What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence takes on many forms, from physical abuse to emotional or psychological manipulation. Examples of domestic violence include:
- Physical abuse (punching, slapping, hitting and biting)
- Emotional/psychological abuse (verbal abuse, humiliation, blaming and isolation)
- Sexual abuse (rape and unwanted sexual contact)
- Harassment (being followed, being watched and receiving unwanted contact)
Domestic violence can affect men, women and children. If you are a victim of domestic violence it can often feel like you are trapped, with no way of escaping your situation. Many victims suffer for years without speaking out for fear of the repercussions.
What should I do if I am a victim of Domestic Violence?
Speaking to someone who can assist is the best way to change your situation. If you are at immediate risk of domestic violence, you should contact the police for urgent assistance. Thereafter, you should make contact with a solicitor experienced in dealing with domestic violence cases, who can help you apply for Court orders to protect you and your home from threat. If required, a solicitor can deal with an abusive partner directly on your behalf, as well as directing you to further sources of support and advice.
Our experienced domestic violence solicitors can provide the understanding and expertise necessary to help individuals trapped in abusive relationships extricate themselves from their circumstances. We understand how distressing domestic violence is and deal with all cases with compassion and professionalism with a view to protecting the victim from further abuse.
