Domestic abuse does not have to be physical violence. It can be any type of controlling, bullying or threatening behaviour between people in a family relationship. The abuse does not have to take place in the home, it can be in a public place. Domestic abuse is rarely a one-off incident and can be a pattern of behaviour where one person is trying to assert power over you. Sometimes, the behaviour can get worse over time, and can continue after you have left the relationship.
If you are in immediate danger, report the matter to the police. If you still feel you need to protection, you can speak to someone about applying to the court for a Non-molestation or Occupation Order. Our Family team can advise and assist you in relation to obtaining an order to provide protection to you and your children.
We are able to offer Legal Aid provided you are eligible. Please see our Legal Aid page for more details.
