Frequently asked questions


Who are Flag DV?

We are a charity, staffed mostly by volunteers,with the purpose of supporting people to make informed choices by providing free legal advice from qualified lawyers on matters of Family Law, such as domestic abuse, divorce and financial matters, Child Contact and other related family matters. We do this through face to face clinics and telephone consultations.


Am I eligible?

You can receive free legal advice from us if you are aged 18 or over and have experienced violence or abuse or incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour from someone who is or has been your intimate partner, or a family member, regardless of gender or sexuality. Controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour may mean physical or sexual abuse. It may also mean financial abuse, emotional abuse or psychological abuse.


What happens when I call you?

When you call, you will be offered access to practical support from a local domestic abuse service. Should you wish, details can be taken from you and a referral to us can also be made. We will then contact you to offer a convenient time to discuss the choices you have. We may offer an appointment at our clinic or a telephone appointment. When we talk you will speak with a qualified lawyer who will listen without judgement, and will advise you on your options in law. The information and advice you receive will help you make the right decision for your circumstances. All information you give us and advice you receive will be in confidence.
