Our client endured an abusive 16 year marriage. Over time, the abuse increased in frequency and severity, and much of the abuse occurred in the presence of the couples' three children. When the husband threatened to kill her in the presence of her children, the client finally decided to leave. LSNV represented the client in obtaining a civil protective order that granted her exclusive use of the subidized apartment. LSNV also represented the client in requesting the local Housing Authority to terminate the husband from the subsidy. The client and her children continue to reside in their apartment, and they no longer endure domestic violence.
