Case Study – The Destitution Domestic Violence (DDV) Concession

Virgo Solicitors Limited assisted a victim of domestic violence who was seeking indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom. The case was problematic because the client’s perpetrator was not found guilty of domestic violence. Notwithstanding, as a result of sound advice and assistance rendered, the client was able to collate substantial and persuasive formal documentary evidence in the form of a letter from Chair of a Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) including medical reports, a police report and a letter from a Domestic Violence support organization which were all favourably considered and deemed acceptable by the Secretary of State for the Home Department.
