Successfully represented a wife who issued divorce proceedings, and sought protection from an abusive partner by issuing a Non-Molestation Order.
Successfully represented a mother who wanted to relocate with two young children. Although the father initially did not agree to the move, the mother was granted permission by the Courts following an application for a Specific Issue Order.
Successfully represented a father who had no access to his child when he initially instructed Gabrielle. She drafted his Child Arrangements Application and prepared the documents for his Court hearing. After the first hearing, the father had weekly visits and by the end of the proceedings, had been granted overnight stays.
Successfully issued divorce proceedings against a husband who refused to return the Acknowledgment of Service during divorce proceedings but who confirmed receipt by email. Gabrielle acquired permission from the Court to have the documents that had been sent by email deemed as served, in order for the divorce proceedings to continue. During the Financial Arrangements, Gabrielle secured a Court Order for the transfer of the matrimonial home into the sole name of her client.
After graduating from the University of Nottingham, Gabrielle studied the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law, London. In 2016, she completed her training contract and qualified as a Solicitor in a North West London law firm. She joined Co-op Legal Services in Manchester in 2017.
