We have experience in taking urgent action to ensure you and, if applicable, your children have the protection you need by way of obtaining injunctions.
These can include non-molestation orders, which are designed to protect you from violence, threats or harassment from your partner by prohibiting certain behaviours such as your partner coming near you or communicating with you.
If you are still living together, it may also be possible to seek an occupation order, which is an order that regulates the occupation of a property; for example, by prohibiting your partner from residing there. We have the expertise to guide you on the careful judgement that must be made in deciding whether to pursue such applications and, if you do, we can support you every step of the way through the legal processes needed to obtain such orders from the courts.
We also understand that if you have been in an abusive relationship then the usual challenges of relationship breakdown, such as the arrangements for your children, resolving financial matters and divorce can be even more difficult. We have the skills and experience in these circumstances to ensure you move forward on all issues in the best way possible for you and your family.
