MW Solicitors

Our mission is to make quality legal services accessible to everyone, especially those at risk of domestic violence.

We will respond quickly and efficiently to any request for advice, assistance and representation.

We can help you to apply for an injunction following verbal abuse, violence or threats of violence or harassment (including through social media). This can be in the form of a non-molestation order, an occupation order or a Protection from Harassment order which can be obtained to not only protect you (and any children) from violence, but also to sort out who stays in the home.

Same day appointments are available for the most urgent of cases whenever possible, and we can often get to Court the same day.

Arthurs Solicitors

At Arthurs Solicitors we will provide you with discreet specialist advice and assistance to ensure that you and your children are safe from any abuse or harm. We understand domestic abuse is a particularly serious situation and we act instinctively and sensitively. How you wish to communicate with us is to your discretion and we will act accordingly.

We can assist you by obtaining a Non-Molestation order, preventing a violent or abusive partner, ex-partner or family member from subjecting you and/ or the children of the family to abuse; and also exclude a violent or abusive partner, ex-partner or family member from the home or other family property, by way of an occupation order. We can also assist you in obtaining a Forced-Marriage Protection order in circumstances where this is required.

We are contracted by the Legal Aid Agency and orders can be applied for on an immediate emergency basis, without your partner, ex-partner or family member being present at the initial court hearing for your protection depending on the circumstances.

If you would like to discuss matters urgently and discreetly kindly contact us using the details below.

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.
