Domestic violence and abuse | Legal Aid is available

Our experts can take prompt and effective steps to protect you and your family. We can apply for protective orders to help provide you with protection.

Emergency action can mean discussing your situation with you and going to Court on the same day. This can be to seek protective orders, called Non-Molestation orders, or an order securing occupation of a property, called Occupation orders.  In some circumstances we can take this action without prior warning to the other person.

We provide a 24 hour helpline service where you can call or text us and we will telephone you back to provide emergency advice. Alternatively, drop in to our Compass House, North Street Office (Havant) to see one of our team.

Legal Aid is available for emergency action.

It is important to be aware that domestic abuse is not only physical violence. You do not have to suffer any form of abuse before you can obtain protection. Harassment and other ill treatment can justify action being taken.

Domestic abuse causes serious harm to people and also impacts on children. Domestic abuse is unacceptable and needs to be prevented.

Don’t suffer in silence. Take action NOW.
