Injunctions

Injunctions

We understand that suffering from domestic abuse, violence or harassment at the hands of your partner is a very difficult and sensitive issue.  Our friendly staff can help you and have a great deal of experience in dealing with many abuse cases.

Domestic abuse is any behaviour intended to hurt or frighten you.  This can be physical violence or threatening words and acts.  Harassment can include damage to your property, sending abusive letters and text messages, or entering within an area surrounding your home.

An injunction is a Court Order that requires someone to do or not do something.  The most common Court Orders are:

  • Non-Molestation Order – this is aimed at preventing your partner or ex-partner from using or threatening violence against you or your child.  This includes harassing, pestering or intimidating and assault.  A Non-Molestation Order can also stop your partner from getting someone else to harass you.
  • Occupation Order – this regulates who can live in the family home and can also restrict your abuser from entering the surrounding area.  An Occupation Order can:
  • Allow you to remain in the home if your partner is trying to get you out
  • Allow you back into the home if your partner has already thrown you out
  • Remove your partner from the home
  • State that you and your partner must live in separate parts of the home
  • Restrict your partner from entering the surrounding area

We can protect you from your abuser and ensure that you are safe.

We can help to protect you from your abuser and ensure you are safe.

As well as between couples domestic abuse can occur between parents and children, brothers and sisters, family relations and anyone who lives together. It is not just about violence. In fact domestic abuse could involve controlling someone’s movements or behaviour or verbally or psychologically abusing them. Controlling finances and denying a person access to money is also a form of domestic abuse.

Whatever an individual may be going through, we can protect you and any children that may be involved from further suffering.

Our experienced and understanding experts are committed to helping the victims of domestic abuse, explaining the immediate steps you can take to protect yourself and any children from further abuse. Longer terms we can give you the support you need to move on.

If you are being subjected to domestic abuse we can provide the practical advice and assistance you may need to find a way forward. If necessary we can go to court the same day to put an emergency order in place to ensure your safety. We will treat you with the strictest of confidence and can check if you are entitled to legal aid to cover your costs. If legal aid is not available we will explain how our fixed fee price works, keeping you informed about costs every step of the way. To help you further we can put you in touch with a number of dedicated domestic abuse charities and support groups. We can also help if you are separating from your spouse or partner – advising you on what to do about finances, housing and issues involving children.

Helping those accused of domestic abuse

We can also advise and support those who have had allegations of domestic abuse made against them. Our experts can explain what this means, the impact it might have on you and what steps you need to take.

Mrs Kathleen A

Excellent relationship management, clear and concise advice including option analysis. Very happy with all aspects of the service provided and the outcomes achieved. Friendly professional service.

Mr & M

Carey Robinson acted as our Solicitor on a recent commercial purchase and she was brilliant. Carey was super efficient and we were kept up to date on every aspect of the purchase. From start to finish our "Property Auction" purchase only took 7 working days to complete. We will definitely be using Carey again and can highly recommend her 5 star service.

I have nothing but praise for Gordon Sewell at the Hull office. He conducted my unusual and difficult civil case with great care and understanding. Gordon also injected the right amount of sympathy for my plight without being unprofessional. I would recommend him to anyone needing a clued up civil litigation lawyer.

Richard K

very helpful and efficient. thanks to all

Mr Nick Gray was assigned my enquiry and worked with me throughout. He made himself available at all times and was always supportive to me on numerous occasions when I found myself unsure and admittedly nervous. He never let me down. I believe his advice was always good and I relied on it throughout. I think the award was the best I could have obtained and in conclusion I can honestly say that I am happy. The other contact I have had over the years was your receptionist, the face of your company. I was always greeted with a smile and the offer of a cup of coffee. On the occasions I visited your Hull office I was always made to feel important. Thank you.

Professional and courteous team. Recommend highly.

I’ve rated my experience with Williamson’s solicitors as excellent.My case was handled by Mr. Gordon Sewell. Mr. Sewell was very quick to get to work on my case, as was necessary at the time. Everything he did for me was thorough and made sure I had every chance in my case. Everything Mr Sewell did for me turned out a success and I couldn’t have been happy with the way he dealt with myself, could communicated with myself and dealt with the case in its entirety.I wouldn’t hesitate to use Williamson’s solicitors again should I require it and would recommend their services to anyone. In fact, I already have since my experience!Thanks again Gordon.

Recently used Williamsons Solicitors as part of a remortgage and some other matters. Can't fault their service at all. Carey dealt with my file and was polite, professional and informative from beginning to end. Always kept me up to speed with progress. I would highly recommend them.

Mrs Margaret W

Excellent service with a friendly face

Mr Martin a

Was very happy with the service given by Williamsons solicitors who dealt with the probate of a friends will and also the selling of her property. Especially Diane Ramsden whose help was invaluable.

Williamsons took on my case following the collapse of another Hull legal practice. Despite them having to pick up a large amount of work already completed by others, they worked tirelessly to ensure the correct outcome for me. I cannot recommend this company highly enough, they go above and beyond the norm to make sure their clients are treated fairly.

We used Williamsons for selling and buying a property, we found Jane Cousins and her assistant Sam Pollard to be pleasant, professional and efficient. Lisa on reception downstairs was particularly helpful and polite. Thank you to you all.

Mr J G

Avery good service with very professional and knowledgeable staff.

Brilliant, thank you for helping me make this process easier.

Mr G B

I would recommend Williamson’s to any potential client. From the onset I was supported throughout a very difficult conveyance and my solicitor was very professional at all times. It is advisable to engage the services of a local company and not one advised by online estate agencies. Very competitive pricing too. Thank you Williamson’s.

Mr and Mrs Overall

Very helpful quick excellent service Have dealt with both Jenny Holloway and Emma Hudson in the past and on each occasion have found them both excellent and would recommend them both to any future clients Thank you once again for your excellent professional service

Mr C P

Brilliant communication and a first class effort despite a Rocky move, Jenny and Emma at the Hull city centre branch where fantastic.

Ms A

Very helpful and attentive, would definitely recommend Samantha/Jane of Williamsons sollicitors

Sue L

Our solicitor Carey Robinson was at all times helpful and professional, nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

Barbara C

I have used Williamsons Solicitors twice this year - for obtaining probate and for the sale of a leasehold flat and on both occasions I have found Williamsons to be extremely efficient and speedy. They were very knowledgeable and kept me well informed at all times. Any queries I had were answered promptly and all advice given was accurate and most helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Williamsons to anyone in need of a first class, reliable and customer friendly solicitor. Thank you for making a traumatic situation as stress free as possible.
