What is Domestic Abuse?

Statistics state that on average two women per week and thirty men per year are killed by their current or ex-partner and one in four women or one in six men will experience a form of domestic abuse at some point during their relationship.

Domestic Abuse can occur in many forms, and can include;

  • Sexual Violence
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Psychological Abuse
  • Physical / Domestic Violence
  • Financial Control

If you are suffering any of the above forms of domestic abuse or know of someone else who is, we can provide you with the appropriate advice.

What can we do to help?

We can apply to the Court on your behalf for an injunction against your partner. An Injunction is an Order which can be used to keep you safe. If necessary we can also provide immediate protection for your children.

The Injunction can place restrictions on your partner’s behaviour and prevent further violence or threats of violence.

There are two different types of Injunction we can apply for –

  • Non-molestation Order
  • Occupation Order

Nichola Skayman, Head of the Domestic Abuse Team, says as follows

“I pride myself on my team’s attention to detail and compassion with all clients. I am of the view that all individuals count and should be treated the same way that we would wish to be treated and building a good rapport with clients is key to having a strong working relationship. We strive to do our upmost to provide victims of domestic abuse with the protection that they need.

I am very passionate about domestic abuse work and over the years I have worked on some very high profile cases all over the country and I have also had cases in the High Court in London. I have worked with various different agencies including the Police and a number of Domestic Abuse agencies, and many more bodies.

In some cases it is necessary to issue proceedings out of the county to add extra protection for victims. This may also include children act proceedings where the risk of significant harm is so great it is too dangerous to issue proceedings near to where the victim and the family are located.

Myself and my team are the leading team in Lincolnshire for specialists in domestic abuse. We have a domestic abuse specialist located at each of our offices across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, and practice into Peterborough.”
