Facts of the Case

Mrs. C. and Mr. U. had their court marriage at the AMAC registry on November 10, 2012. They have a 7-year old daughter. Mr. U was HIV positive before he married Mrs. C but did not disclose his status to her. After a while Mr. C stopped taking his Anti-Retroviral drugs and started forcefully having sexual intercourse with Mrs. C without protection, thereby endangering her life.

Mr. U would constantly threaten her life, subject her to cruelty, seize her car that she bought herself, and was cruel in his conduct to her and their daughter. He not only subjected Mrs. C to constant physical, mental and emotional violence, he also constantly threatened her life. He withheld care, leaving her solely responsible for their daughterís welfare.

Mrs. Cís efforts to ettle the issue by seeking the intervention of the church and relations were to no avail. When she could no longer bear the Mr. Uís irresponsible behaviour, she sought the dissolution of her marriage and asked Lawyers Alert to file a divorce suit on her behalf against Mr. U, her husband. This was done on May 8, 2019. The date for hearing has not yet been fixed. Progress reports on the matter will be posted as the matter unfolds.
