Domestic Abuse

At AFG LAW our family solicitors regularly support and advise people affected by domestic violence and abuse. We understand that people can find it difficult to talk about what has happened, especially if they haven’t told anyone before. Our friendly, easy to talk to solicitors have helped hundreds of people over the years and can use their experience to help you deal with this difficult time.


We understand that domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, background, sex, gender, religion, ethnicity or disability. Our solicitors won’t judge and will just do their best to help you get the support you need. Domestic abuse can affect every part of your life so as well as helping you safeguard yourself and children on an urgent basis we can also help with arrangements for the children for the future, divorce or dissolution and sorting out financial settlements.
