• Did the Respondent desert you for 2 years or more

We are able to assist and advise the parties in settling their financial and property differences in a fairly distribution.

We can assist in reaching an agreement and if required we can request the Court to have this agreement recognized by the court in a Consent Order

If you cannot reach a settlement agreement then we can represent you with the required expertise to commence proceedings for a financial remedy

Domestic Violence/ Injunctions

Are you a victim of domestic violence?

We can assist you in obtaining a Non-Molestation Order or an Occupation Order.

A non-molestation order forbids a person using or threatening violence and from intimidating, harassing or pestering another person.  It has a power of arrest which enables the police to arrest a person who they suspect of breaching an order.

An occupation order regulates the occupation of the family home in order to protect you or your children and can exclude a person otherwise entitled to occupy a property from doing so or from coming within a certain distance of it, or from coming within a defined area.

There are also other civil remedies available and particular action can be taken under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997
