Acting for vulnerable mother

Family Court at Medway

John represented the respondent mother where a father had made an application for the child to live with him. His client needed support as because of her age, mental health, and having suffered domestic abuse by the father.

 John persuaded the court to order that the child should live with the mother, and arranged an incremental increase in contact with the father over a period of eight months, in a way that was both acceptable to the mother, and child-focussed.
