Catching up with Michael Tiyce

Catching up with Michael Tiyce

On Friday I finally met one of my interstate colleagues- prominent LGBT family lawyer Michael Tiyce. In the nature of today’s modern world, Michael and I have kept in regular contact- by phone, email and by Facebook, of course, but as he is in Sydney and I am in Brisbane, for some reason we had never met.

That was fixed on Friday, when I caught up with Michael and his associate Barry Apelbaum in Sydney. I was in Sydney to obtain a surrogacy parentage order.

Both Michael and Barry are keen on attending the LGBT Family Law Institute regional meeting in Brisbane on 12 and 13 March, 2016. This will be the first regional meeting of the LGBT Family Law Institute meeting in Australia, and the second outside the US (the first being in London in May this year).
