People who are suffering from domestic violence may have been doing so for a considerable amount of time. It is the most important thing, once you have taken the step to get away from such abuse, is to know that you are being protected. In addition to this, if you have children who live in the house with you, their wellbeing must be of paramount importance.
Should you be in a situation where you are concerned for the wellbeing of yourself and your children, you need the violence to stop. The first source of help people turn to is the police. In the majority of cases, the police can only provide temporary measures unless the violence is extreme.
In order to get lasting protection that can help you to heal and begin to move forward with your life, you are invited to look into getting an injunction with the help of a divorce solicitor in London against the person who is responsible for causing the violence.
Before we go further, we want to stress that you do not need to suffer physical violence to justify having legal protection. If you feel unsafe in any way, should you be verbally abused, threatened or harassed even over the phone, then you are still welcome to seek guidance and support from us in obtaining protection.
What are the injunctions that I can obtain?
There are different types of injunctions that are available to you and can be obtained with the help of a divorce solicitor in London, a non-molestation order and an occupation order.
Non-molestation orders are there to protect you legally from violence, threats of violence, abuse and harassment. We are a dedicated team of specialists who have dealt with many of these cases before and can provide you with compassionate assistance. We attend all court proceedings on your behalf so that you can move on and make emergency applications to protect you from harm.
Occupation orders are injunctions that specify who can enter your property to live or visit your family home. If you or your children are at risk, an occupation order can prevent the abuser from residing in the same home or even coming near the property.
We are caring and considerate in these matters and can guide you through the entire process. We want you to understand that you are not alone and are working to provide you with a safe place for you and your children.
Please do not hesitate to call us to seek advice regarding acquiring an injunction and what your remaining steps to take will be to make sure that you no longer need to suffer at the hands of domestic violence.
This time in your life can be overwhelming and confusing. By taking legal advice and following the advice steps, you can work through one day at a time and get your life back on track. It is important for your wellbeing as well as the safety and wellbeing of any children that are involved that you seek the care and guidance that you need in order to break free and to stop living in fear.
