagues in our criminal team who routinely deal with domestic violence arrests and prosecutions and also provide advice to victims of domestic abuse.

We can also assist those who have been accused of domestic abuse and may have been served with court orders.

Our dispute resolution team can also assist with civil injunctions for harassment should you decide that you do not wish to involve the police.

We also have excellent links with professionals who can provide you with emotional and therapeutic support as you navigate the range of legal options available to you and set about moving forward.
