Example Case Scenario:
- Mother had refused contact of a 7-month-old daughter and had alleged domestic violence and Honour-based violence against the husband and his family and applied for a non-molestation application against him. In addition, she had given her maiden name as the surname for the child. Khalida was instructed by the Father to make an application for contact and to prevent the mother from taking the child outside the jurisdiction, Khalida also made a specific issue application to change the child’s surname to that of the father's. As a result, of the serious nature of the allegations, the courts ordered a detailed report (Section 37) by Social Services.
- This was a very difficult and stressful time for the father and his family. He had not seen his daughter for 5 months at this stage. Khalida supported him through this whole process and created a strong client-solicitor bond.
- Khalida prepared an excellent witness statement on behalf of the father, and the judge dismissed the molestation order, stated in court that she did not believe the honour based allegations and saw right through her that this was nothing more than a ploy to prevent contact. As a result, the mother agreed with immediate contact and agreed to change the child’s surname and include a chosen name by the father as a middle name.
