For all your Family Law and/or Mediation assistance call me at Brazel Moore Family Lawyers/Central Coast Mediation Services - 43247699z

I have the following dates available for mediation 30 June, 6, 7, 15, 17, 20-24, 27 and 28 July. Mediations can be conducted in person, by telephone or by Zoom.
Today, with the assistance of 2 amazing lawyers, I was able to assist parties come to an agreement with their family law matter. When parties are able to mediate and come to their own agreements they don’t lose control of how their matter is finalised and are able to resolve matters on their terms rather than having orders imposed on them by a person (a Judge) who has no knowledge (other than what they read in Affidavit material or evidence from a witness box) of them. Mediation is a great alternative to lengthy Court proceedings. For all you mediation needs - contact me on 43247699.
Our awesome family law team on m***i Friday....We may have moved from this space in the office and might be a little louder to those around us (sorry Tam and Sophie) but we’re still the same amazing team. We are fully functional back in the office and all precautions are being taken with respect to COVID19. For all your family law enquiries please do not hesitate to telephone either me, Sue or Bonnie and for all your mediation needs please do not hesitate to contact Bonnie - 4324 7699.

CASE STUDY – DE FACTO WIFE SPENDS LIFE SAVINGS ON PARTNERS PROPERTIES

Background

Our client – the de facto wife, had been in a relationship and living with her partner for 4 years.

The de facto husband owned a property at the commencement of their relationship and purchased another property during the relationship.

In the course of the relationship, our client expended her life savings towards mortgage repayments, living expenses and the personal loans in the name of the de facto husband.

Our client came to our office for assistance when she was told that she was not entitled to a property settlement after separation. Read more at https://familylawgosford.com.au/family-law-blog/case-study-de-facto-wife-spends-life-savings-on-partners-properties/

After separation, some couples whether married or de facto, choose to continue to live together in the family home until they have resolved their parenting and property matters. In family law terms this is called being “separated but living under one roof”. Parties may choose to continue living together for practical and economic reasons as well as to make life easier for their children.

But what can you do if living together is just not possible? For example, if your separation has been especially hostile or there are issues of family violence living together may simply not be suitable or safe. Additionally, it is not in the best interests of children to expose them to continued argument and discussion.

Many people think that commencing proceedings in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia is simple: parties each engage a lawyer, tell their side of the story and the matter is resolved by the Court without a second thought.

What they don’t know is that there is a set of processes that both parties must complete before even approaching the Court called ‘pre-action procedures’. When these procedures are followed correctly, they can speed up the Court process by allowing each party to figure out what the main issues are for resolution. Even better, following the pre-action procedures may even allow parties to resolve their family law matter without needing the assistance of the Court at all.

How does Covid 19 affect Commercial or Retail Leases?

Non-payment of rent would ordinarily amount to a breach of the Lease by a tenant (“Lessee”) and allow a landlord (“Lessor”) to take certain actions against the tenant, such as to terminate the lease and recover funds owing. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has seen changes to our laws in this area.

Coercive Control is still Domestic Violence.

In the 2017–19 NSW Domestic Violence Death Review Report, 99% of domestic violence-related homicides were characterised by coercive control.

Research by Professor Evan Stark, the sociologist who developed the concept of coercive control, found 60-80 per cent of women who seek help for abuse have experienced it.

Judge rebuked for 'cruel, insulting, humiliating' conduct in family law trial 03/09/2020

Judge rebuked for 'cruel, insulting, humiliating' conduct in family law trial

Litigation can be stressful and emotions high. Lawyers have a duty to behave in a courteous manner to each other.

Similarly Judges are required to behave in a temperate balanced manner, in often emotionally inflamed circumstances, to ensure that litigants can have a fair trial without any allegations of bias.

In a recent appeal in a property and parenting matter before the Full Court of the Family Court, the Judge was found to have berated the Queen's Counsel acting for the Father to point that the Full Court said the Judge’s interventions, his cruel, insulting, humiliating and rude interactions with the father’s Queen’s Counsel and his solicitor, amounted to an abuse of the power of his position.

