I am a domestic abuse survivor and I need your help. Please help me. 

As Domestic abuse spreads through the Uk like an invisible wild fire, The Private Family Law Court is adding to the spread. The following report from June 2020 is evidence which shows a system failing to safeguard victims.

Our family court system is simply a factory, that enables a perpetrator to continue their abuse. Whilst there is a side to the factory that functions well, there is an urgent need for the side of this factory that puts victims at risk to be shut down. This must end. 

The current system allows a perpetrator to legally continue their abuse, keeping the victim under threat and silence through the court process.  

There is a URGENT need for Change in the way Domestic Abuse cases are dealt with within the private family law court. With lockdown restrictions domestic abuse is spiralling out of control, we must support our survivors and create a fair arena for the reality of each individual case to be heard and dealt with safely. 

I as a Mother with genuine concerns for the welfare of my children and myself,  I stand against a system that is failing to protect us.

I have saved us once, I will save us again.

Please stand with me.

Stand for Verity.
