Domestic Violence

No-one should have to be a victim of domestic violence or abuse. If you are a victim of domestic violence or you know or suspect someone is a victim of domestic violence, then contact us today on 01926 852188 for practical advice on what you can do.

Domestic Violence affects both men and women and accounts for nearly a quarter of all crimes recorded nationally. As a victim you need to understand that you are not alone. There are people who can support, and more importantly, protect you. 

Disturbing recent statistics say that 1 in 4 women will suffer some sort of domestic abuse over their lifetime and for every five victims of abuse, three will be female, two will be male. 120 women and 30 men are killed by their current or former partners each year. 

One of the hardest things to do is to tell someone about what you are going through, but by reading this page, you have already started to take action.

David Lee Solicitors are here to help and will provide you with confidential and practical advice on what to do to protect yourself and to protect any children that may be involved.

You can contact us by email or call us on 01926 852188. 

The Courts have wide ranging powers to protect victims of domestic violence and their children. We can go to Court for you to get an injunction to protect you from further violence or abuse. These can last from 6 months to a year. If necessary we can ask the Court to make an order that the person who has been violent towards you must leave the family home and allow you to return. We can arrange for domestic violence, protection notices and orders, which are effective immediately and can last from 48 hours to 28 days. 

At David Lee Solicitors we can move quickly to provide you with a practical solution which is best for you and your family.

Contact us today and start living a life that is free from violence and abuse.
