The men hijacking family law reforms

The men hijacking family law reforms

Recently, I  was sent an  article  published in The Saturday Newspaper, which was titled ‘ The men hijacking family law reforms’, which then went on to say:

A coalition of men’s rights activists has captured the ear of the crossbench and is rewriting the Family Law Act by stealth.

Facebook, emails and the law

Facebook, emails and the law

I now advise my client’s to screen shot, and also print and save a hard copy of emails, as well as posts their partner makes about them on social media, for reasons I will explain.

In a recent trial, my client was accused of six counts of sexual assault (rape).

The complainant was his former wife.

The six allegations of forced sex were said to have occurred at about the time of the final separation.

Why Dads Matter?

Why Dads Matter?

“Why dads matter” is a brilliant article published in THE AUSTRALIAN (18.11.13). When it comes to the practice of family law I often read affidavit after affidavit after affidavit of complaint after complaint being made against my clients, who are often dads. A few years back I went along and attended some Dads in Distress meetings and witnessed firsthand the disenfranchisement and disempowerment some dads encounter as a result of them and their children being dragged through the family law system.

The article ‘Why dads matter’ is a reminder of the significant importance of father’s to their relationship with their children. The article focuses on the father-daughter relationship but the relationship between father- sons is equally important.
