Ellis Hass & Co acted for a father of 2 children, aged 12 and 15 following the breakdown of his marriage. We were instructed in an emergency situation as the older child did not want to return to live with his mother as she had started to live with her new partner and he had brought his 2 children to live in the former matrimonial home (which had become somewhat cramped). The mother made an application to the court which we defended and as the child was able to articulate his wishes to the Court Welfare Services Officer an appropriate order was made allowing the older child to reside with his father and stay with his mother when he wanted to do so.
“I instructed Ellis Hass following a recommendation from a friend. The solicitor was able to represent my interests by standing up to my former wife’s application and helping me to make sure that the court listened to my son’s wishes.
Their patience and tenacity to see the case through even in most difficult of circumstances helped me to get the right result allowing my son to live with me, for which I am eternally grateful.”
