Domestic Abuse

  • Domestic abuse is one of the worst things that can happen in a relationship, and it is extremely important to get out of this relationship as fast as possible
  • Often, it is not as simple as leaving the relationship – especially if you are married.
  • You will often be afforded certain benefits by the court if your divorce is caused by abuse
  • Domestic abuse counts as full evidence that your relationship has broken down, and is grounds for divorce and separation
  • Sterling Law will help you every step of the way, both in separation and in custody, and property and financial matters.

Injunctions/Restraining Orders

  • Sterling Law is also experienced in the field of injunctions, and getting you legal protection if you are being abused domestically
  • Restraining orders are typically divided into injunctions
  • There are two types of injunctions in the UK:
  • Non-molestation orders, which protect both you and/or your child from being threatened, harmed, or otherwise abused by the person who has abused you
  • Occupation orders – prevents the person who is abusing you from living, or being near to, your home or the area surrounding
  • Breaking these orders will lead to arrest
  • You will need to view this as a criminal case – which means the police will be involved in proving the abuse and making sure you are protected
  • Sterling Law will help you write and review your application for an injunction, and make sure that it is successful and that you can feel safe.

    EEA family member: permanent residence application after refusal 23.03.2021

    Our client, a non-EEA national, initially obtained a residence card as the spouse of an EEA national. Our client subsequently divorced from his EEA national spouse and obtained a residence card under the Retained Rights route. The client then applied for permanent residence, which was refused and a subsequent appeal was dismissed by First-Tier Tribunal as the Judge wrongly thought the client needed to be a qualified person, not his EEA national spouse during the time their marriage lasted. Permission to appeal on this basis was granted.
