Homelessness – no forced return to matrimonial home. Council accept duty to house

Our client has two young children. Her marriage had broken down. She went to the council for housing who told her she was not homeless and must to go back and live with her husband.  Her husband would not allow her or her children back.  Moss & Co represented her and ensured that she was immediately provided with temporary accommodation by children services while at the same time making an appeal under 202 of the Housing Act to the County Court against the council’s decision. The council then accepted a duty to provide long-term accommodation to our client and her children.
