Boys and Maughan Solicitors

If you are feeling concerned about how your partner is behaving, Boys & Maughan solicitors can give you confidential legal advice. Then if you want us to we will apply to the courts for an injunction (non-molestation order) to protect you, or an occupation order so you no longer need to share your home with your partner.

It’s usually best to involve the police but by working with a solicitor you can often get a court order that stops problems more quickly and with less stress.

We work very closely with local domestic abuse support agencies, such as the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV), to provide advice and court representation to victims, and we can provide Legal Aid if you are eligible.

Please call or send us a message via the website and we will explain how we can help.

Childline

Childline offers free, confidential advice and support whatever your worry, whenever you need help.

If you’re a victim of domestic abuse and you’re worried about reporting it to the police, you can call ChildLine on 0800 1111.

They’ll let you know exactly what will happen if you tell someone about your situation and help you work out what to do next.
