Just made it into Wagga after a huge day letterbox dropping. We have a great camp site right next to the Murrumbidgee and will get some dinner and an early night so we are ready for a big morning in Wagga.
I got talking to two fathers who grew up in Bourke who told me that they had never seen the Darling river run dry until now. They blame the cotton industry and politicians that are not looking after local families. #Dubbo#betterfamilies...
We had this guy for our custody battle between my hubby and my stepsons mum. We ended up settling out of court before the final hearing and my step sons lived with us for 4 years now, but this judge made me lose all faith in the legal system when we were going through court
Bloody hell. I've sat in those courts enough, seen women blatantly not give a flying @$&$ about any orders and never seen one even suggested to go to the house. And this for not filing???
This judge is obviously drunk on his own power and needs to be demoted immediately.
Another dog in this so called family court system. Sack him
Sake him people that have power like that should not be able to sit in a court and control people’s lives like that as I have found out to they are just narcissist people
Family law circus!!!!
$10 he's still sitting as a judge
Royal Commission now!
Not obeying court orders re access contempt of court or not
Vasta is a wicked and incompetent man and ought to suffer as this father and his family have. 12 months ought to do it.
There is power in your vote... get ready to make it work for our families. #Vote1ABF

Brothers here’s the LNP selling out vulnerable families, who thanks to gutless politicians, will continue to be exposed to a broken adversarial family law system, where the best interests of the child are often ignored from the get go!
We want reform and we know if we get the Australian Better Families Party into parliament we can hold government accountable. We need you to share their posts, join the party and vote for the ABF when the election is called.
Change happens when you make it happen!

A bloody worthless corrupt broken system!!!!!!
Thé only way this corrupt system will change IS that if all or vast majorité of fathers use all thé tricks in thé Book to stop paying child Support......lool lool 😂😂😂😂
The people who alienate the system should be named and shamed and jailed for false accusations in the court system and porning children to gain maximum payments and refusing to give access to the father
While I have heard plenty of horror stories about the family law court I thought I would share some hope for you all. I had my first appearance in court recently and I watched two other cases go through before mine. The first one involved a father who hadn't seen his baby son since he was two weeks old, for over 6 months. While the case had a long way to go the judge ordered that in the interim the Child must have regular weekly time with the father adding that this was an important bonding stage of the child's development and the child must have the fathers influence in its life. In the second case a father was trying to gain access to his children whom he hadn't seen for some years. The mother did not appear in Court and had apparently not appeared in the last hearing. The Judge promptly issued a warrant for the mother's arrest. In my relocation case, I received the interim orders that I asked for. I couldn't help but reflect that the court had done everything in the best interests of the children. The issue on this day was not the court but society. As I'm sure you noticed, all these cases involved fathers trying to get or maintain access between them and their children. I felt like it is not just the courts or politicians who need to change, rather it's our society at large.
Labor is no better..... Remember that is the party who released a sorry book & acknowledged past governments removal of aboriginal children from families at the same time Gillard ammending the family violence act removing children from their 'father's' lives 😤
Got my vote
I haven't seen my children nearly 7 years she refuses to give the children to me or to see them
More children will die in this system long before its fixed.
They make how much for lawyers each case and they claim.. No money.. Corrupted
Most politicians come from a legal background as scumbag lawyers and barristers... Why would they want to change anything with the money making machine the Family Court system is for them???
Same old crap. Heres the thing how simple of a reform would it be less money and court time. Automatically assume women get the kids. How about a basic law stating 50 50 on seperation in child custody matters. But under proven evidence and previous recorss should that be challenged fo the best interests of the child.
The struggle for these men is real they feel as though their children have died when they have been taken from them and don’t even get to talk to them on the phone is so disgraceful that these selfish people use there children to hurt there ex partners they need to be held accountable
Child support rewards these parents who restrict access. THIS MUST CHANGE!
It's bloody hard I was left homeless from my ex for her wrong doing left with nothing its bloody hard to start from scratch Im lucky I get to see my daughter every fortnight but its still hard saying goodbye to her as I was seeing her everyday but I will never give up on her even if i was on the streets as long she knows her dad is still here for her.
It should be law that children have equal rights to both parents and joint custody should automatic unless it is proven that one parent is a danger to kids , to many use kids as a weapon to be in control and spiteful
It’s been 2 years since I’ve seen my kids the dark holes are real surround yourself with good friends and family.
Having read this story, I am sad that we have lost another loving father.
Gentlemen! All fathers reading this who are separated from their kids. Your children NEED YOU. You need to persevere and continue through the difficult times, when you have been brought to your knees by the unseen abuse and oppressive legally biased system.
You are the heroes of your children, Defy the negative mindsets, let death know, That Today will not be the day of your downfall!
That the ANIHILATION OF YOUR CHILDREN’S FATHER HAS BEEN CANCELLED!
