Mother accuses father of financial coercion in proceedings for parenting orders – which case won?
A man and woman married in mid-2002 and subsequently had two children, one in 2002 and the other in 2010.
The mother and father experienced difficulties throughout the course of their marriage.
After they split for the first time in 2004, the mother and the older child moved to Thailand.
The couple later reconciled and began living together again in Australia in June 2006.
They separated again in February 2012 and the father commenced proceedings in the Family Court for parenting orders.
In responding to the proceedings, the mother alleged that the father had subjected her to financial coercion.
