It is never easy to recognise that you are experiencing domestic abuse but that is the first step to make sure you and your family are safe. Domestic abuse can be any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse. It can be psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional. The second step is to take action to protect yourself.
We can help you quickly by asking the courts to grant an injunction within 24 hours.
Orders and injunctions can be granted by the court against family members who have abused you. They can also be made against non-family members. These orders can do a variety of things including:
- Prohibiting them from harassing or intimidating you
- Preventing someone from entering your home
- Requiring someone to leave your home
- Requiring them to pay the rent or the mortgage so you can continue living in your home
