    I have been working in mental health for many years now, as well as a safety specialist in the construction industry. I see first hand the heart ache many men, initially go through, and the strain placed on families by the NSW Government System and the Federal Law Courts. There are many many grey areas, and the families are strained to obtain costly legal assistance, which most don’t do, simply because they don’t have the extra money – they want the money for the children.

    Hi, I would like to comment on australias family law and theCSA. My partner is a good man and a good father. He went through a nasty divorce and his ex wife threatened him into signing a document so that her and the children could move from Darwin to Perth. He signed it and moved to Perth. Once there she changed her mind and decided she wanted to move to North WA, then Brisbane all the while going to court insisting on child support moving costs bond, a car etc. She also kicked him out of his own house as he was a FIFO worker and refused to pay any rent or contribute to any of the bills for 2 years while this was going to court. In the mean time his project in the mines had finished and he couldn’t afford any of it anymore as he couldn’t get another job (mining crash). The exwife told him she was going to send him bankrupt and make sure he never saw his kids again. He did go bankrupt in the end. Through out the court case she/her lawyer made innuendo of him being abusive (not true) but never actually accused him. He was so close to suicide. In the end we have them 5 weeks of the year (school holidays) but she makes phone calls/communication hard. She turns off wifi in his 1 hour slot to facetime them. She refuses to give the new residential address. she bad mouths him to the kids and we cant afford to take her back to court for breaking the orders. we were advised that its not worth it anyway as she will just get a slap on the wrist which will cost us thousands. CSA on the other hand send him thousands of confusing documents. Each person you speak to says a different thing and when you question it…..its not in the files or conveniently lost! The system is so broken. He is lucky to have me or he wouldn’t be able to live! I pay 3/4 of our bills because he is only left with just under $600 a week after child support for which he needs to pay rent, utilities, food, petrol to get to work and save for the times his kids are here plus flights for them to get here. He also works casual now so he doesn’t get paid for the time he has off to have the kids. Its a disgrace!

      Almost identical to my friend’s situation. So sorry to hear but really happy you’ve voiced all of this. The whole system is infuriating! Hopefully ONE NATION will get changes happening soon as no doubt more and more suicides will be imminent. It’s total cruelty what these mothers get away with!!!!!!

    Something has to be done with this system. So many heartbreaking stories its just not fair. Im a pensioner who has been frauded by a close friend. I dont have money for a lawyer. I am busting myself to get help. Its next to impossible. In the meantime my health is deteriorating because of the stress.
    Trying to survive on nothing is impossible. This gov is dispicable the way he treats us. We should all leave Aus. and come back a refugee then we would be looked after
