No one should have to suffer in silence from an abusive partner.
If you’re in a relationship that isn't working for you, it can be difficult to know where to turn for support. Asking for help is the first step to resolving the situation, so if you want to change your life, let us help you.
Domestic abuse, physical or psychological, is unacceptable in any relationship and you should never be made to feel scared or threatened in your own home. But we know that simply walking away from a violent partner isn’t always an option - particularly if children are involved or you don’t have access to your own finances.
That’s why it’s vital to talk to someone you trust. At FDR Law, our friendly, expert family solicitors can provide sympathetic but practical advice, explain your options and help you put an end to domestic abuse.
We work quickly to understand your unique situation and make your safety our priority. If you are in immediate danger we can take swift action and, where necessary, obtain court orders to protect you and your family from the abusive partner.
You can talk to us in complete confidence. We’ll discuss your options and what outcome you would like, as well as clearly explaining the ways in which the law can protect you from domestic violence.
We can also put you in touch with a range of organisations who can provide additional help and support. At every stage we keep you informed in plain, jargon-free English, explaining everything in straightforward terms, taking the right legal steps to protect you and your family.
Domestic violence can take many different forms but whatever you are experiencing, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. In these cases, you may be entitled to legal aid, as your partner’s income is not taken into account.
If you want to stop being in an abusive relationship, pick up the phone for a confidential chat on 01925 230000. It’s the first vital step to taking control of your situation.
