Domestic Violence and Abuse Solicitors
At Onions & Davies, we understand the sensitive and complex nature of domestic violence and abuse cases. Our specialist family law team provides swift, compassionate and specialist legal assistance to individuals facing domestic abuse and violence. If you are experiencing domestic violence, abuse, or coercive controlling behaviour, we are here to help you protect yourself and your child(ren).
Injunctions: Occupation Orders and Non-Molestation Orders
Victims of domestic abuse have various legal options, including making emergency injunctions and applications. Our experienced domestic abuse solicitors can guide you through the available options, finding the most appropriate steps to take and helping you obtain necessary protection orders, such as occupation orders and non-molestation orders.
- Occupation Orders
An occupation order regulates who can live in the family home or enter the surrounding area. It can be used to remove an abusive partner or family member from the home or establish a defined living arrangement, ensuring your safety and well-being.
Our dedicated solicitors will work closely with you to understand your specific circumstances and gather evidence to support your application for an occupation order. We will represent your interests and advocate for your rights in court, striving to achieve the best outcome for you and your family.
- Non-Molestation Orders
A non-molestation order is a legal injunction that aims to protect individuals from harassment, threats, or acts of violence. It prohibits the abuser from contacting or approaching you, ensuring your safety and providing peace of mind.
Our family law team has extensive experience in assisting clients with non-molestation orders. We will provide comprehensive legal advice, helping you gather evidence and prepare the necessary documentation for the court application. Our solicitors will represent your interests and fight to secure the protection you deserve.
Support and Guidance for Domestic Abuse Sufferers
We understand that your journey may involve various aspects beyond legal matters, and we are committed to helping you access the necessary support to create a brighter future. We can connect you with professional counselling services and local charities specialising in supporting domestic abuse and violence survivors. These services are designed to empower you and your child(ren), helping you overcome the emotional impact of your experiences and providing a safe space to heal and grow.
Understanding the financial challenges that often accompany domestic abuse, we can advise on the support available from the Department for Work and Pensions to ensure you are aware of any benefits you may be entitled to. Our team can help you navigate the system, so you can access the financial resources you need to support your transition to a new life.
However, securing your immediate safety is vital. If you are in imminent danger, we urge you to contact the police. If you call the police but feel it is too dangerous to talk, by pressing ‘55’ after calling the emergency services, the police will still respond. Silent Solution 55 is the name given to the initiative that allows people to call 999 even when they cannot speak. It will mean that the call will still be put through to the police, and they will be notified that you are in a situation that makes talking or whispering difficult.
