According to an evaluation by the ministries of the interior and the state criminal investigation offices, almost 161,000 people became victims of domestic violence in 2021, with two-thirds of those affected being women. However, it is assumed that there are far more victims than documented because being a victim of a violent crime triggers shame and fear in many of those affected.
German law offers several preventive measures under civil law to prevent domestic violence cases. Through the provisions of the Protection against Violence Act, victims can protect themselves from violent assaults and stalking.
To guarantee our clients quick and effective help in such a situation, the German law firm Schlun & Elseven offers competent and committed legal assistance. Our lawyers have excellent professional competence and the necessary empathy to make this emotionally demanding situation as pleasant as possible and to obtain your protection without delay.
