Cordell & Cordell CEO, Executive/Managing Partner Scott Trout recently joined solicitor Siobhan Vegh to break down protective orders and how they can be used in the United Kingdom during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They highlight the emotional complexities to a deteriorating marriage that may lead a spouse to use a protective order, in order to move forward in a divorce case.

Mr. Trout and Ms. Vegh talk about the stigma associated with men facing domestic abuse and how that may play a factor while quarantined during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ms. Vegh also identifies the different types of civil protective orders that can help someone facing a domestic abuse situation.

She also describes the protective measures that the police will take, in order to ensure the safety of both parties, including the possibility of arrest. She talks about how any breach of a protective order negatively can impact a divorce or child custody situation.
