I am a Litigation Executive in the Family law department where I specialise in private law children cases such as child arrangements, parental responsibility agreements, and appointing a guardian. I regularly act in relation to specific issue orders concerning a child (e.g. which school a child should attend) and prohibited steps orders (e.g. preventing the removal of a child from their carer, their home or the country), and have represented parents in child abduction cases, guiding them through what can be quite a complex court process. I also have extensive experience in cases involving domestic abuse and violence not only in relation to securing protection for victims but also representing people who have been accused of domestic abuse. These issues often impact on the parent’s ability to spend time with their children – in these situations, I can assist with negotiating child arrangements.
I have advised and assisted clients this area of law having worked in family law for over 30 years. I spent 11 years in a previous firm of solicitors in Croydon with Liz Edwards and Karen Bowey before moving to Amphlett Lissimore where I have continued to gain invaluable experience over the years having remained here since 1998. Much of my work comes from personal recommendations from previous clients and I receive many referrals from organisations with whom I have established close links with such as local women's refuges.
I am a member of Resolution and so always strive to resolve matters as amicably as possible using non-confrontational methods. When clients approach me to represent them, their situation is often a distressing and emotional one. My main objective is to always support and guide my clients to a better position and thereby a better outcome for them and their children.
If you have any concerns or queries over child arrangements, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
