Domestic abuse does not only consist of physical violence and can include verbal and psychological abuse suffered at the hands of a loved one. Abuse in the family home is often excused, denied, belittled and sometimes not even realised.
Getting out in the open and discussing the issue is an essential step in ending this treatment, and helps break down the fear that hold victims back from help more generally.
An abusive relationship will wear you down and cause feelings of helplessness, shame or self-loathing. Whether you consider your spouse to be a difficult person or an abuser, the situation is clear; a marriage that causes distress, unhappiness or physical or mental difficulties must be terminated with help of professionals. Nobody should live in fear of the person they love.
We can also assist victims of domestic abuse with emergency injunctions in the family courts to protect them from any further suffering.
Legal aid is usually available for domestic abuse proceedings. We can advise, free of charge, on whether you will qualify for legal aid and where legal aid is not available we can represent you on a reasonable private basis which can include a fixed fee arrangement.
