Representing a Mother seeking to have child returned to her care

Melanie represented the Respondent in a one-day final hearing.

The case involved modest assets, and the issue was whether the Respondent should get capitalised spousal maintenance and a greater share of the matrimonial assets, which was disputed by the Applicant.

Melanie was successful and the Court granted an Order in accordance with the Respondent’s open position for capitalised spousal maintenance and a greater share of matrimonial assets.
