Domestic violence takes many forms - physical or sexual abuse, psychological abuse such as intimidation, harassment, damage to property, or financial abuse, plus threats to carry out any of these.

If someone you are in a domestic or close relationship with, it could be a partner, ex-partner, flatmate or family member, exposes you to this type of abuse, you can get police and court orders to help protect you while you get the help you need. It’s also a crime if the person who has harassed you threatens to do any of those things, or encourages someone else to do any of those things to you.

If you're in immediate danger, call 111 and ask for the police.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, our team of lawyers can help you apply for a Protection Order from the Family Court. A Protection Order has these main conditions: no violence and no contact with the people protected by the Order. A Protection Order can be in place even if you are living with the person that the order is against.

The team at The Law Shop is experienced, approachable, and non-judgemental. We genuinely care, and we will work hard to get your legal requirements, such as a Protection Order, sorted - often within 24 hours. We can also help you apply for legal aid to pay for our legal services. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
