Domestic violence, harassment and emergency remedies
Are you the victim of domestic abuse? Or do you know of someone who is experiencing abuse and may need help and support?
At Prism Family Law we can assist individuals to gain help and protection if they are facing the threat of violence, intimidation or harassment be it from a partner, other family member or indeed neighbour or any other person for that matter.
We offer emergency appointments so that we can assess if there is enough justification to make an application to the court for a protective order that a person be restrained from either causing harassment or alarm or distress or from then either inflicting violence or instructing others to do so on their behalf. Such an emergency order can be obtained without notice to the person causing the harassment or making threats or causes abuse and or violence and such orders can even be worded so as to prevent the perpetrator from returning to the home or from being within a certain distance of you or your home if you are in fear that they will be violent to you or they will threaten or intimidate you further.
In all instances in the first instance reference should always be made to the police and in cases of immediate emergency you should telephone 999 and make a complaint as domestic abuse can be considered as a criminal offence.
