In addition, we can connect victims with helpful resources such as shelters, counselling services, and support groups. It is important to be aware that domestic abuse is not only physical violence. You do not have to suffer any form of abuse before you can obtain protection. Harassment and other ill-treatment can justify action being taken.

When someone is a victim of domestic violence, it is important that they get the legal help that they need in order to protect themselves and their children.
No one has the right to subject you to domestic violence, harassment or abuse. However, it is very common for people to live in fear of violent and/or abusive partners and do nothing about it, which can have devastating impacts on their own lives and also the lives of their children and family members.
Naturally, calling the police is one way to handle distressing situations like this. However, if you need advice about the protection you can obtain – and don’t wish to bring criminal charges – you might want to consider talking to one of our experienced family lawyers.
They are here to help you with expert advice and a variety of legal solutions that can give you the protection you deserve. You can also rest assured that we handle every call and every case in complete confidence, to ensure your safety.
What if I’m being harassed by another family member?
Abuse and harassment aren’t always cause from a spouse or partner. It is very common for people to suffer domestic abuse from other relatives and members of their extended families.
If this is happening to you, and you need a permanent solution to the problem, Young’s Law can provide you with best in class legal advice and assist you in being removed for the situation and obtain the protection you need.
If you wish to speak with one of our family lawyers, you can call us now to speak to a family law expert on 033 33 582 588 or fill out a contact form and we will get back to you.
