If you are experiencing domestic abuse you may be able to get help from a specialist solicitor to keep an abusive person away from you and your home. Solicitors can provide services in family law and will seek injunctions on a client’s behalf. Many offer a free or a reduced rate initial consultation or can offer legal aid.

For more information on available advice and support please see the South Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Directory of Services.
