Our solicitor Lisa Riley assisted a client in an urgent recovery order hearing. The Recovery Order was granted by the court in favour of our client.
Ms Riley then assisted same client in an urgent application made by the other party to have the Recovery Order dismissed and the child delivered to the mother. After a four and a half hour hearing in the Family Court, the child was not ordered to be returned to the mother and the Recovery Order is still in place.
Our solicitor Lisa Riley assisted a 37-year-old client seeking to suspend the enforcement of a judgment against her.
The client had had a judgment for $20,000 plus $14,000 interest entered against her in respect of a business loan she had received from her ex-partner. The court had initially refused her application for a suspension order as it was not satisfied that she was suffering financial hardship.
Ms Riley convinced the court to adjourn the matter to allow the client time to gather more evidence of her financial situation. The matter is back in court in August.
