To get justice. My wife have been verbally abusing me since our marriage and her coming to UK . I have tried several times to descalate the rows we had and then I decided to work in distant places but recently she abused me again . I wonder how to get justice
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 7 months ago

If you meant that she says unpleasant things during arguments then that is not against the law. We all have rows. They are unpleasant. They are part of a relationship. If they are unacceptable to you then you are perfectly free to leave of course. That does not give you a cause of action in law.

if it is worse than that then you may be able to report it to the police.

Can I clarify anything for you? If you can ask a clearer question I may be able to offer more.
