I applied for divorce on the grounds of domestic abuse in Feb 2012. Has been with the solicitor for 7 months and not happy with the way things have been going (me and son had to move out of FMH because of abuse). This has been a Legal Aid case. I need to limit child''s contact arrangements (son does not want to see him during the week) and would like other solicitor''s firm deal with this, although they agree to take my child''s contact case on a legal aid basis, but say i need to take a bank loan 5-10 thousand to pay the work on financial settlement. I am a part time working mum, no savings, and quite shocked at the amount i was told to borrow.Could you please advise what i should do. Thank you so much. lena
See you have had no replies as yet - so thought I would. Re the divorce, are you saying that you petitiioned in Feb, and not even had Nisi yet? I would also strongly suggest you take steps to move back to house - in cases of domestic violence, you can apply for a non-mol and occupancy order - but the longer you leave it and living elsewhere.... Hope this helps.
