Domestic violence

If your partner is violent or abusive, there is no need to suffer in silence. Mooney Everett Solicitors provides advice on all aspects of family law from our offices in Ormskirk.

Domestic violence can take many different forms – verbal, psychological, physical or sexual. In whatever form, domestic abuse is unacceptable.

However, we understand that walking away from a violent partner is never an easy option – particularly if children are involved or you do not have access to your own finances.

At Mooney Everett Solicitors we work quickly to understand your unique situation and make the safety of you and your children our priority. We will explain your legal rights to property, maintenance payments and advise you on your plans for the future.

If you are in immediate danger, we can take swift action and, where necessary, we can apply to court for an injunction to prevent your partner from coming near you, or harassing you, in the future.

The 24-hour National Domestic Violence Helpline (0808 2000 247) offers emergency support, help and information.

We can advise you on:

At Mooney Everett we explain things in plain English, free of any jargon. We will discuss all the options with you, outlining the costs involved from the outset, and we make sure that you are kept informed regularly.
