As an experienced Family Lawyer I pride myself on being able to navigate complex structuring and taxation documents and understanding the roles different trading and structuring entities play in people’s financial lives. My time in Sydney in particular has also afforded me valuable experience in running (and opposing) spousal maintenance applications.
I also regularly assist parents with various parenting dilemmas including establishing manageable parenting arrangements, negotiating flexible parenting scenarios for clients who have particularly demanding work schedules and litigating matters where negotiations are unsuccessful or unsuitable. Often parenting disputes are accompanied by concerns regarding Child Support and I also have considerable experience in negotiating, drafting and advising on Binding Child Support Agreements and Limited Child Support Agreements, as well as appealing Child Support assessments and obtaining Child Support departure orders.
I was drawn to Family Law with the promise of a challenging and rewarding role. As no two families or relationships are the same, no two days as a Family Lawyer are the same either, and I enjoy the excitement and challenges the diversity in my role presents. The best part of my job is definitely being able to see the relief on a client’s face at the end of a Family Law matter, and knowing that I have contributed to that person being able to move on with their life and foster a new beginning.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and two Labradors, soaking up everything South-East Queensland has to offer. We keep a busy social schedule and enjoy cooking, entertaining and watching AFL, rugby and cricket in our spare time.
