We have a strong family team with members whose expertise encompasses domestic violence.
We are frequently instructed in applications for non-molestation orders, occupation orders and applications to transfer a tenancy as well as other applications made under the Family Law Acts and Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007.
Due to the nature of these proceedings many applications are made on an urgent basis. Our proximity to the Brighton Family Court, the excellent facilities at our disposal and a wider team of Family Law practitioners makes us well-placed to deal with these applications quickly and professionally.
We understand the sensitive nature of these applications and our members work hard to support clients during the process.
