Use this letter to get proof that a doctor referred you to a domestic violence support unit, if you're applying for legal aid.
To get a copy of a document referring you to a domestic violence specialist support service, you should:
- fill in the sample letter as much as you can
- send it to the support service or to the doctor (or other health professional) who referred you
You can use this as evidence if you’re applying for legal aid to help you divorce or separate from an abusive partner.
It won’t count if you were referred more than 5 years ago.
