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.

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.

I have known Rhian Howells for over 5 years and always find her to be approachable, honest and reliable.
Rhian has a manner which enables her to impart her extensive knowledge of law in a way that one can understand, and always has your interest to heart.
I have and would have no hesitation in recommended Rhian.

Thank you once again, it’s been a draining year on a number of levels, however, I very much appreciate your patience, support and guidance throughout the whole process. I genuinely feel like a different person this morning and you have been an integral part of achieving that
I really can’t express just how pleased I have been with Sally, nothing was ever too much trouble for her, her advice was always sound and she is very personable as well which makes things a whole lot easier. I will recommend Sally to anyone finding themselves in the position I did. I cannot thank or praise her enough, she really is an asset.
Thank you once again

Dear Hopkins Law:
I want to thank you for service and counseling. I especially want to thank Sally for going above and beyond to make my fiancé feel safe and comforted over the course of her court journey. Sally represented my fiancé on many different occasions and each time her personal touches truly meant the world to us. Thanks to Sally our dreams are coming true. We can be a family. As this year comes to an end, I’m receiving the best birthday and Christmas gift ever…My family being able to relocate with me. On behalf of my fiancé and our children, thank you. Our lives will forever be changed for the better. We highly recommend Sally and Hopkins Law to everyone.
Best wishes,

J

Hi Sally
I am very grateful for all your help. Walking into your Cowbridge office was the best decision I could have made.
Your help, which you gave for free when we first met, was really kind and really appreciated.
Due to the way you treated us, we were happy that whatever the result at court we had received the best representation possible. As it happened we were successful and couldn’t be happier.
I am really grateful for your hard work. thanks again for everything
