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.

Communication was great from start to finish. I cannot fault them in any way, the only solicitor to go above and beyond. I would recommend anyone to use this firm, incredible. Such professionalism, they are right on top of getting you JUSTICE, not stealing your money like all of the others. They know their law, they show it in court and they advise you every step of the way, your never in the dark. I wish we had of found you before wasting money on countless other solicitors. You're only as good as your solicitor, that's the best advice I can give anyone. They have given so much of our life back, we were going to give up, we thought we had lost, then we found them, how lucky were we. Thank you so much.

Ows it goin. Yes I was relieved to b able to speak of my experience and b listend to with open minds and of a non-bias approach. All the staff I av spoken to at GTC av been friendly and helpful. I don't do any of this as a cover up of any of my behavior, I am fed up with bein lied to and about. Very nice fellas and I av confidence in confiding with/to em both. Ther assistant is a nice lady too. Has given me extra time of his to help and I am very appreciative of him doin so. I must say the "system" needs a re-vamp in regards to the person protected and or application and of VRO's to b held accountable for communication during an order of which they have askd for to protect them... Thanku for ur svc's,

I've had a very unique case that required an expert advice in a very short notice as I was about to board a plane for an overseas offshore. I desperately discussed my case with Go to Court and surprisingly I've got a call from one of the greatest lawyer ever on Friday night saying he's happy to see me over weekend. Yeah, over the weekend!!! He sat with me on Saturday, reviewed my case and promised he will get back to me before my flights on Sunday. Long story short, not only I was pleased with their professional commitment, my case was resolved sooner than expected. Such a great team, such a great expertise. Highly recommended.
