Legal Advice

Legal Advice

TDAS (Trafford Domestic Abuse Services) offers a free Legal Advice service which runs once, a week in our office in Old Trafford.

If you are suffering from domestic abuse you have a right to be protected under the law. There are several things you can do to protect yourself and stop the perpetrator causing you further harm.

Domestic abuse can be dealt with both under the criminal law and the civil law. The civil law is primarily aimed at protection of the victim. The criminal law is primarily aimed at punishing the offender/perpetrator

Trafford Domestic Abuse Services work in partnership with experienced solicitors who specialise in Family Law and issues in relation to domestic abuse. If you want free legal advice you can book an appointment through our office to attend our Legal Advice Service and meet with a female solicitor. This service is provided each Monday morning.

The Solicitor will be able to advise you on:
  • Domestic abuse
  • Divorce
  • Financial settlements
  • Injunctions
  • Disputes over children, including care, contact and residence proceedings
  • Immigration
  • Forced marriage
  • Housing
  • Civil law
  • Criminal law

Our legal Advice service is open to both women and men who live in the Trafford area who have been affected by domestic abuse. All appointments to attend the Legal Advice service are free of charge but you must book an appointment with us.

At your first appointment you will be asked to bring along some proof of your income or evidence that you are in receipt of benefits. You will be advised whether you are eligible for Public Funding (previously Legal Aid) or not.

Don't forget appointments must be booked in advance. For directions and details of when an appointment is available, please contact a Support Worker on 0845 241 1117.
