Stay at home – Save Lives
Stay at home – save lives - this is the advice of the Government to stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
But what if you do not feel safe at home. Whether you are shielding, safe-isolating or social distancing there is a real risk to those who are having to do so with a perpetrator of abuse. The figures are stark – 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will experience domestic abuse.
Samantha Lee of Swain & Co Solicitors says,
“despite the current circumstances there is still help available for those suffering abuse”.
The Family Court is open and dealing with applications remotely by telephone or video call.
Depending on your circumstances we can grant emergency legal aid to apply for an order to provide protection or in some cases to remove the perpetrator from the home. We are specialist domestic abuse solicitors - if you are need of assistance call for free on 0800 0351 999 for initial free advice.
