Violence in the Home
Society has come to realise that domestic abuse should not be tolerated. The law is supportive and sympathetic to those who experience domestic abuse, whether from their partner, an ex-partner or other family members. We can advise you on family protection. In certain cases, we are able to obtain protection for you as a matter of urgency, usually within 24 hours and in some cases even quicker. We have an accredited domestic violence specialist within the team.
In most cases, a court order will provide you with protection for one year. This can be backed up with the power of arrest, ensuring that the police have authority to apprehend the violent ex-partner or family members whilst the order is in force, should he/she continue to threaten or harass you.
Berry Redmond Gordon & Penney charge at an hourly rate, which is influenced by the following:
- The particular expertise and experience of the person dealing with the case
- The complexity of the transaction
- Whether the matter requires unusually urgent and swift action
- The time spent on the matter
We always give an estimate of the likely costs at the beginning of the matter, with regular updates as the matter progresses, so that you can always be certain of the costs involved in your particular case at any given time.
