Domestic Violence Cases


There is now a specialised domestic abuse court at Glasgow Sheriff Court. This is in recognition of how serious domestic incidents are being treated by the courts.

These incidents frequently occur between couples when they are under the influence of alcohol. Invariably and after the incident the alledged victim after reporting the incident to the police wishes the charges to be dropped against her partner or spouse.

When an accused person appears in court for a domestic offence the court will often impose special conditions of bail that they cannot contact or speak to their partner or spouse until the case is over. This can cause considerable difficulty. Especially if the parties have children. We can attempt to persuade the court that special conditions of bail are not necessary if your spouse or partner does not want them. If special conditions of bail are imposed we can approach the court to have these varied. Through a bail review.

If your spouse or partner wishes the charges dropped we can approach the Procurator fiscal to see if this can be done.

We have considerable experience in dealing with domestic offences and if the matter is unresolvable and you are of the view your partner is telling lies or putting forward a false position and you are innocent we can robustly defend you at trial.
