@wlsq More selective reporting that conveniently ignores female perpetrators along with the psychological and physical damage and increasing death toll. 3 men in Qld in less than 2 weeks. @DiFarmerMP@couriermail
Have my hearing may 3rd, when i win can i ask for the costs to be paid by the other party? It will be around 2.5k ?
Good advice. However, make sure you tell the magistrate the following:
1. The allegations made by the woman are false
2. You believe that the application is made to affect Family Court proceedings and to attempt to alienate your children from you (if you have children) and to have you excluded from your own home (if this applies)
3. That you are prepared to give an undertaking to the court not to commit DV but do not believe a temporary court order is needed or warranted
4. That if an order is made that the children not be included and that you not be prevented from contacting them or from spending time with them (if this applies) and that you not be excluded from your own home
5. That you intend to file a cross application against the woman (if you yourself have been on the receiving end of DV from her. (If you have time before Court, do your own application and file it at the front desk or while you are standing before the magistrate)
6. If you do file a cross application, ask for an order to be made against the woman as well.
7. Ask the magistrate to adjourn the matter for 4 weeks so that you have time to get legal advice and prepare for a trial if there is to be one.
Speaking to the duty lawyer, if he or she will see you at all, may be useful. However, often they will tell you to consent without admission. If the DL does this, walk out.
Time is on your side. Do not rush, panic, try not to get angry and follow your plan. Don't be sidetracked or bullied. Above all, remember that the police will not help you!
When you arrive at court, please utilise the resources of the duty lawyers and volunteers - they are a wealth of information and support.
No evidence needed yeah that sounds fair and just ..why is it someone can be accused found guilty with absolutely no evidence this needs too change it defies natural justice ..
Make sure that police have actually investigated the matter as they MUST do under Section 100 of the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act. If they have not investigated the matter, the resulting application for a protection order is illegal. Make sure you make a submission for dismissal of the case if the police have not investigated the matter. An investigation does not mean speaking to just one side in the case. An investigation requires both parties to be spoken to.
Have I shot myself in the foot if I’ve consented without admitting to the allegations? The IVO is no longer in place. Hopefully it’s something that can’t be brought back up?
Try this if you're in Victoria...(I have never spoken with him but saw post a while ago).
Yep, They use it out spite to serve there own selfishness unfortunatly. And the crooked system, Lawyers and others leach off it.
Brothers not often we share Labor content but Doug Cameron got this right.
One Nation is happy to do deals to give the government the votes needed for company tax cuts, but instead of using this opportunity to push for important reforms in family law and child support legislation they sell us out.
Pauline spoke about the suicide of fathers during her maiden speech after the 2016 federal election, acknowledging the connection between the failure of the courts and social policy to keep families safe and connected after separation.
If the lives of fathers meant anything surely this was the perfect opportunity for One Nation to negotiate reforms that would save lives and reduce the suffering of Australian families almost immediately.
Instead they sold fathers, their children and their families out for apprenticeships.
Dead men don’t vote Pauline, but the families and friends left behind do, and they will remember.
Brothers we need to ensure your voice is heard in Canberra and we need to ensure opportunities for reform like this are not wasted. Join the ABF party here > www.theabf.org.au/membership

Doug Cameron Pauline Hanson and One Nation – sell out merchants on the $65 billion tax cut to big business using apprentices as a smoke screen for this dirty deal. This beggars belief. Like and share if you agree ... See MoreSee Less
If it was important to them (One Nation) they would have taken every/any opportunity to realise immediate amendments to legislation to reduce the emotional distress and financial hardships parts of the family law act and child support legislation has on separated families. This is another missed opportunity to keep families connected and to save the lives of fathers in crisis.
The Australian Labor Party are far, far, far worse and are run entirely by the radical feminist movement. The ALP are ANTI-FATHERS!
Now now ABF.....if you are going down this track you will lose many followers. Pauline can only do what she can at the time. For goodness sake this issue is just one of many. Please qualify how you think she sold out for apprenticeships. Makes no sense.
I'm not sure whether this is a credible path forward, ABF, in relation to political organisations selling others out. Doug Cameron will do and say anything, to get what he and the Unions, want. I don't believe that Pauline Hanson is like that.
Nice way to throw Pauline Hanson under the bus! One Nation negotiating and supporting the tax cuts is in the best interests of Australia.
Hasn't she already made her mark by getting a look at Family Law reform?
Not sure where you are going with this.
Have to agree! Can’t stand Doug Cameron but he did get this right. This country need a good apprenticeship scheme in place but NOT this one. Apprenticeships scheme worked well 30 years ago until the government got involved and “F” it up. Pauline has lost my vote for this back door deal. 😡
Yes all got excited and full of courage with the political ploys of Pauline -and Derryn about caring and going to bring LIGHT to the CHILDREN of suffering and Family Law. Then= SAME SEX MARRIAGE all of a sudden became a big $$Dollar $ political smoke screen to hide a lot of other real concerns. and yes all is forgotten now till next election time. $$$ come on aussie come on.🤔🤔🤐😶
Brothers the results are in after over 1300 votes with an overwhelming 97% telling us that Australian police are not supporting men in crisis.
This is a shameful reflection of not only our police but also political parties and their anti male policy. If you’re looking for answers to the national emergency that is male suicide we need to improve the police response to male victims of family and domestic violence.
Change can happen, all it takes is working together as part of our own political party so we can elect representatives with lived experiences who understand how to fix a failed system. Your support is needed to ensure our voices will be heard in Canberra. Join here > www.theabf.org.au/membership

Let's not quibble over the largely irrelevant different results that a more scientific survey might have shown. It is plain that a HUGE PROPORTION of the 1300 people responding to this survey, think that POLICE DO NOT TAKE THE COMPLAINTS OF MEN WHO ARE VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SERIOUSLY. Although police forces/services might disagree, they at least have a very serious PR problem. I. Do. Not. Wonder. Why.
Police child protection and schools are not protecting our children WHY ??? Don't bother making reports as your allegations will be turned n used against you . No one cares about you or your children.
Keep pushing ABF.. you are effecting change.
You report something to police, then they and the mother turn it back on you. After 24-hours of constant verbal and emotional abuse, to my face, I got out of my house, then 12-hours of abuse via phone I took a photo of myself absolutely distraught crying. I reported this to police, only to then be accused of emotional abuse, because I sent the photo to the perpetrator.
Brothers the ABF party is in the final stages of their application process. We encourage you to support the party with a membership.
The party application will be processed by the AEC as soon as the Batman by election is finalised. We encourage you to support the only party 100% focused on family law, child support and domestic violence policy reform.
We new new representation in parliament from men and women who have lived experiences of the failed system. Nothing changes if nothing changes #BetterFamilies for a #BetterNation
