Weekly Snapshot Issue: 50 – 18 October 2019

Case we are reviewing…

How does the Court consider one the act of one party sending an ‘allowance’ overseas in financial support of his or her extended family members? 

This question was considered in our previously discussed case of  Aishjaim & Gapser [2019].

Apparently, these payments may amount to a waste and that money should be ‘added back’ for a proper fair and equitable division of property to be made. 

Article of the week… 

In this  inspiringspeech Sydney Barrister Sharna Clemmet discusses her journey to an audience of the students in the high school she attended. She admits, for the first time in 21 years, that she is a high school dropout who organically fell into and loved law after a history of ‘shit kicker jobs’.   

She cautions families and schools against overwhelming students with expectations and reminds the prospective year 12 students of Kadina high Lismore that  ‘the HSC is only one period of your life that should not define you’. 

Book we are reading… 

We are not the band wagon type of gals, but this week we are all on the bandwagon that is  The Testamentsby Margaret Atwood (and that was before it was pronounced the joint winner of the 2019 Man Booker Prize).

Gilead has now fallen and we get a glimpse into what caused its collapse. Let’s just say we did not see it coming. 

Ted talk we are sharing …

When you wander about the advice you’ll give your daughters, watch this  Ted talk 

Masters of Success…