Agree, although a lot of this is terrible we need to remember that kids love us and need us and that suicide while an option is the worst option for everyone .....i am divorcing and I have no family where i live and have lost friends , I’ve had my fair share of personal issues which I am resolving ..... I have always paid my fair share and have never been violent or agreesive ..... we are in mediation and it’s very depressing and challenging.......... I use exercise particularly running 🏃♂️ as a stress release instead of alcohol or drugs, I can’t afford good legal advice because my business is volatile, so I’ve enrolled to study a masters in law at university and defer the fees..... no matter what you’ve just got to hold onto the light 💡 in the darkness , you’ve got to find something to focus on , you’ve got to keep fighting for your rights and your beliefs, you need to ask yourself “how will I win for my kids and I?” And then you need to do it
Another person has to die because of a selfish mother keeping the kids away
It’s so hard going from being your kids number one everyday of their lives then nothing... no phone call no visitation no photos, nothing.... after she had done this to her last two children and seen the trauma it causes, still decides that our son deserves the same.... I didn’t do a thing wrong and yet our son and I are left wondering how each other are every second of the day... he would wait hours for me to be home from work, I started my own business so I could be around more but it just lead to me finding out my son was being locked out of everyone’s rooms and being treated like a disease! I try and do something about it and I haven’t seen him since November 😔 try to call police, child protection and get legal aid and I’m still waiting!!! How is it fair that at any time she can disappear and I can’t do a thing about it yet if I had done this.... I’d be in jail!!
All my life I’ve dreamt of being a father, I went through hell with my daughter but have come to a happy medium but it took how many years??? Because I’m a male????
Men don’t have rights!! They say we do but that’s only if you can afford it!!!
My son never frowned because of me!!! All we done was smile and laugh together, he helped me with EVERYTHING... he was 2... how long until I see him 😔 will he look the same??? I bet he can talk now and wonders why I’m not around....
I miss his smile his cuddles his affection I miss everything. I miss him so badly!!!! All I can do is sit and wait???? How is that fair!!!
I wouldn’t marry her because she treated me and the kids so badly, I tried to understand her mental problems but now I realise she was just the problem period... she had this planned, she knew the torture the kids would feel and the confusion... again... how is this fair!!!!
He is a child... she could never look after him let alone her own and I’m left wishing I ran away with him??? That’s not right..
he should have came first, I stayed staunch through everything you threw at me every condescending remark every time you left me feeling unloved, for him! For our son to feel like he was in a loving family. You left me because I wouldn’t marry someone who treated us so bad! You could have tried just once to be a parent but your laziness was more acceptable??! If you can’t be a parent let me! Because I love him unconditionally and do not back down and hide when I have to do something for him, I’m the greatest father to my children and your jealousy is ruining their lives..... you make me out to be a monster when you hide your own?
I won’t ever give up on my son, daughter or any future children I may have... I’m not you.
I miss you my son, wherever you may be your still my best mate your still my everything!! No matter what she says. I love you!
Dads need to see their kids !!!!
I bet the CSA is busy looking at his super, hoping for a bonus
You fight for your kids.. you don’t give up.. those children will now never see their Dad. They will never know how much their Dad loves them. He has taken away their hope, their feelings of a fathers love and support. The kids will NEVER feel that or experience that from him now. Suicide is not they way. It will now affect the children’s future in a very negative way. I’m sorry to say but I don’t know how anyone could do that to their kids. As the daughter of a Dad I never knew when I was young there is always hope to reconnect later in life. To get to know one another. Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope.
No one is immune from the Darkness and no one should be judging this young man for what he did - no one can ever ever understand the total emptiness and complete isolating feeling that comes with the Darkness of depression. Saying things like “how dare he leave his kids “ “it’s a selfish act” these words will not bring him back or bring his loved ones peace , those words only hurt and cut his family and loved ones deeply and it’s bullying and shaming to this young man 🙏🏻 RIP - sending love prayers & kind wishes to his family and loved ones x
This is very tragic
Mick Lewis if we ever separated which I will never let that happen I would never stop you from seeing your boys they love you so much
We speak to to many families who tell us the same story. #21fathers
Far to common for males no matter if rich or poor.
I feel for this family. The loss of a son, brother, father, is such a tragedy. We tell our men to be more involved in parenting today, even providing parental leave to look after their newborns. But when the marriage breaks down it’s back to last century thinking and fathers are treated terribly and the court system allows it by the fact Dad can’t afford to defend themselves as they’re working to provide an income for their ex partner and their children. The ex partner is often provided with legal aid for their battles. Then to add insult to injury the waiting time to get to the family court is many months sometimes year. In the meantime Mum does what she wants and Dad’s are left to manage with the hurt of being alienated from their children or trickle fed with access to suit mums life.
Why is that?
Why can’t the courts act at the same speed that the child support agency does? With lightening speed!
Empathy for one another no matter who we are is so important, society lacks this big time. im sorry for the children and his family. Rest in peace brother....
Those msgs he sent to his ex. Clearly he had deep seeded issues. So sad for his ex and children
RIP my brother
Thankyou to the good girls in your life
I still struggle everyday
6 years on
Get help guys
Thankyou lisa townsend
This broke my heart. Fly high Brieze 💜
How can a parent deny the other parent from seeing their children? So cruel.
My heart just breaks for his poor family
As we all know losing your family is only the start of the horror.
