One Nation Calls for Royal Commission into Family Law

Pauline Hanson has asked the Senate to acknowledge that discriminatory aspects of the Family Law system contribute to the increase in male suicide rates over Christmas.

The system acts to separate children from parents and grandparents at Christmas, contributing to this increase.

    A Royal Commission into the Family Law System and the industry associated with it is urgent and need right now. I applaud Senator Hanson for moving this motion in the Senate. Suicides are common at the Christmas New year period. I would hope that such a Royal Commission would have broad terms of reference, no stone unturned. Bring the rats out of their hiding place.
    Well done Sen Hanson and One Nation

    I have personally been done over by the Family Court of Australia and had the unpleasant experience to deal with Judicial morons BUT one in particular in the Brisbane registry , I have solid evidence that woman are encouraged to fabricate domestic Violence to the womanising Judicial bench of power abusers who i can comfortably say are only interested in their own importance

    A royal commission is warranted and then the removal of all of the judicial parasites from office

    do not waste your time or money to appeal as the only word these full of it arrogant Appeals Justices know is DISMISSED

    My advise is to stay very far away from the Family Court of Australia

    I think you’ll be surprised at what a Royal Commission would find. I don’t believe the system is fair to either parent, particularly in the Child Support area. I know good fathers who aren’t able to see their children and fathers who have been taken to the cleaners financially… but Mothers all over the country (including myself) are well and truly getting the raw end of the deal, to such an extent I just can’t fathom how it’s all set up the way it is. Let’s not make this issue just about fathers… The entire family system needs to be looked at without bias to gender.

    Too late for too many, and then you have a whole lot more that live with hatred and resentment due too the results that come from this grubby court. I personally would love too put the lot of you bastards against the wall. Judges, solicitors, court administration officers and any other peice of shit that contributes too the pain and suffering of families. I won’t forget and I will never forgive you bastards for your conduct. Sitting up there with your creepy little head wigs, you mob of maggots.

    A royal commission into family law is long overdue. Another Christmas my partner can’t see his kids even though parenting orders are in place. Parenting orders are not worth the piece of paper they are printed on

    Thankyou Sen Hanson and the One Nation Party,

    As some one who has suffered at the hands of the current legal system through a family law debacle this commission cannot happen fast enough.

    There is much talk of the “stolen generation” of Aboriginal children but nothing is said about the children that are stolen every day in this country, usually from their fathers.

    I totally agree, something very drastic has to be done here.
    !0 years ago I lost my daughter for no reason. I don’t want to know about Christmas. Makes it all so much harder.
    To steal children from Fathers and Grandparents is a breach of Human Rights to start with and the incompetency off the authorities (Police , Docs and what there all called) is just outstanding.
    A Royal Commision may archives something.
    Well done Pauline and One Nation

    Congratulations Pauline on a well and truely overdue motion
    As a great grandmother whose grandchildren have been taken into care and the treatment since had been unbelievable. Lies to suit their own ends bad placements after they have been warned ,not accessing. The foster homes properly court costs ,visitation rights , for all the parties concerned
    I could go on with a lot more details but for the moment I will wait to hear what is happening I know of a lot of different issues since talking to other in similar circumstances we have even thought about going to the media for help
    The communication between families and DHS is a disgrace .

    II: Legal Aid
    Everyone should have access to legal aid, regardless what is the issue. But Legal Aid should not be free.
    Legal aid should be paid back to the Government to the same condition a father has to pay child support. And, partners and immediate family is liable too.

    my ex got Legal Aid. She said she didn’t pay much to the Lawyers. But she got a payout of all up $230k. So don’t know if the lawyers took money out of that payout..

    We need to look at the DEATHS THIS SYSTEM IS CAUSING TO CHILDREN:

    The Inquest into the deaths of Grace’s two sisters and mother found:
    ‘The evidence makes clear that parties to Family Court proceedings can be subjected to intense, ongoing stress. It is also clear that such stress, along with cannabis use, was a contributing, if not precipitating, factor of Ms Glendinning’s psychosis. ‘ (paragraph 225)

    An investigation into the Family Law Industry needs to be given Royal Commission powers and headed and staffed by people not connected to the existing family law industry. This Inquiry needs to have a scientific not a legal approach. I nominate the head of this inquiry to be Dr David Curl CEO of the not for profit For Kids Sake.

    A former president of the Clinical Psychologists Association of Australia and a psychology clinic director at the University of Sydney, Judy Hyde talks about family consultants:
    ”the fact is people are very poorly trained to actually manage these assessments anyway and the lives of our children are put at risk,”

    Canadian Family Court Judge Harvey Brownstone comments that Judges are, ‘trained in the law by the way, not social work, not child psychology, we are not counsellors or therapists, to make a decision about children’. (2 minutes 14 seconds) https://youtu.be/5RzuWetBhSw

    Child Support………….mmm!
    The fact that many Fathers and Mothers will not see their children at Christmas is a very sad truth. In my case, I have not seen my youngest Son since 2000. He is now almost 23 years old. I have four children of my own and inherited three more.
    I re-married and became a step dad to three boys, and have been a part of their lives ever since. Being responsible for seven kids is a big job, and I understand the pain and heartache these situation bring, along with the anger, frustration and the total lack of common sense dealt out by the Man Bashing Family Law Judicial System.
    I fully understand that the Ladies who read this will be saying that is not true or what did I do to be placed in this position. Well the truth is I told the Court the truth…!!! but because I was the Father and not the Mother, the children were placed into the custody of their Mum, and I was given the good old second weekend and half the school holidays and also a Farther’s Day weekend. I agreed to that and off we went.
    Two weeks later my Ex moved to another Town, and I had to go back to court to change the arrangements, at a cost of course. Changed they were and before I knew it, my Ex had moved again………..Back to Court again, change the arrangements again, and you will never guess what happened…. Yep, moved again, to Orange, NSW this time.
    After spending well over $20k in the Court system, dragging everyone to Court again, not to mention the trauma it all caused the children, I made the hardest decision in my life.
    I stopped feeding Fat Lawyers and Judges, and stopped.
    The emotional and financial cost was too great.
    My three eldest kids and I have a good relationship, I have 7 Grandchildren and will be lucky enough to see some of them at Christmas. My youngest Son, who can’t remember his Dad, has no wish to be part of my life. That is the sad fact of the matter and has never had a chance to know his Dad, thanks to the Family Law Court.
    To the Dads and Mums, Grandparents and siblings out there who will be without their loved ones this Christmas, you have my sympathy and understanding.
    My own Dad committed suicide and the effect that has had on me is huge, but one thing I know for sure is, that I will never take my own life as I know all too well, the effect it has on the ones left behind !!!

    Thank you Senator Hanson for bringing this issue to the fore. A RC into the whole family law system is well warranted. This needs to include the Family Court and the CSA and the legal practitioners who practice in this area. Both are solidly anti-fathers. My experience with the Family Court was many years ago and I’ve forgotten about it. But my experience with CSA is fairly recent. I was very nearly a suicide statistic due to the unrelenting pressure put on me by some CSA operatives. Nothing I could say was believed, until one day one CSA lady actually listened to my story and was shocked. But by then it was too late; the financial, emotional and physiological damage had been done. I would be very happy to be a witness at any RC if the logistics can be organised.
