Client Story - Mary
When “Mary” (not her real name) finally reached out to for help she was distraught, she had recently obtained an injunction for protection against her husband due to the domestic violence and abuse she had suffered in her marriage. Mary desperately wanted a different life for herself and her two small children but did not know where to begin.
Mary reached out to Florida Rural Legal Services (FRLS) because she knew that she had to end the abuse once and for all. She needed to divorce her husband but could not afford an attorney.
A FRLS attorney represented Mary in the divorce proceedings where she obtained child support, exclusive use and possession of the marital home, a safe parenting plan for her children, and most importantly a new beginning to live a life free from violence and control.
