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.
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.
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
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.
