Recent Cases

I have represented many clients on a direct access basis, some from the beginning of their cases and others at the very end for a final trial.

Some examples of my most recent cases and their outcomes are below.

Children Act Cases - Acting for Mothers

5 July 2019

My client and her former husband were unable to agree how their daughter’s time should be divided between them. I was involved in a number of complex court hearings were the court was asked to consider how the child’s needs could best be met where her parents lived some distance apart. We were able to put together a complex arrangement that minimised the disruption for the child and allowed her to divide her time fairly equally between her parents.

Children Act Cases - Acting for Fathers

5 July 2019

My client had been looking after his 2 young children for a number of years after their mother moved out. Unexpectedly she applied to the court for an order that they moved to live with her. The mother’s application was initially supported by the court welfare officer. Following a trial where the mother pursued her claim for the children to live with her the court made an order that they should stay living with my client.

My client has not been able to see his baby daughter for 10 months because her mother was preventing all contact. I obtained an order that reinstated contact and that will allow father and daughter to spend extended periods of time together.

Acting for Intervenors

5 July 2019

My client put money into properties that were registered in his brother’s name. His sister-in-law made a claim that would have deprived my client of his life savings. After a trial where a number of witnesses gave evidence that supported my clients case I was able to negotiate an agreement that meant my client kept all his interest in the properties.

--------------------

My elderly clients have invested substantial sums over many years in property that is held in their son’s name but which was always intended to provide for them in their old age. I was asked to consider all the documentation that supports their case and to draft applications to the court to help them to ensure that they keep their assets.

Financial Cases

5 July 2019

Represented a wife who’s husband was seeking an order that would have forced her to sell her home after a very short marriage where he made limited financial contributions. I obtained an order that provided for my client to make a small payment to her husband that meant she could keep her home. Her husband’s application for leave to appeal was unsuccessful.
