Domestic Abuse

If there is violence or abuse in your relationship and you need to take urgent action, our experienced team is here for you and can provide immediate assistance. We have a lot of experience in this area and we understand the difficulties and challenges involved in trying to walk away from an abusive relationship.

Your specialist family solicitor will be able to take the necessary action to safeguard you and those close to you from any further harm and will act on your behalf to protect your interests and look after the future of your children without you having to attend face-to-face meetings with your former partner.


We can help you to obtain an Injunction, which is a court order that will legally prevent your abuser from harming you again. If they break the terms of the order, they can be arrested.

There are two types of Injunction that can be granted by the court:

Our experienced family law solicitors will talk you through all the options that are available to you. We can offer a special emergency service to anyone who is affected by domestic abuse, and we can often provide legal representation on a clear, fixed-fee basis in these circumstances.

Domestic Violence

Our expert family law solicitors here at Ackroyd Legal have many years’ experience in helping our clients to take legal action against their former partners to protect them and their children from further harm.

If there is abuse in your relationship it is important to report what has happened to the police, who will be able to immediately establish protection measures. If you have been physically assaulted, your partner may be liable to immediate arrest. If your partner presents a risk of violence, the police may serve a Domestic Violence Protection Notice, which will require them to leave and make no further contact for a period of 48 hours.
