Case 1: International Family Law and Children
Our client, the Father, heard on the grapevine that his newly separated wife and newborn were going to leave Australia to a country not part of the Geneva Convention. Prior to separation, they had intentions to travel overseas, so that the extended family could meet their new baby. This is why our client consented to the child’s passport.To ensure that his ex-spouse and newborn baby did not leave Australia, our client came into our offices and spoke to one of our senior family law solicitors. After giving him the preliminary advice needed, he made the decision to instruct Platinum Lawyers and make an urgent application in the Federal Circuit Court to place his newborn on the Airport Watch List. We also helped our client to file and send the AFP Watch List application form. Within days of filing, we received information that the Mother did indeed attempt to leave Australia without our client’s knowledge or consent.Lucky our client and Platinum Lawyers acted fast, or he would have never seen his child again.

I got the result I wanted with the best legal team.
Case 7: Care Proceedings
DOCs had taken my daughter away when she was only 1 years old only allowing me to visit her once every few months, I did have a drug problem but made sure I attended as many classes about drug rehabilitation to clean myself up to get my daughter back.

Platinum Lawyers worked hard to get my daughter back.
