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.

We instructed Williamsons to carry out the conveyancing on our house purchase. Gemma was excellent, keeping us up to date with the progress made towards completion by email and sending us the relevant paper work. She made us aware of any issues and suggested a course of action. We would highly recommend using Williamsons.

Handled our sale and purchase extremely well, first class.

Mr and Mrs Green

We were delighted with the service we received. Although unable to speak to our designated officer Mrs Spooner, her assistant Natalie was always on hand to advise, particularly relevant on the final day when exchange and completion took place at the same time. A difficult period, not being helped by the long-distance, was made as easy as such a situation could ever be. Thank you.
