Family Solicitors Suffolk – Legal measures against domestic abuse

Nicola Furmston

‘Domestic abuse happens in many marriages and civil partnerships and divorce solicitors need to be alert to the possibility of incidents occurring at the point of separation and after. In the last week a husband has admitted to killing his wife after she said she wanted a divorce.  Domestic abuse comes in many forms, not just physical violence but in emotional, psychological and financial forms too. Good solicitors are mindful of this, take care to ensure that their actions do not exacerbate already difficult situations and know what legal measures are available to protect their clients.’
