If you have been the victim of domestic violence it is important that you consult a legal service provider you trust in order to establish your next steps. Here is some basic guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.
Domestic abuse is the mistreatment of one partner within an intimate or family relationship. Types of domestic abuse can include physical violence, psychological abuse and controlling behaviour. The abuse could be a one-off event or could continue over a period of time.
Domestic violence is a crime and you should report this to the police immediately. A legal service provider will be able to offer you expert advice on the best options available to ensure that you are protected from future abuse.
No. Domestic violence could happen within any relationship between two people or within family relationships.
A legal expert will represent you in court if the case progresses to that stage, but they can also provide invaluable guidance and advice on the processes and procedures involved in domestic violence cases. They can also point you to where to go for help with domestic violence such as relevant support networks.
Domestic violence cases are extremely sensitive and as such you should appoint a legal expert that you trust and can talk openly with. There are a number of other considerations you may also wish to take into account, including the location, cost and size of a firm.
