Success Stories and Publications
Our solicitor Rebekah Lines was approached on 27 December by a client seeking a recovery order for her 17-month-old child. The child was supposed to have spent time with his Father on Christmas Eve and been returned to the Mother’s care on the same day. Instead, the Father had messaged the Mother around lunchtime advising her that he would not be returning the child and that he would see her in court in the new year after the courts re-opened after the Christmas period.
Ms Lines immediately prepared and filed an Application seeking an urgent hearing, which was listed on the following business day. Ms Lines then succeeded in negotiating with the Father for the child's immediate return, with the Father to continue to spend time with the child as appropriate in the circumstances.
The Judge was very pleased with the result, which was in the best interests of the child.
