Can I get legal help for domestic violence?

No one has the right to subject you to domestic violence, harassment or abuse. Yet many people live in fear of violent and abusive partners, with devastating effects on their own lives, and often the lives of their children too.

Naturally, calling the police is one way to handle distressing situations like this. However, if you need advice about the protection you can obtain - and don't wish to bring criminal charges - you might want to consider talking to one of our experienced family lawyers.

They are here to help you with expert advice and a variety of legal solutions that can give you the protection you deserve. You can also rest assured that we handle every call and every case in complete confidence, to ensure your safety.

If you are the victim of domestic violence, call us now on 0800 780 2730 or contact us online today and we will call you.

What if I'm being harassed by another family member?

Abuse and harassment don't always come from a spouse or partner. Many people suffer domestic abuse from other relatives and members of their extended families.

If this is happening to you, and you need a permanent solution to the problem, Slater and Gordon can provide you with assistance to obtain the protection you need. Call us now to speak to a family law expert on 0800 780 2730 or contact us online today and we will call you.

Who can help me with domestic violence issues?

You can find out more about how they do this by reading our legal advice guide to Domestic Violence & Harassment.

Many of our family solicitors are also members of resolution, an organisation committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes through non-confrontational communication.
