What help can a Solicitor provide against Domestic Abuse?

A solicitor can quickly help to get a Court ordered injunction against your abuser. An Injunction instructs someone to stofree consultationp doing something, such as being violent towards you, and can also stop them from coming within a certain distance of you or your home. If your abuser breaches an injunction then they may be arrested or imprisoned, depending on the type of injunction involved.

There are a number of different types of Court orders available and we will advise you on the most suitable one for your circumstances.
