At Lyons Davidson we can offer specialist advice about forced marriage issues where a marriage is about to, or has taken place, without the valid consent of both parties.

Urgent action is often required either to prevent a forced marriage taking place or to bring the victim home where the forced marriage has taken place abroad. Further steps can be taken to declare the marriage null and void and to protect the victim from further harm.

These proceedings need to be handled with expertise and sensitivity and our leading expert, Iona Phillips, can provide advice in this complex area.
