Success Stories and Publications

Name Change Obtained For Children

Our solicitor Susan Wild assisted a client who was seeking to change the surnames of three children.

The children wished to change their surname to that of their step-father and younger step-brother as they had been estranged for many years from their biological father who had been violent towards them and their mother.

The father contested the application and wished to cross-examine the children in court. Upon appearing at the hearing, Ms Wild was successful in obtaining the name change for the children without the need for them to go through the stress and difficulty of cross-examination.

The client said:

‘I’d like to personally thank everyone that worked on my case and got us the desired outcome.  It means so much to us and we can’t express to you how grateful we all are.’

Children Returned From Afghanistan to Mother

Our solicitor Susan Wild assisted a client whose children had been removed by the father and taken to Afghanistan.

Ms Wild filed an urgent application in the family court and succeeded in placing the children on the Airport Watchlist. This notification would alert airport authorities should the father re-enter Australia with the children.

After unsuccessful negotiations and two years of jurisdictional difficulties and language barriers, Ms Wild was successful in an application to have the children returned to Australia.

I urgently needed a lawyer for my second day's court attending. I called Go To Court Lawyers at 8am, and I secured an appointment in the afternoon. My lawyer gave me the advice and encouraged me to deal with it on my own, as I am unemployed and my case was pretty small. I appreciate the honesty, his consideration of my financial situation and his encouragement.
