Domestic Abuse Solicitors

If you are experiencing domestic abuse from your partner or a family member, know that you are not alone. GN Law is here to help you confidentially and with compassion. Our Domestic Abuse Solicitors in London understand the emotional and legal challenges you may be facing, and we are dedicated to supporting you through this difficult time.

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse includes any incident of controlling, coercive, or threatening behaviour, violence, or abuse between intimate partners or family members. It can be physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, or financial.

How can we help?

If you are suffering from any domestic abuse it is extremely important that you seek legal advice immediately. At GN Law, our experienced Domestic Abuse Lawyers can assist you in obtaining a court order (injunction) to protect yourself from further abuse. We will handle all the legal paperwork and represent you in court.

There are two different types of injunctions that can protect you from domestic abuse:

  • Non-Molestation Orders: A Non-Molestation Order prohibits your partner from contacting or harming you in any way. This can include phone calls, texts, emails, stalking, or physical violence. Breaching a non-molestation order is a criminal offence punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
  • Occupation Orders: An Occupational Order allows you to remain safely in your home and restricts your partner’s access. Depending on the circumstances, the court can exclude your partner entirely or set specific times when they are allowed to collect belongings.

Getting Legal Support

We understand that legal costs can be a concern. You may be eligible for Legal Aid to cover the cost of legal advice and representation. We can assess your eligibility and discuss all available options with you. If you are entitled, we would be able to provide free legal advice and representation.
