What is Domestic Abuse?
The term ‘Domestic Abuse’ is a wide-ranging general phrase which encompasses a range of different types of allegations which have allegedly occurred within a family or household.
Whether a criminal allegation is considered as a Domestic Violence incident will depend upon who has made the allegation and whether they are a family member, this can usually include married couples, partners, children, parents and siblings.
The types of allegations which may amount to domestic abuse against a family member or partner include:
- Sexual Allegations
- Emotional Abuse
Our law firm is ranked amongst the top tier of law firms in the United Kingdom with a top ranking in the category of Crime (which includes Driving Offence), the highest ranking that can achieved in the Chambers Guide.
The Legal 500 guide describes Kang & Co Solicitors as being “well adept at tailoring its resources to an individual case and investing heavily for the client. Legal advice is honest and the team always takes into consideration the views of the client.”
The Stages of an Investigation
Matters involving alleged domestic violence will usually begin with an initial report being made to the Police. This report can be made by the person alleging the abuse or a third party such as a neighbour, friend or work colleague. Once the Police have been made aware of a potential incident, they will begin their investigation.
The Police will usually obtain a statement from the alleged victim or from anyone else that may have witnessed the incident, this will usually follow with either an arrest or request to attend a Voluntary Police Station Interview Under Caution.
If you have been called to attend the Police Station for an Interview Under Caution, it is important to note that this is not simply a ‘chat with the Police’, it is a formal part of a police investigation which is recorded as evidence and will play a crucial role in whether a person is charged. If you have been asked to attend the Police Station and would like to secure specialist representation during your interview, please call us on 03308189825 or complete our Contact Form above.
