How do I go about getting a divorce
I need to know how to go about getting a divorce. Married for a year now. My husband refuse to leave the house despite me saying I want a divorce. He is physically and emotionally abusive.
Evening Kerisha P,
- You are advised to immediately go to the local police station and lay a charge of assault against your husband,
- You are advised to the go to the local magistrates court to obtain a protection order in respect of the physical and emotional abuse,
- You are advised to see either a private lawyer or if you cannot afford one to seek the assistance of the local Legal Aid Board if you qualify for it.
