Domestic Abuse Solicitors
At Latimer Lee we know that Domestic abuse can occur in many different forms. Our Family Solicitor has a number of years experience in assisting victims of Domestic Abuse and has also worked closely with Domestic Abuse Charities and understands just how difficult it can be to reach out for advice and assistance.
There are two types of emergency protection Orders; non-molestation orders and occupation orders.
A non-molestation order is made for the protection of a person or child and we understand that swift action is needed; which often means that we can make your application to the Court that same day.
An Occupation Order can do a number of things but is primarily used to exclude a violent partner from the home; protecting you and your family. It is usually a short term measure and the length of the Order will depend upon your circumstances; but in most cases it will last between six and twelve months; unless an application is made to renew the Order.
An occupation Order can only be made for a property where you both live, did live or intended to live in as the Family Home. There are a number of things that need to be considered when making an application for an Occupation Order and our family solicitor will give you tailored advice and discuss your options with you.
