Surveillance reveals more than expected

19-October-2009 Family Law By Mark Streeter

The Situation

A wife suspected that her husband was having an “affair” online.

The Solution

By use of lawful surveillance methods it was ascertained that it was much worse than this. The husband was viewing child pornography. The matter was reported to the police and urgent action taken in the Family Court to preserve and protect the child of the relationship.

Testimony – Mark Streeter Sydney Lawyer

I recently agreed on a property settlement with my spouse. During the preparation beforehand and negotiation during the mediation, Mark Streeter was practical and results-oriented. He avoided the emotional issues that would have distracted me from evaluating my options clearly, and did not influence me to agree to further unnecessary litigation. Mark was focused on the best outcome for me and my child. Instead of a long emotional argument battled out in family court, we came to an amicable settlement. Many other less ethical lawyers would have encouraged me to continue the unnecessary litigation so they can charge their clients more money. Mark was truly concerned about my interests.


The Family Law Act provides stiff penalties to any person who discloses the names or identities of parties in family court proceedings or who publishes sufficient information to allow for the identification of these individuals. Accordingly many of the case studies and profiles are of a very general nature as a number of the distinguishing facts have been removed to preserve the anonymity of the parties.
