Craddock Murray Neumann – Family Law

Level 3 131 York St Sydney CBD NSW 2000



We have been assisting asylum seekers for the last 26 years and have helped thousands of people to obtain Australian visas on the basis that they are refugees.

For 25 years Craddock Murray Neumann has been one of Australia’s leading migration practices. Today we have more than 1,000 active files. Our immigration lawyers assist a diverse range of clients with skilled, commercial and business migration visa applications, complex spouse and family visa applications and refugee / humanitarian visa applications.

We are committed to providing you with clear, accurate advice as part of a professional, good value service. We are the only migration law firm:

that is led by an accredited specialist (certified expert) in immigration law

that has ISO Law 9000/ISO9001 Quality Assurance certification –  work practices that are certified as complying with best-practice standards

that has continued to be appointed by the Department of Immigration for more than 15 years to assist a large number of vulnerable clients under the IAAAS program, a “legal aid” program to assist with humanitarian/refugee visa applications and applications for needy people in the Australian community

The new Temporary Protection visa arrangements are very similar to the system that existed before 2007, and we helped many people obtain protection visas under that system. 

We are one of Australia’s leading immigration law firms.  We are also the longest standing member of a panel of immigration advisers appointed by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to assist refugees under the Immigration Advice and Application Assistance Scheme (IAAAS). 

When you come to us you will always be helped by an immigration lawyer backed by a firm with 26 years of refugee law experience – not a migration agent with no legal training.

How we advise:

Our lawyers will provide you with clear plain language advice about the likelihood that you will be granted a visa, the costs involved and how long it is likely to take to receive a decision. 

After you decide to proceed we will advise you about what you need to do to progress your application, the evidence you must provide and how we will assist you during your application.   

While your case is being prepared and under consideration we will provide you with regular updates about its progress.

Carer of a dementia patient what do i do

One of the toughest jobs you can ever do is to watch the decline of a loved one to a mental disease.  More so, when you are the full-time carer and you have to contend with everything from toilet and washing duties to sometimes physical and verbal abuse.  It can be rewarding, but soul-destroying is another term that could be used.

But what is it like for the dementia patient themselves?  Are they aware of their surroundings?  Do they know when they are being mistreated or worse … neglected?

In a recent case (as reported by AAP/SBS), a Coroner cries over 83yo’s ‘tragic’ death, an elderly mother had been left to ‘deteriorate’ under the apparent care of one of her 3 daughters.  Once it was discovered that her 83yo mother had in fact passed away, her daughter shut the door and carried on like her mother was still alive.

Noreen Peacock had been diagnosed with having advanced dementia in 2010 and had not seen a doctor since this diagnosis.  Three years later, her body was found by a real estate agent at the home she shared with her youngest daughter in Sydneys Northern Suburbs.

The Deputy State Coroner described the case as “extraordinarily sad” highlighting the failures of Noreen’s daughters to support each other.

At the time of Noreen’d death, she would not have weighed more than 37 kilograms.

“There was no one in the outside world … keeping watch over Mrs Peacock or the care she was being given,” The Coroner, Ms Freund said.

Whilst the primary care resided on just one of the daughters, the other family members should have discussed a plan, or make inquiries as to how Melissa was coping.  “Melissa was left to flounder and the consequence was extreme,” said Ms Freund.

In this case, a charge was made for operating an account without authority (fraud), as well as failing to report a death.  No conviction was recorded as she was dealt with under the Mental Health Act.

If you find yourself being the primary carer for a dementia patient it is essential to keep in contact with the community – family members, neighbours, health care facilities, counselling.
