Domestic Violence

Advice Regarding Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse does not just have to be physical – it can be in the form of harassment or intimidation.  At Hopkins Law, we are experienced in providing information and assistance on these matters.

Our family team are very experienced with domestic abuse cases and provide expert, reassuring and friendly legal advice, whatever your circumstances.

Confidential Advice

We provide support in total confidence and will offer advice as to the legal remedies available, so you can make an educated decision about the next steps to take. Initial letters can be sent or if needed, further action can be taken.

Domestic Abuse

Court Orders

We can apply for court orders to protect you from domestic abuse and harassment from your family, spouse or former partner. These can be in the form of different types of injunctions to prevent or allow something to take place.

A non molestation order can be made to prevent further violence, or harassment taking place – this can be made with or without an occupation order, which defines who may or may not remain in a home, and who will be responsible for the cost of that home.

Support When You Need It

Legal Aid

There is no longer a court fee to issue the application, and depending on your income, you may be eligible for Legal Aid to fund the costs for the applications.

Following a meeting, we will be able to establish if you are able to receive Legal Aid.

How Can We Help You?

We also offer consultations in Welsh and French.

Applying for various court orders can be extremely stressful for any individual, especially for me, regarding my difficult personal circumstances at the time. However, when appointing Sally, ALL the stress and worry were immediately taken away. I was able to relax & have faith in her for the entirety of the court application process. Forever grateful for getting the job done so quickly & efficiently.

I just wanted to say a very special thank you to you. You have been so amazing and helpful the past 18 months getting me through such a hard time. I remember coming to you in January 2020, being an absolute state and you have been nothing but kind to me. 
I wish you all the best and thank you. You’ll never know how your kindness helped.

Michelle Jones Testimonial

I have previously emailed about how amazing Sally was during my divorce which settled in December of last year.
Following a recent issue with my ex husband not abiding by the agreement reached in relation to our daughter’s university accommodation I had to call upon her help again and just wanted to take the time to say how fantastic she has been.
Sally is truly an asset to your firm, professional yet personable and just a wonderful person to deal with when facing testing times.
I have always had the utmost faith and confidence in her and her advice and she has taken so much pressure away from me (and my daughter) over the last 2.5 years.
I cannot thank her enough and in a world where we’re all too quick to point out errors feel it’s important to commend those who go above and beyond, of which she is such a person.
I’m sure you already know this about her but I just wanted to say thank you once again. She’s a star and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone finding themselves in the position I have been in.
I am more than happy for my comments to be shared/used. Thank you Sally, hopefully this will now be the end of it (again), but I wouldn’t hesitate to either recommend her or return should the need ever arise.
