Our caring team are experts when it comes to helping you stay strong and move forward

Domestic violence is never OK but sadly we often see clients who are dealing with the emotional, financial and sometimes physical effects of domestic and family violence as they separate from their partner.

At every stage we’re here to support you (and your children), so you can find the strength to walk away and not look back. You don’t have to do it alone, and if you’re worried about money we’ll work with you to keep costs down.

Recognising domestic violence is just the start

We often find that half the battle is helping people recognise they may be victims of domestic violence. We can’t undo the past, but we can help protect you going forward, identifying if what you have been living with was appropriate and if it needs to stop.

Domestic and family violence is more than just physical, it encompasses many different types of abuse, including emotional abuse, verbal threats and insults, financial control and abuse, invasions of privacy, and even fighting in front of your children.

We’ll help you stop it and get back in control as you rebuild your life.

Why Would You Need A Lawyer?

  • We can help you take steps to ensure your safety (and that of your children)

    We can keep things private if you are concerned about your partner finding out. We won’t call or email you and you don’t even have to tell us your address. If you like, you can simply meet us and go.

    Our #1 priority is to keep you safe.

    We can help you determine if taking out orders is a good idea (in some cases it can make things worse) and we’ll work quickly in a crisis to ensure your safety. You don’t need to face this alone, we’ll handle everything for you and help you reclaim your life.

  • Get Straight Advice before entering into a private arrangement

    From time to time we see people accuse their partners of domestic violence as a method of manipulating the court system. Although the court has every sympathy for genuine cases, they can be severe when accusations are incorrectly used as weapons in Children’s Matters.

    Being wrongly accused of domestic violence can have a significant impact on any potential court case, so if you feel that the charges against you are unfair then we’ll help to clear your name.

Transparent Fixed Fees For Peace Of Mind

We Offer a fixed fee model meaning you pay for the work that’s done, not for how long it takes to do the work. You’ll know exactly what you will pay as you go, with no nasty surprise bills.
