Domestic abuse is not simply physical violence. It can take many forms, all of which can be equally terrifying and unsettling. This can include verbal abuse, harassment, controlling behaviour, sexual abuse, financial abuse and control, and intimidating behaviour. The abuse can also vary in duration, sometimes being occasionally, but in other cases regularly and over a long period of time. The abuse can be actual or threatened.
Men can also be the victims of domestic abuse just as well as women, children, parents and elderly people who are also vulnerable.
You are not alone in dealing with this, and our lawyers will listen and support you throughout the process.
Domestic abuse is unacceptable and if you are the victim of abuse, JC Solicitors can assist by obtaining the necessary orders from the court to protect you and your family.
