Sadly, domestic violence can be particularly prevalent during the Christmas period. UK police forces report that domestic violence incidents can go up by as much as a third on Christmas Day. Many more incidents of domestic violence go unreported. According to the charity Women’s Aid “a great deal of domestic violence is not reported and is likely to increase around holiday periods”. Domestic violence does not always mean an act of physical aggression or violence. In light of the relatively new criminal offence of coercive and controlling behaviour, it is recognised more and more that domestic violence can occur in many forms. This can include:
Victims of this type of behaviour may not even realise they are being controlled or coerced by their partner. Their confidence is often destroyed and they may feel completely helpless. Here at Poole Alcock we have specialist lawyers who work with local groups such as Cheshire Without Abuse (MyCWA) and New Era, which are local charities who provide accommodation, advice and practical help to men, women and children escaping domestic abuse. We have expert lawyers who you can talk to, who will understand the obstacles you face and will be able to help you to overcome these.
Although Legal Aid funding has been removed from most areas of family law. If you have been subject to domestic violence we can work with you to obtain the appropriate evidence and use our expertise to make an application for funding on your behalf.
