- Successfully acted for a father seeking a 50/50 equal shared care arrangement. The complication with this case was that the eldest child would turn 16 prior to any final order/ hearing. It was important for the order to cover this child as she had neurodiversity challenges. I personally represented the father at the final hearing where we secured a joint lives with order (50/50) child arrangements order which included the 16 year old despite her age.
- Successfully defended a non-molestation order and occupation order application. I personally represented the client at court and was able to obtain cross-undertakings and my client was able to remain living in the family home, which was in the best interest of the child.
- I acted for a client who could not sell his property as his estranged wife had registered a Notice of home rights (HR1) on the property Land Registry title despite it not being their family home. I successfully argued that this notice was incorrectly registered and against the spirit and nature of what such notice is there to achieve if used correctly. I negotiated for the notice to be removed quickly without the needing to resort to a court application thereby enabling my client to proceed with his property sale.
- Successfully negotiated the terms of a cohabitation agreement for my client who was moving into her partner’s home and keeping her own property as a rental. We negotiated fair and proportionate changes to the proposed terms without causing any tension in the relationship.
