Protection for an abused wife

Family Injunctions

29 November 2023

Melanie represented a wife who had been subject to mental and physical abuse from her husband for the entirety of their 40-year marriage and had only recently found the strength to leave. The couple had children and grandchildren together and both parties were in ill-health.

Melanie was able to help her vulnerable client through the process of ensuring that Occupation and non-molestation orders were successfully put in place, enabling her to finally separate and live in a protected and peaceful way.
