Gorvins Approach to Domestic Violence

At Gorvins, we take cases involving emotional and mental abuse every bit as seriously as cases which involve physical violence. Both can have severe long-term repercussions for the victims, adversely affecting their ability to lead a normal everyday life. Our team of experts will do everything in their power to minimise the stress involved and ensure that any abuse is brought to a stop as quickly as possible.

We have extensive experience in a range of areas related to domestic violence and abuse, including:

  • Physical, sexual and emotional violence
  • Preventing child abduction and dealing with cases where abduction has already taken place
  • Allegations of violence
  • Harassment or threatening behaviour

Over the years, Gorvins has established a well-earned reputation for handling domestic violence cases with compassion as well as with skill. There are a number of areas in which we can help you if you’re faced with the threat of domestic violence. These include:

  • Obtaining a non-molestation order to prevent a violent or abusive partner or other family member from abusing you or any children involved
  • Obtaining an occupation order, which prevents a violent or abusive partner or relative from intruding in your home or on your private property
  • Dealing with cases of harassment

How can Gorvins Help?

At Gorvins, we’ve had many successes in obtaining occupation and non-molestation orders, and we understand the need to act quickly in these circumstances and can obtain an emergency order if appropriate.  Of course, we understand that each individual case is unique and that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to domestic violence. That’s why we adapt our approach according to the individual circumstances of each particular case, and will endeavour to make the process as stress free as possible.
