Domestic abuse

Legal help with domestic abuse

In July 2008 a free legal advice centre was launched in Welwyn Hatfield for victims of Domestic abuse, in collaboration with the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV) and solicitors.

The 24-hour service specialises in helping people to obtain injunctions from the Court to protect them from any further abuse. Victims can directly get in touch with a solicitor who can help provide advice and support on a range of legal services. These include accessing rights to children; housing and financial matters.

The legal advice centre can be contacted on 08709 220704, free phone 0844 80 44 999 or by sending NCDV a text message on 60777.
