Unfortunately, when a relationship breaks down emotions are high and it is inevitable that couples will argue which can become particularly heated towards the end of a relationship. For some couples, this can extend to issues of domestic violence which can involve physical, sexual and emotional abuse. In these cases the law is available to protect vulnerable parties and it may be possible to obtain Orders from the court which can either prevent one party from approaching or contacting the other and/or regulates the parties’ use of a property. The Court may exclude one party entirely in certain circumstances to protect the other.
If at any time you feel you are subject to any form of abuse you should seek early legal advice.
