If you or your children are subjected to violence or harassment from a family member or cohabitee then we recommend you seek urgent advice.
We can advise you as to whether you may obtain family law Orders from the Court to protect you from further violence and whether you are entitled to public funding for this. The family law act injunctions that are available are as follows:
As soon as we are instructed we act quickly and where appropriate can apply to the court within one day, without the other party knowing, to obtain an order to protect you and/or your children. If you are entitled to public funding, we may be able to secure funding on a same day basis, where an urgent application to the court is necessary.
We will liaise closely with our Social Welfare department if the issues in your case require their help.
If you are the victim of domestic violence, harassment or threatening behaviour contact is straight away and we will provide urgent assistance to secure your safety and that of any children involved.
