The breakdown of a relationship is never easy. The situation is made even worse where domestic abuse is an issue or has become so since you have separated. Such behaviour is never acceptable.
Abuse can take many different forms and includes physical or sexual abuse, violence or threats of violence, controlling or coercive behaviour, financial abuse, psychological and emotional abuse and gaslighting. Breaking the cycle of abuse or harassment can be extremely difficult but it is important that you know that you have options available to you and people available to help and support you and to keep you safe.
If you have experienced, or are experiencing, domestic abuse then you should seek advice and support as soon as possible.
Raworths’ Family team can help you to obtain the support you need and if necessary take steps through the court to protect you and your children. To discuss your situation please contact a member of our family law team.
