Legal Help Made All the Difference

When Natasha came to CCS, her wrist was broken by her husband and he had taken their son out of state. In her mind, because she was not born in the United States, all the rights she had were dictated by her husband who controlled her every move. Natasha also takes care of two daughters, and while the girls bring her much joy and comfort, she was pained by not seeing her son for more than a year.

CCS attorneys worked with Natasha to figure out the best strategy since she did not have a restraining order and did not report the abuse to the police. It’s been almost a year now since we met with Natasha. After what seemed like a multitude of court hearings and legal consultations, she gained full custody of all her children, with child support, and is well on her way to having her divorce finalized. She has since gone back to school and hopes to start her own business.
