He has been living in the port melbourne, southbank suburbs for some years. his records may be with the st. kilda or south melbourne police. we have been waiting for him to get better (he has gone through the processes of detox , counselling, etc)
before helping him with a place of his own....he seemed to be on the mend but lately he has run up a lot of debt on our cards,
he abuses our cars with no license, he steals from us and he will not communicate in any way. He doesn't seem to care....if
we had some insight it may give us the luxury of being optimistic in some way and / or backing off and letting it happen.

Good Morning

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 are going to have to speak to his doctor and get assistance to have him placed in care and supervision in hospital.

Does he have a treating doctor?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
but i think he manipulates....anyways, he says his doctors tell him he is okay and sends him off with (a) advice and (2) anti-depressants......he has had a lot of treatment over this past year....he has this wall of secrecy about him that we cannot penetrate.....we fell we need to know what his past and present encounters with the law are about and how deep they are.
We can then try to work around them....it is impossible to do this in the dark.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
do you have access to records and court appearances / findings?
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

We cannot get that unless we are the solicitors on the record.

Have you spoken with his doctor?

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The answer or result is that you cannot help me because you do not have legal access the the information needed.
We do not know who the solicitor on record is....we are mushrooms....trying to dig up some information which can
assist us in helping our son. thank you anyways.
regards ***** ***** is not the money but I have been charged 4 times for this ' Í cannot help you' answer...i.e.
$81 /$58 / $1.45 / $5......there must be some mistake. Can your accounts people please have a look. I am happy to
pay but your site says 'no help' / 'no charge'' and you have not been able to help.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I am being harassed and blackmailed by phone , text and email by a young 25 yo guy who I have known for about 6 years. In the early days I tried to help him get his life back together and get a job. This was in NSW and I felt sorry for him as he had noone and his parents had disowned him. He had previously been in trouble with the police in his home state of Victoria. In NSW it became evident he had not changed his ways and got into trouble with two of his girlfriends taking out AVOs on him and one he assulted when drunk. I then found out he also had been stealing from them and he later was charged with fraud against another friend. He also took my credit card and stole over $8,000 from me He went to melbourne and did the same to his father. … read more
