Dealing with a Physically Abusive Spouse Who Threatens Eviction From Home

Experiencing violence or the threat of being kicked out of your own home by your spouse is a terrifying and traumatic situation that no one should have to face alone. At Adel Jibs & Co Solicitors, we understand the fear, confusion, and vulnerability you may be feeling.

Your safety and well-being are our top priorities, and we are here to provide the legal protection and support you need during this difficult time.

If you are a victim of domestic abuse, whether it’s physical, verbal, or emotional, the court can swiftly intervene to protect you. Through non-molestation orders and occupation orders, you can obtain comprehensive legal safeguards against further harm.

A non-molestation order, commonly known as a “non-mol,” is designed to shield you from harassment, threats, and violence. It can prohibit your abusive partner from contacting you directly, coming near you, or engaging in any form of intimidation. According to recent statistics, over 26,000 non-molestation orders were granted in England and Wales in 2020 alone, highlighting the prevalence of domestic abuse and the court’s commitment to protecting victims.

In conjunction with a non-mol, an occupation order can secure your right to remain in the family home, even if you are not the legal owner. This order can prevent your spouse from returning to the property or can divide the home into separate spaces for each party, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.

At Adel Jibs, we have extensive experience in helping clients navigate these frightening circumstances. Our compassionate and skilled family law solicitors will guide you through the process of obtaining these protective orders, gathering the necessary medical and psychological evidence to strengthen your case. We will work tirelessly to build a robust case on your behalf, ensuring that your voice is heard and your rights are protected.

Remember, breaking a non-molestation order is a criminal offence, and your abusive partner can be arrested immediately for violating the terms, even if no other crime has been committed. We will work closely with local law enforcement to ensure that the order is enforced and that you receive the protection you deserve.

In addition to court orders, we can also connect you with trusted providers of specialist security services, giving you an extra layer of protection and peace of mind both at home and in public.

It’s important to note that even if your spouse is not physically violent but threatens to “kick you out” or change the locks on your family home, they do not have the legal right to do so. Under the law, you have home rights that prevent them from excluding you, selling the property without your knowledge, or forcing you out.

At Adel Jibs & Co Solicitors, we are dedicated to helping you assert and protect your home rights, ensuring that you can continue to reside in your family home without fear of being uprooted.

If you are considering or going through a divorce and are facing violence or threats from your spouse, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We offer a free, confidential initial consultation with one of our experienced divorce solicitors who will listen to your story, assess your situation, and provide the guidance and support you need to move forward.

Remember, if you are in immediate danger, please contact the police right away. Your safety is paramount, and help is available. Together, we will work towards a safer, more secure future for you and your loved ones.
