Marina’s expertise is in Family Law and has experience in children’s matters. Marina has come from the Women’s Legal Service (SA) Inc. where she spent her first years as a solicitor gaining invaluable knowledge in complex Family Law matters and all issues relating to domestic violence. Marina has worked on a number of complex child custodial disputes including cases where:
- Previously made Court Orders with respect to children’s issues were set aside allowing for a significant increase in the time for her client;
- There were allegations of serious domestic violence, human trafficking, child abuse, drug use and sexual abuse;
- Her client was provided with an increase in time spent with the children after having previously been restricted or having no time at all;
- A Recovery Order was made to recover a child where the other parent had uplifted that child, this was with the assistance of the Australian Federal Police.
Marina seeks to have matters resolved efficiently and effectively, while paying attention to detail to her client’s needs.
