Making the First Step

People who suffer from domestic violence often live in fear of their own and their family’s safety. However, by contacting PDA Law you can take the first step to ending the violence against you. You can talk to a solicitor you trust, who will talk to you in confidence about your case and discuss your legal options.

Taking Legal Action For Domestic Violence

Our family law solicitors will help you make an informed decision on what course of legal action is best for your situation. This will usually take the form of a court order – also know as an injunction.

There are two court orders that are typically used in domestic abuse cases. These are:

  • Non-Molestation Order – this order prevents your partner from abusing or threatening you and your family. Abusive behaviour that is stopped by a non-molestation order includes harassment, sexual and emotional abuse and controlling behaviour.
  • Occupation Order – an occupation order outlines who can and cannot live in your family home. If you are in an abusive relationship and wish for your partner to be evicted from the family home, an occupation order will prevent them from legally returning.

What will happen to my children?

If your partner does not adhere to the terms of the court order, you can take them to civil court to take further action.

You are eligible to take out an order if you are an ‘associated person’. This means you and the abuser must be associated with each other in some way. An associated person can include:

  • A spouse or ex spouse
  • A civil partner or ex partner
  • Cohabitants and ex cohabitants (including same sex couples)
  • Relatives
  • The parent of your child
  • A partner of significant duration

TESTIMONIALS

What Our Customers Say About Us

Quick & Responsive

Honestly I would recommend PDA for any agency/landlord deposit dispute. Jane was such a dream to work with and she got me a good compensation. She was quick and responsive throughout the whole process as well as transparent. She kept me in the loop with all correspondence with the agency/landlord. She also knows her stuff. Would recommend PDA law.

They provided us with realistic timescales

It was our first time we dealt with PDA law for our conveyancing. We were recommended to them by the Property agency. We are glad we had a good experience with PDA law, especially during lockdowns and Christmas period. They made sure, they had all the paper-work in place with all searches done in time. They provided us with realistic timescales, so that there is no disappointment towards the end. Looking forward to deal with them in the near future.
