It is a crime for anyone to assault you whether or not they are a partner or family member. The police are now well trained in this area and can use the criminal law to assist you. This can include harassment.
It is also possible to obtain assistance from the Civil Courts by applying for an injunction.
Our Family Team are experienced in these matters. They can advise you of your options, and guide and assist you on using other services such as the police to help you remain safe.
Domestic abuse can also lead to other issues such as the occupation of your house and most importantly the care of your children.
