The Charges: Parenting Matter
Court Attended: Federal Circuit Court of Australia at Brisbane
Attendance Date: 29/11/17
Overview of Case: We act for the father in a parenting dispute. The father has significant concerns regarding the mother’s new partner due to the new partner’s extensive criminal history and propensity for violence towards women and children. The partner has breached Domestic Violence Orders on numerous occasions and continues to do so.
Mother claims that the new partner is not a risk to the children despite evidence of domestic violence between her and the new partner that is ongoing with regular police involvement and wants her new partner to be allowed near her children.
Outcome: Successfully argued to continue an injunction against the mother’s new partner from being allowed within 100m of the children and was successful in having the distance increased to 500m, with no increase of time between the mother and the children.
