Fraser Hollands Solicitors

Fraser Hollands are committed to helping those who have or you are at risk of suffering domestic abuse. With a highly skilled team, we strive to achieve quick and robust protection for our clients against abuse whether this is advice and assistance through preparing a warning letter or preparation and representation at Court for an Injunction.

It is important to remember that nobody should be subjected to violence, abuse or threats of harm. The term ‘abuse’ can cover a whole range of behaviour, not just physical violence but controlling behaviour, financial control, intimidation and emotional harm.

Provided that your circumstances meet the requirements of the Legal Aid Agency guidance (LASPO), you may be eligible to obtain Legal Aid to be represented on an application for a Non-Molestation Order.

We at Fraser Hollands are experts in this area of the law and our friendly team are always on hand to help and support you through this difficult process with compassion and sensitivity.
