Kathryn’s Story



Kathryn applied for assistance with a dissolution of marriage action after her estranged husband was arrested and adjudicated guilty of a violent crime involving a minor child.  Having sustained years of domestic violence during their relationship, she was ready to end the cycle of abuse, her marriage and the exposure of violence to her children.  After meeting with one of our staff attorneys, Kathryn was approved for full representation with her dissolution of marriage. Our office immediately collected the information necessary to file her divorce and have now begun the court action to obtain for Kathryn sole parental responsibility of the parties’ minor children, extremely restrictive timesharing or contact between the children and the Husband, a dissolution of marriage, support and other essential forms of relief.
