Protection from Domestic Abuse

Employment law, Newbury, Berkshire.

Do Not Suffer Alone

Anyone reading this page who has suffered, or is suffering domestic abuse, has taken an incredible first step in seeking out advice. If you are in any immediate danger then you should call the Police immediately, and thereafter reach out for an urgent appointment with our family law team–please let us know if a remote video appointment or a face-to-face appointment either in the office or at a more public location would suit your needs.

Domestic abuse can take many forms; physical, emotional, verbal, harassment, controlling or coercive behaviour–None of which is acceptable and the primary concern is the welfare and protection of anyone vulnerable, including any relevant children.

Years of Experience

Our family team, and in particular the head of our family department, Chris Sutton, are very experienced in applying for and defending against applications for non-molestation and occupation orders under the Family Law Act 1996. These hearings are often listed on an emergency basis or a very short notice, so Chris’ advocacy experience in being able to attend Court to represent his clients, forgoing to necessity of instructing a barrister, can be invaluable in saving time and money.

Whether applying for protection, or you have just received service of Court papers about orders made against you, it is important to take urgent prompt advice, especially if there are shortly going to be other related matters, like a divorce, financial separation or issues with child arrangements following shortly after the urgency of the domestic abuse proceedings.
