star this property answer text <p /> <p>Legal aid in England and Wales is available to victims of domestic violence where they need it to help break free from the abusive relationship. Access to legal aid for protective injunctions to prevent domestic violence remains identical to that prior to the legal aid reforms. These matters continue to be funded without the need for evidence. In private family law cases (such as child or financial arrangements) legal aid continues to be available where there is evidence of domestic violence or child abuse - the list of acceptable evidence is wide and comprehensive.</p><p> </p><p>In a recent judgment, the High Court found that the domestic violence evidential requirements are lawful and reflect the intention of Parliament in providing legal aid for those victims of domestic violence who require assistance because they will be intimidated or materially disadvantaged by having to face their abuser in court.</p> more like this

Any decision to review the overarching sentencing guideline on domestic violence is a matter for the Sentencing Council.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The overarching sentencing guideline on domestic violence makes clear that because an offence has been committed in a domestic context there are likely to be aggravating factors present which make it more serious. The guideline sets out in some detail certain aggravating, and mitigating factors, which are of particular relevance to offences committed in a domestic context. All courts must take this guideline into account, and they must also follow sentencing guidelines for individual offences. This makes sure that the courts have a consistent approach to the task of determining the appropriate sentence in each case.</p> more like this
