This case was one of the most expensive cases that I am aware of from the Christchurch Family Court. Both parties spent about 700,000 between them during the 10 year battle.
The High Court ruled this case as 'extraordinary'. Another High Court hearing into the case made the Judge 'livid' with the process of the Family Court. It's seems the High Court are forever telling the Family Court off. It is almost coming to the point where the High Court really need to be in charge as the District Court Judges are struggling to understand the basics!
This is a media interview with the mother about the case.
