Domestic Abuse

Domestic Violence is described as any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults, aged 18 and over, who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender and sexuality.

If you are suffering from domestic violence (including ‘gas lighting’), whether you are male or female, it is imperative you seek help as soon as possible. If you are in immediate danger you should call the Police.

There are also civil remedies available. You can apply for a Non-Molestation Order to stop the unwanted behaviour. In addition, you can apply for an Occupation Order, seeking to remove your partner from your home.
