  • Helping a father who was accused of raping his estranged wife to have the allegations dismissed and his time with their children reinstated to a high level of shared care.
  • Supporting a mother who was a victim of domestic abuse and coercive control secure Findings against her former partner, resulting an order for no direct contact between the father and child.
  • Settlement of a case involving complex pension structures and issues of material non-disclosure.

Chrissy also works closely with our Fixed Fee delivery team, where the parties are in agreement about the way forward in relation to divorce and financial issues and simply need support with the paperwork.
