Peale & Peale [2020] FamCA 558; (9 July 2020)

Read our recent final judgment delivered by Justice Watts of the Family Court of Australia in relation to a litigious parenting and property mater.

We acted for the mother of a 15.5 year old child with five co-morbid disabilities and the Court awarded her a 62.5% property adjustment on a final basis which allowed her to retain the property in which they resided with the assistance of family.

This client was very relieved and happy with the outcome after many years in the judicial system.
