Brothers we are coming up to an election and this is where the media starts to bang the drum about fathers but ignores the failures of policy.
Here's the ABF's Founders response to the questions about the 21 fathers campaign.
"The #21fathers is an awareness campaign that was produced by me from suicide statistics promoted by groups like, lone fathers, dads in distress, fathers rights.
The campaign was produced to put a spot light on the policies that play a part in the suicide of fathers. These include child support, family law and domestic violence laws. There is also links to the operational response of police which in my opinion has a significant and contributing factor in the suicide of fathers.
In regard to child support, my position is that if children are withheld after separation no child support should be paid and the parent withholding the children should be charged with family violence.
We are calling for major changes to the child support system that currently rewards parents financially for withholding access to children. I started the Australian Brotherhood of Fathers because the mother of my children used the agency to steal them from me."
If you have been betrayed by the Child Support Agency and want to help us bring changes to policy join the Australian Better Families Party volunteer your time on the lead up to the election and VOTE 1 ABF!
9 News It's been revealed deadbeat dads in Queensland owe hundreds of millions of dollars in child support bills and some parents are being banned from heading overseas unless they cough up the payments.

What about the mother's that receive cs but withhold the children from the father's or the stories the mother's tell the children, to turn them against the father, funny how it's always a story on deadbeat dads and never a story about the mother's that are an issue in the family system
Doesn't talk about the mothers withholding children and taking off overseas or the financial strain mothers put on fathers withholding children and putting these fathers in crisis trying to make a living whilst they go out alienate the children for a step daddy. What an absolute joke!
What about the dead beat mothers that dont pay
How about parental alienation and the focus on the mothers that are ripping off centrelink while holding their hands out for more Child support money.
What are they classifying dads who won’t pay till they are allowed to see their kids?
I understand what child support is and what it’s meant to go towards but I also believe if you’re paying child support you should be entitled to be able to see your child and unfortunately many don’t get this so they withhold payments till they get their rights.
My ex and her mother are trying alienation. Luckily I been my girls rock and show no hate to anyone. My 4 yo recently said mummy and grandma hates you but it ok I will always love you dadda. 💓💓💓
Sure theres some dead shits out there but the system is crap, some dads just can't afford to pay cs and pay for a clean livable home for there kids. Chanel 9 should do a story on single parent suicide and raise awareness of that.
Give the Dads access to there kids . And most will pay . Also the more overnight stays the Dads get with there kids , Means they pay less child support . That's why a lot of women give no access or very limited access. It's all about the money money . Not the kids .
Yep, forget to mention all those vindictive mothers withholding access. Also the ones who claim single mothers even when being supported by new partner! This system needs major overhaul!!
My ex took me to court for property settlement. My super had to be split which i did. I withdrew it from my super acct and transferred it to her. At the time i was unemplyed as i was one of cambell newmans victims. Next tax time i got a huge bill from csa because the money i withdrew to pay my ex showed up as income. No amount of reasoning could make csa see that it was money for her payment. Not income.
There's a direct correlation BTW parents who don't see their kids and this "so called debt". There will be a minor percentage that are just grubs.
However, these freely disclosed numbers offer important insights into the flawed system failing our society.
How about the system gets overhauled because is rubbish for all concerned. I pay ridiculous amounts of child support I can barely afford my own life as a result
Only 14% of men achieve custody of children. Of the 2100+ male suicides each year how many are caused by parental alienation and emotional abuse.
What about the muns who gets child support and center links payments travel overseas?
Shirking child support is a rort based on your gross income as if that money is even available to you
What frustrates me is my stepdaughter has started working after school and on weekends. Due to this we don't see her on weekends anymore. Dont get me wrong. My hubby and i encourage her initiative and independence. But now we don't see her the csa charge us more. As her mother has her 100% of the time.
What the women says goes according to child support, it's not just the father that suffers it's the rest of his family, new partner, babies grandparents etc. Child support says my hubs children cost more 8000 and more but it only 600 for a 2yo a year
PEOPLE you stop loving each other not the children
I’m behind due to denied access and alienation and yet they travel the world, and I mean all over the world!! while I have to get by in a shed!
I don't see why this is such a problem. On separation by default custody by law should be 50/50. Then access can be negotiated from there if one of the parties is unable to do that. Once custody is in place, usually with the mother, if she fails to produce the children when she is supposed to, automatic breach. They do this to Newstart recipients. If they fail to comply with the rules they are breached and have their payments stopped for a period of time. Many single parents would make sure they complied with the threat of a breach. That would also be a win for tax payers funding our courts full of Fathers trying to get help with their rightful access. So simple really.
What about my ex not paying a cent in over a year for my two kids I am raising on my own she always has plenty of money for meth but can’t pay maintenance
So here goes, my ex blatantly withholds access to my daughter who is in Hong Kong. Three years and over 100k in costs CSA thought it was a good idea to issue a DPO guaranteeing the mother's ability to have no access to the father. Now the minister calls me a deadbeat. Thanks, and noted when I am going to vote.
How many dads owe money to child support, even when they have 50% care but the mother chooses not to work, so she can get the most out of child support!!