In this case, Adacot & Sowle [2020] FamCAFC 215 (28 August 2020), the Appeals Court found that "the nature, intensity, frequency and content of the ..judge’s interventions and remarks to the lawyers for the father gave rise to an apprehension of bias and had the effect of denying him a fair trial."

Family Violence is a community crisis. 1 woman per week, 1 man per month and 1 child per fortnight are killed at the hands of an intimate partner or family member each year. 61% of women had children in their care when the violence occurred. 1 in 3 of the 21,400 hospitalisations for assault injuries were a result of family and domestic violence.

The Family Court and Federal Circuit Court have announced the launch of the ‘The Lighthouse Project’ to triage and risk assess, triage and case manage matters where domestic and family violence is an issue in several registries around Australia.

Unfortunately a large proportion of family law matters involve issues of domestic and family violence which has often been ongoing for many years.

If you are experiencing domestic or family violence, contact our office on 4324 7699 and our family lawyer Michelle Meares can assist you.

The question of who is a parent is what the High Court of Australia was asked to consider when it heard an appeal in April 2019 in the case of Masson v Parsons and Ors.

The child was conceived by way of artificial conception in 2006. The s***m donor (the “Appellant”) was a friend of the Mother. The Mother was not in a relationship with her current parent at the time of conception. The Appellant had been involved in the child’s life since the time of her birth, was registered on her birth certificate and she referred to him as ‘Daddy’.

Recently Kate Walker began running her Mediations via Zoom. She recently received this feedback from another accredited specialist family lawyer -

I just wanted to thank you personally for your assistance in running the mediation last week. It was a long day and was more challenging due to the process of zoom. However, I think you managed all parties wonderfully and that it was the right outcome as the family can now more forward.

It's always nice to receive great feedback.

With the current Covid 19 Crisis, the Family Court and Federal Court of Australia are now moving to conducting necessary hearings by video link. The following information has has been issued by the Courts to assist in this unusual situation -

GUIDANCE FOR ATTENDANCE OF A WITNESS AT A COURT
HEARING BY VIDEO LINK TO GIVE EVIDENCE
For the purpose of this guidance, a witness includes a party.
1. The behaviour and manner of a witness should be the same as if they were attending the Court hearing in person. This includes addressing the judge correctly -“Your Honour” - and counsel politely and courteously.
2. The witness will be sworn or affirmed by the judge prior to commencement of their evidence.
3. It is expected that the witness has had explained to them the distinction between an oath and an affirmation and be able to say immediately whether they wish to make an oath or an affirmation. If an oath is chosen, the witness should be requested to have available any religious text if they would like to have one.
4. A witness is to be alone, in a secure room with doors closed.
5. A witness should have recently re-read all affidavits or statements made by him or her in these proceedings and have a clean copy of those documents with them. Counsel will be able to electronically refer the witness to a document through the OneDrive folder or Microsoft Teams.
6. The witness is to ensure that there will be no interruptions or distractions for the duration of the video appearance at the hearing.
7. A witness may have a glass of water with them but a witness is not to permitted to eat or to drink anything else during the course of the hearing, without permission of the judge to do so.
8. The witness may take notes and have pen and blank paper for doing so but the taking of note will not be permitted to impede the flow of the evidence.
9. The party cross examining the witness is to ensure that the witness has all documents to which they may be referred. This means that a cross examiner must know in advance what documents will be shown to the witness and ensure that those documents are available to the witness in a timely way. Again, this can be facilitated through the use of a OneDrive folder setup.
10. A witness must say when they are fatigued. Having regard to international time zones, a witness should not give evidence when the witness would usually be asleep.
11. A witness should dress as if they were attending Court.
12. A witness must have the lap top computer used during any test run conducted by the Court.
13. Recording the evidence, the proceedings or any part of the proceedings is strictly prohibited and doing so will constitute a contempt of Court.
