The police in the UK receive one call about domestic violence every minute. For those who are the victims of domestic violence there is no need to suffer in silence. The Courts offer protection to those that need it and have the power to make Non-Molestation Orders (Injunctions) that can protect against violence or threats of violence. It is a Criminal offence to breach an Injunction. The Courts also have the power to make Occupation Orders which can force a person to leave a property and order them not to return or go within a certain distance of it.

How Forbes can Help in Domestic Violence Cases

Forbes Solicitors know how serious domestic violence is and can make emergency applications to the Court for Injunctions in appropriate cases. Legal Aid is usually available and eligibility can be assessed at the initial appointment.

If you have been affected by any of the above issues please contact one of our family law team for a confidential chat about the options available to you.

We offer our private paying clients the option of our tailored service or for more straightforward cases a fixed fee service. We also offer advice on some areas for those who qualify for Legal Aid.

Please call Forbes Solicitors on freephone 0800 689 1058 or contact any of our Family Law Solicitors based at our offices in Blackburn, Chorley or Preston.
