Helping a father re-establish contact

Children – Public Law

28 November 2023

Ronald represented a father in private law proceedings where the mother was reluctant to agree to the children seeing the father.

The mother’s position was that the children had decided that they no longer wanted to see their father. Ronald’s client had been offered a ‘take it or leave it’ contact arrangement of a maximum of three hours per week on a weekend day. The mother was now upset with Ronald’s client for pursuing his application for more time to see the children.

Through sensitive representation and negotiation, Ronald was able to obtain a comprehensive contact order for the father, which included overnight time with his children.
