Forced Marriages

At Arthurs Solicitors we can provide advice and assistance in relation to Forced Marriages. Forced marriage is illegal in England and Wales and it includes; taking someone overseas to force them to marry (whether or not the forced marriage takes place) and marrying someone who lacks the mental capacity to consent to the marriage (whether they are pressured to or not).

What is Forced Marriage?

Forced marriage is when you are subjected to physical pressure to marry (threats such as physical violence or sexual violence) or emotional and psychological pressure (e.g. bringing shame on your family).

We are contracted by the Legal Aid Agency and a Forced Marriage Protection Order can be applied for on an immediate emergency basis for your protection. If you would like to discuss matters urgently and discreetly kindly contact us now or call our offices on 01843 210377
