In our second episode of the series brought to you by Ince, in any case, we re-cap from our previous episode and delve beyond non-molestation orders to domestic violence. Due to changes in the law there have been significant changes to the legal definition of domestic abuse.
Jack explains the way in which domestic violence affects legal proceedings within the family court. We touch on the gendered notion of domestic violence and highlight the importance for male victims of abuse as in the case of Jordan Worth and Alex Skeel. We review the significance of the Domestic Abuse Bill and how this will encourage further access for justice, for those who need it.
