How Simpson Millar Can Help You
Our Family Solicitors can help you by discussing your options with you confidentially and informing you of your potential choices. You’ll then be able to decide what you want to happen next.
You can submit an application for an Order to the Court yourself, but if you feel that you need a Solicitor’s support, we can apply for a Non Molestation or an Occupation Order with the Court on your behalf.
All applications under the Family Law Act are dealt with by the Magistrates' Family Proceedings Court or the County Court, or in some cases the High Court. Only the people involved and their Lawyer or Solicitor will be allowed into the closed Court, so you can be assured that your privacy is taken into account.
Our Family Solicitors know that urgent legal action is required in many domestic violence cases, so when this is necessary for a fee paying client, an emergency application can be made to the Court.
