If you’re in a relationship that isn’t working for you, either because you feel threatened or are with a violent or abusive partner, it can be difficult to know where to turn to for help – but it’s important not to suffer in silence. Asking for help is the first step to resolving the situation. We’ve got people you can talk to in complete confidence. We understand the feelings and concerns you have and make it our priority to support and help you through this difficult time. Domestic abuse, whether physical or psychological, is unacceptable in any relationship and no one should ever be made to feel scared or threatened in their own home. But we know that simply walking away from a violent partner isn’t always an option – particularly if children are involved or you don’t have access to your own finances. That’s why it’s vital to talk to someone you trust – a legal expert who can provide sympathetic but practical advice; explaining your options and helping you put an end to domestic abuse.

We work quickly to understand your unique situation and make your safety our priority. If you are in immediate danger we can take swift action and, where necessary, we obtain court orders to protect you and your family from the abusive partner. You can talk to us in complete confidence. We’ll discuss your options and what outcome you would like as well as clearly explaining the ways in which the law can protect you from domestic violence. As well as providing legal advice, we can put you in touch with a range of organisations who can provide additional help and support. We keep you informed at every stage, explaining everything in straightforward terms and taking the right legal steps to protect you and your family. Domestic violence can take many different forms but in whatever way you are experiencing it, it’s important to ask for help as soon as possible.

In these cases, you may be entitled to legal aid, as your partner’s income is not taken into account. If you feel that you are in an abusive relationship, pick up the phone and talk to us. It’s the first step to taking control of your situation so call us for a free and confidential chat.
