Domestic Abuse & Child Protection

Experienced in family law

We understand just how difficult it is to understand and accept that what is happening to you may be classed as Domestic Abuse. We also understand just how hard it is to seek help.

At Browell Smith & Co Solicitors, our family law team is experienced in dealing with such matters in an empathetic and sensitive manner. We work closely with other support services who recommend us to their clients due to our professional and sympathetic approach.

Domestic abuse can cover a range of situations and relationships and we can advise you on immediate solutions both legally, practically, and emotionally along with advice and guidance on your long-term solutions.

We can take immediate steps to protect you and your children should you require it and advise you on any wider issues regarding children, property, and finances.

The type of orders that the family court can make and for which we can represent you are:

  • Non Molestation Orders/ Injunction in family proceedings: This protects you or your child from being threatened or harmed by the person who has abused you. 
  • Occupation Orders: This allows the Court to decide who should live, or not live, in the home or any part of it.
  • Prohibited Steps Orders: This is used by one parent to stop another parent from making certain decisions about their child’s upbringing.

You can trust our expert team to handle all matters in this area swiftly and decisively, but also with sensitivity and care. Contact our expert team today to arrange an initial consultation at any of our offices, in Newcastle, Cramlington, Ashington or alternatively by phone, to discuss your particular requirements.
