Domestic Violence and Harassment


If you are a victim of domestic abuse or harassment, the law is there to protect you. Platt Halpern has a specialist team of solicitors in Manchester ready to provide urgent representation where necessary, offering practical advice on the ways you can ensure the safety of you and your family.

We have worked in this area for many years. We know the trauma that victims of domestic abuse go through, and we work hard to provide a supportive and caring environment where, in your own time, you can tell us what has happened to you.

Domestic Abuse and Threats Of Violence

We specialise in obtaining injunctions and other court orders to protect you and your children, and, if necessary, to exclude someone from your home. In particular, we can obtain emergency orders, including:

  • Non-molestation orders — to stop your partner using violence or threatening violence against you or your children
  • Occupation orders — to prevent your partner entering your home and the area around it

Forced Marriage Protection Lawyers Serving Rusholme

We also work on behalf of people threatened with forced marriage. Members of our family team speak several languages, including Bangla, Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi. We are highly experienced in using interpreters to understand fully the needs of those clients who don’t speak English.

English courts can stop forced marriages taking place. If you or someone you know is being forced to marry, our solicitors can advise and represent you at court in relation to Forced Marriage Protection Order proceedings.

Often our clients are subjected to extreme violence and intimidation — some are held against their will. We handle these cases with the care and sensitivity needed and give good legal advice to help you deal with your situation and any risk of harm.
