Doyle's Guide

Marilyn Hauptmann, Swaab

As an expe­ri­enced fam­i­ly law prac­ti­tion­er I have been prac­tic­ing as a solic­i­tor in fam­i­ly law for over 27 years. Pri­or to enter­ing prac­tice I tutored and sub­se­quent­ly lec­tured in fam­i­ly law at Syd­ney Uni­ver­si­ty for nine years. I am one of the first accred­it­ed spe­cial­ists in fam­i­ly law in New South Wales and I am also a qual­i­fied fam­i­ly law arbi­tra­tor and mediator.

I am also the co-author of ​When It’s Over: A Guide to Sep­a­ra­tion and Divorce’ and is the co-author (with Ian Serisi­er) of Vol­ume 4 of Aus­tralian Fam­i­ly Law, pub­lished by LexisNexis.


I have reg­u­lar­ly pre­sent­ed sem­i­nars to prac­tic­ing fam­i­ly lawyers at the Col­lege of Law, Legal­wise, State Legal Con­fer­ence and CCH. I have has also giv­en evi­dence as an expert in fam­i­ly law in pro­ceed­ings before tri­bunals and civ­il courts.

My expe­ri­ence also extends to sit­ing on the board of the Inde­pen­dent Children’s Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for nine years. This allowed me to rep­re­sent chil­dren in dif­fi­cult par­ent­ing cas­es, where either one or both of the par­ties were self-rep­re­sent­ed and/​or there were alle­ga­tions of sex­u­al abuse.