But it's the father being called a deadbeat
This is what I have been coping currently from my X paying 300 a week in child support I can almost guarantee my kids don't see any of it. The system need a overhaul big time. dead beat dads what a joke more like money hungry mummy's. I had no choice of my children been taken from me as I was away at work providing for my family when they were taken my X wanted nothing to do wit me but quick to put my hand out for money and yet I still can't see them
Ann Lewis read the comments and peoples who have been affected by child manipulatiin so fukd up.
My ex now goes to school early to snatch my youngest child because I now have majority care. She always rubbed it in my face when she was getting money now she would have to pay me and removes my child against her wishes so she doesn’t. Its embarrassing for her
I took my x partner to court over death threats she made to me. The police said its domestic violence. The male judge said she committed domestic violence. She pleaded not guilty it went to a trial. The female judge at the trial said she did not feel my x partner had committed domestic violence against me and dismissed the case. If I had of said the words my x had said to me and it’s all in text messages I would still be in jail now
If you're going to post claims as big as this, you need to provide evidence of it and references.
Making wild claims like this isn't going to better our position if turns out to be completely false.
Can you provide a link to this police policy or show us in writing please? I want to use it in my case. Thank you.
As said above. These kind of comments need to be referenced in totality at time of posting. Lagging information is not conducive to what your trying to promote and dribbling information out over social media will only serve that such information is misconstrued or only taken in part.
This is a pretty big statement to make without any references??
What do you think happens when a male police officer is the victim?
A female can breach IVO's, FVO's and DVO's as many times as she wants and it will not matter how strong your case is they will not charge her 🤦♀️🤦♀️
So will the ABF provide the source of this claim ? Is this a state issue or federal issue ?
You have asked commentors to prove you wrong, firstly i think you need to prove this statement as true and correct.
Unfounded claims like this absolutely tarnish the good work the ABF does for the most part.
Please back this up so that I may share it widly.
Gretchen Yeo it's 'implicit' in the Police Policies as well as the Human Service's Policies.
Take a look for yourself, in their policies. Whilst some stats might get through, the policies deliberately reqire "Omitted Variable Bias".
That is a scratch on the surface to whats going on in the legal systems Domestic violence , child Safety the health system, Independant Child lawyers and the family court.
There are excessively high paid so called professional who go about in their own importance actively destroying the safety of children and ruining families while ignoring and failing to act on domestic violence on children by women.
Who has told police not to report it?
If you can give any kind of ‘proof’ we will change things. And save lives. Please be right. #my9yroldneedshisdadinhislife
in which state and under what authority? I have withdrawn my support of the ABF in spite of my personal circumstances for what I think are your absurd socialist positions.
My ex broke her VRO over 20 times. I had proof of txt messages recorded phone calls and video footage. She was only charged with 1 account of breach because they rolled them all into one. The police didn't seem to care about me at all. Neither did the court.
The ABF statement is not hard to believe as it's happened to me. Keep up the great work guys. No one will listen until it's happened to them.
And there lies the reasons why the statistics are so flawed
This statement is incorrect. Stop spreading misinformation.
You can't speak from your hurt experience.
How do they classify the call out then? That would be falsifying leagal documents wouldnt it?
If this proves to be true, then you will have my full support. Please provide the data and the credible evidence, that backs up and supports this contention, so that I can view and assess the data and the evidence for myself. Much appreciated.
And your freedom of Information link or creditable research is where to support that statement?
dont worry...I will be sharing some stuff real soon....
Working for Gov is scary stuff
Please quote source of that statement. It’s quite contentious.
I live near Gympie. I've had seven men accurately report to me that they were refused action on female DV against them. That is seven that I am aware of. These are people I know and I have assisted them in making complaints against police. If police refuse to accept mens complaints of DV against them - and then have them bend over backwards to accept false claims of DV against them - AS HAPPENED TO ME - then POLICE ARE THE PROBLEM. And I am a retired police officer.
In the wake of the Christchurch tragedies, and the dangerous and divisive rhetoric by the "accidental Senator", Frazer Anning, gaining international condemnation, I find your silence on the situation alarming. I found members of this page were sympathetic to the fallout from him attending the far right rally in Melbourne in January, after your post invited people to support him. The real danger of voting for candidates with either hidden agendas, or duplicitous intentions of backflipping on their party and turning independent (like Anning) leaving them in parliament, with no filters, are real. Unless you are prepared to be transparent on all current situations, people would be ill informed to vote for any of your candidates.
Brothers if you have experienced violence and abuse at the hands of your partner make sure you are documenting when it happens so you can ask the courts to hold them accountable for their actions and behaviour.
To bad even having that evidence to support you the Australian court system still fails you.
What about mental abuse
Sorry but I think that Johnny Jets playing this a little bit too familiar even if something did happen, he is a celebrity and arm all he is doing is try to get more notoriety but that is my opinion.
They are both abusive.
Don’t just document, phone the Police.
“This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp's repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard.”
“She will not be silenced”
“Mr. Depp's actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behaviour.”
“He appears hell-bent on achieving self-destruction, we will prevail in defeating this groundless lawsuit and ending the continued vile harassment of my client by Mr. Depp.”
Don’t know exactly who it is, but bumped into him at Harbourtown Mecca’s, bloody top bloke!! Real friendly and proud to display the ABF, chatted for a couple of minutes, really good dude!!
I got the same sticker on the back of my car 😊
