Following 6 years of marriage, and six years of being subjected to domestic violence, I have now decided to start divorce proceedings. Because my husband was holding a good job, I did not want to complain to the police as I didnt want anything to effect his job prospects and future. The only grounds I have to base my divorce is his violent behaviour, but I am afraid if this could effect his criminal record. Does anyone know if I base my divorce on the grounds of assault and domestic violence, can the court order him to be arrested or charged?

Well it depends on intensity of domestic voilence that is proved in the court. However, the question is if your husband is not afraid of losing his job, why are you so concerned about it.

The easy way out is to tell him that you would go to court for a divorce and during the proceedings he can lose his job. If he wants to avoid all that, he should settle everything with you out of court. The threat of losing a job will definitely bring him to a mutual adjustment.
