Hello, I am presently going through a divorce from a coercive and controlling husband. This has been excruciating during lockdown where I have had the family car blow up as I drove my son to football practise, he has put the mortgage into arrears, he has kept all areas of the flat dirty and unkempt while he goes out regularly to spend time with another woman, he’s interrupted every single zoom meeting (and this is a man who hasn’t spoken to me in 4 years), and he controls and monitors all internet. He is also coercing the children to do as he wishes. My son is presently going through GCSEs and he’s disrupted a lot of his learning, and I’m very worried about my son’s emotional well being and what his outcomes will be.
The lawyers I instructed, I felt were delaying action and not paying attention to much of the control measures. A year later I still have no court date and they have refused to contact the court to ask for a court date.
And so I am looking for honest and impactful divorce lawyers, who care about the rights of women but are also able to back me up against what is a very bullying man.
