From our friendly divorce and family law team
Suffering domestic abuse, or seeing a relative or loved one experience abuse in the home can be an unpleasant and even terrifying ordeal.
Domestic abuse is an issue which can affect people of both sexes, from all walks of life and every type of background. It is not just partners or ex-partners who can experience domestic violence; it can affect parents, children, and other family members too.
Our expert domestic violence solicitors are passionate about assisting people who experience domestic abuse and are on hand to help at what can often be a very traumatic time.
Domestic abuse is not just limited to violence and can include any of the following:
- Controlling behaviour, including controlling your finances
- Sexual violence
- Coercive behaviour
- Emotional abuse
- Psychological abuse
Whether you require protection by obtaining a non-molestation order or an occupation order, our expert domestic abuse solicitor team can advise and guide you. If it becomes necessary for you to attend court, we can make arrangements for you to attend court in safety.
Legal Aid is often available to people who wish to obtain legal advice about domestic violence issues and our team can advise whether legal aid is available in your case.
Our specialist legal team can advise you, whether you want an initial appointment to discuss your options, if you need to make an urgent court application for an injunction (a non-molestation order to protect you and/or your children from harm), or if you need an occupation order to ensure your ex-partner does not return to live in your home or does not approach it.
Sensitive and professional legal advice
Anyone can be a victim of violence, regardless of their age or gender. Domestic violence is a term which describes any situation where one or more people harm someone that they have a relationship with. Domestic violence does not necessarily take place exclusively within the home of the victim or the perpetrator.
Elderly people and young children can be particularly vulnerable to domestic violence and they may not be able to defend themselves from their attacker. The specialist domestic violence solicitors at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors are trained to deal with delicate issues surrounding domestic violence cases in a sensitive and professional manner.
In any situation where you are suffering from domestic violence or you know or suspect a family member, friend or relative is suffering from domestic violence, it is important that you seek advice from a professional domestic violence solicitor.
Our domestic violence team has helped many people who have been in situations where they have suffered from abuse to get the legal protection they need.
