Domestic Violence Lawyers in Manchester
If a person is charged with an offence against their partner or child, the Court will see this as an aggravating feature- in other words, it is seen as being more serious if you have assaulted your husband/wife or girlfriend/boyfriend.
Often in these cases, the alleged victim has not made a statement to the police, or has made a complaint “in the heat of the moment” but then wants to retract (withdraw) their statement and does not want their partner to be prosecuted. Despite this, it is the Crown Prosecution Service policy to take cases to trial even where there is no statement from the “victim”, and will even apply for a witness summons to make them attend for the trial.
When allegations like this are made, it has a massive impact on family life because the person accused is often prohibited from staying at their home address, or having any contact with the alleged victim.
With such a stressful time, it is important that you have a solicitor who is available to discuss your case when you need that support, as well as one who will fight for you in Court. The solicitors at Stephen Lickrish & Associates have experience representing people for assaults or criminal damage allegations in Greater Manchester, the North West, and throughout the country. We can advise on the best way to prepare and present your case, and will work hard to secure the best possible outcome.
