At Hattons Solicitors we help victims of domestic abuse or violence whether they have been hurt from one attack or whether the domestic abuse or violence has happen over a period of time.
Often the greatest risk of domestic violence happens when a couple separates but however it has happened it can have a huge impact on the victim or on any children in the family, which is why it is so important to seek help.
Domestic Abuse Is Not Just Physical Violence
Domestic abuse does not need to be physical violence but can also include psychological, sexual, financial or emotional abuse as well as threats of violence.
Our team will talk to you in confidence often dealing with very sensitive issues. At Hattons we can help you to get an injunction, which would exclude the perpetrator from your home and/or a defined area around your home, giving you time to recover and decide how to move forward.
Types of Injunction
There are two types of injunction that we can help you to get to protect you:
- Non-Molestation Order – this prohibits the threat or use of violence or intimidation, harassment or pestering
- An Occupation Order – this is often granted when there is a significant risk of harm to you or your children. This may then exclude your partner from your home.
