You’re not alone this Christmas

Christmas is always a difficult time for women experiencing domestic abuse. If you follow me on any one of my social media platforms, I’m sure you’ll know by now that I manage a refuge in London. I’ve been working tirelessly for 3 years now to help women break free from abusive cycles and to empower them to move on. I’ve seen so many horrific cases turn into situations to be celebrated. It’s tough but so rewarding.

The refuges are the most quiet around this period because Christmas is seen as an occasion for families. The reality of it is that nobody wants to be alone for Christmas. Victims will often continue to be abused just so that their children are settled over Christmas. No doubt it’s daunting leaving everything you own and love behind and having to start over.

For those that are in this situation and haven’t left, I just want to say that you’re not alone. I also want to say that help is out there. Slater and Gordon solicitors is home to the largest team of Family Lawyers in the country with offices across England & Wales. Whether you need some advice on Marriage, Divorce, Children, Separation or even The Legal System Slater and Gordon lawyers are so easy to get in touch with.

One of the things that comes up again and again with the women I work with is family law. Whatever difficult situation you’re in, it’s only natural that you have questions about what happens going forward. Since I’m not trained in the legal sector I am unable to advise the women I work with myself so I look to pointing them in the direction of reliable solicitors that have the right knowledge and experience. If you’ve got questions of your own then please see a professionally trained solicitor.

Slater and Gordon Solicitors have found that 42% of the people they surveyed have required legal assistance in family law.

With the new year fast approaching, take the steps that you need to work things out for the better. No family is perfect but with the right advice and steps in place you can make things perfect for you.
