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.

Mr Leech

I have dealt with williamsons solicitors before and would recommend them unreservedly to anyone ,they are friendly ,efficient, very professional and they get the job done ,all the staff are courteous and nothing is too much trouble . I also really like the fact that hard copies of documents I required where posted to me rather than being emailed once again thank you for a first class service in these difficult times

Linda J

I found Williamsons kept us informed all the way through our claim . I could always speak to someone regarding any queries . The result of the claim was handled efficiently and was very successful .

Judith H

I am very impressed with Williamsons Solicitors. After initial set backs with a Barrister who was not willing to proceed (in his estimation our case did not have enough of a chance of winning) Williamsons did not give up and advised they had approached another Barrister who agreed that our case was good and should be pursued. Williamsons gathered information and evidence very diligently and to good effect - we won our case. If Williamsons had not persisted our case would have fallen at the first hurdle - we are glad we took their advice.

During a worldwide pandemic Williamsons were superb, i was kept up to date with proceedings, costs, future expectations etc. Using all forms of communiction including Email, telephone, face to face, video chat the knowledge and expertise is second to none and i wouldn't hesitate to use again should i require. I would highly recommend Williamsons for any legal matters their professionalism and helpfulness made my case much smoother, together with the ability to pay stage by stage i cannot stress how great the service was, needless to say my case was resolved to my expectations. I would urge anyone to use Williamsons for legal advice an easy 5 stars with special mention to Paul, Karen and Claire for the service i received from them.

Ms L

I chose Theresa and Toni at Williamsons again for this property purchase because of the care, attention to detail and professionalism they demonstrated last year when I bought another property. I have received a marvellous service again and I feel confident that they will have carefully looked at every detail of the necessary documentation involved in the buying process. Geographically, Williamsons is a long way from the property I have just bought but firms like Williamsons are a rarity and worth seeking out. I thoroughly recommend this company.

I chose Williamsons to act as my conveyancers and I have been super impressed with their professionalism and ethics to act on behalf of their client. My process was a long one, due to no fault on Williamsons part, but they never dropped the ball and continued to chase the other party until we got the answers we needed. I would choose them again in a heart beat and recommend their services.
