Domestic violence solicitors

Nobody wants to talk about domestic violence. Unfortunately, this includes victims. When your home is no longer safe and you live in fear, it can be hard to know where to turn, or what to do. At Talbots Law, our priority is your safety. When clients are brave enough to come to our domestic violence solicitors for help, we stop at nothing to ensure the suffering is put to a stop.

Domestic abuse comes in many forms. It may start small, but progressively get worse over time.

What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence is a blanket term, covering any form of abuse that a person has suffered at the hands of a member of family or someone close. It knows no gender, or age. Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence: from elderly citizens to young children.

In certain cases, people who suffer through domestic abuse have been doing so for so long that they simply accept the situation, and allow it to continue.

The abuse could be physical. It could be psychological. Often, it’s both. If you or someone you know is experiencing this, it’s vital you speak to a specialist domestic violence solicitor as soon as possible.

What can the Courts do?

The Courts will protect you and your family by granting an injunction order against the perpetrator.

If the Courts grant a Non-Molestation order, this will protect you from harassment, violence or violent behaviour and threats. The courts will attach ‘powers of arrest’, which means if the terms of the order aren’t kept, the perpetrator will be arrested.

If the Courts grant an Occupation order, the perpetrator will be banned from the family home and restricted from going within a certain distance of it. By breaching these terms, the perpetrator is guilty of contempt to the Court, and the police can therefore place them under arrest and the perpetrator will face up to 5 years imprisonment.

With an injunction order in place, you can start to become comfortable once more in your home environment, a place that should always be a safe zone.
