Domestic Violence Advice and Support
If you have been affected by domestic violence and are being threatened by an ex-partner or family member then we can help you. You may be in urgent need of an injunction to protect you (known as a “Non-Molestation Order”). You may also need to oust someone from your property by applying to the court for an “Occupation Order”.
It may be that the police will help you, without the need for our involvement. The police have powers to issue court proceedings. It is important that you call the police if you believe you are at immediate risk of harm or if you are being threatened.
You should also be aware that in domestic abuse cases some people will qualify for legal aid. We are not able to offer legal aid at Evans Solicitors. We can discuss your circumstances and advise you on the best course of action for you.
If you have been served with court papers you should contact us so that we can advise you on next steps.
