Legal Rights

There are two kinds of help you can get from the legal system, -criminal or civil litigation processes. Through the criminal justice system, you can rely on the police, and the Crown Prosecution’s services. If you plan to attend court, the the workers in your refuge or women’s rights advocates may accompany you to court. Through civil law, you’ll have to begin researching subjects, such as what sort of effect this will have on your immigration status, as well as which solitor is right for you, and an injunction to protect you and your children from your abusive partner.
