My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
You have to take this matter to the childrens court and apply to get him back.
For custody you have to take it to the Family Court.
But to get the child back you have to have the childrens court decide.
You need a Solicitor that practices in child protection matters.
You can make your application on Monday.
I am not sure why the police lied in their reports but you also need to get a copy of them. If the police have simply repeated what the childs father has said then it is not a lie.
DOCS should have also interviewed you.
Here is some information for you.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
