Domestic Assault in Scotland is defined as ‘any form of physical, sexual or mental and emotional abuse which might amount to criminal conduct and which takes place within the context of a relationship.’ The relationship can be between partners (married, cohabiting, civil partnership or otherwise) or ex-partners and can take place in the home or elsewhere.
If you have been charged with a domestic assault charge you should get in touch with our expert solicitors as soon as possible. The consequences of being arrested, charged or convicted on a domestic abuse charge are that in certain professions (such as teachers, doctors and lawyers) it is a requirement to disclose this information. It can also be a risk to your reputation or business, even if your case is disproved. Our solicitors will work hard to ensure you get the best possible outcome.
Domestic Abuse Defence Solicitors Glasgow
Domestic abuse is verbal or non-verbal violence towards partners or spouses, children or elders in the household. The government’s ‘zero tolerance’ approach to domestic abuse has meant that more cases than ever are brought to the court in Scotland. If domestic abuse allegations have been made against you, it is important you speak to a solicitor as soon as possible. The right representation from the beginning can make all the difference in a domestic abuse situation. What could simply be a ‘domestic’ argument could be interpreted as domestic abuse, which is why it is crucial you speak to a solicitor as soon as you can. Our expert solicitors have dealt with many domestic abuse cases and will advise you on the best approach to maximise your chances of a successful outcome.
Stalking Defence Solicitors Glasgow
If you have had stalking allegations made against you, it is important you speak to a solicitor as soon as possible. Stalking can range from what can first-off seem as unthreatening repeated behaviour such as sending gifts and hanging around the victim's home or place of work or neighbourhood, to explicit threats and actual attacks on the complainer or their property. The behaviour can also be towards other family members. This is known as 'stalking by proxy'. Stalking can result in Interdicts and Non-Harassment Orders being served, but can also lead to fines or a prison sentence. Our solicitors have the expertise and knowledge in this field to represent you and ensure that you have the best possible defence. Speak to one of our solicitors today.
