Domestic Violence

Domestic violence and abuse is unacceptable and addressing the issue is a priority for the government.

The cross-government definition for England and Wales of domestic violence and abuse is:

'any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to:

  • psychological
  • physical
  • sexual
  • financial
  • emotional

Controlling behaviour

Controlling behaviour is a range of acts designed to make a person subordinate and/or dependent by isolating them from sources of support, exploiting their resources and capacities for personal gain, depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape and regulating their everyday behaviour.

Coercive behaviour

Coercive behaviour is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim. This is not a legal definition.

If you or someone you know are experiencing domestic violence or abuse, are being threatened with violence by your partner, Bradshaw Legal can advise you of the options available to you, and, if applicable, your children.

The Law is there to protect vulnerable people and Bradshaw Legal offer free consultations to provide you with suitable Legal and practical options. In addition, there are many victim support organisations we are able to connect you with.
