I am a father of 4 children. My ex has had an avo put on me
I am a father of 4 young children. My ex has had an avo put on me by the NSW police in Nov 2019. This has been contested by myself since then. I have had multiple applications to vary from the NSW police. I have represented myself and had 2 of the applications to vary revoked in court. However the initial avo is being heard this thursday Sept 10th. I am hopeful that I can get it dismissed, since there is no evidence and all allegations are false. The mother is deliberately isolating tand alienating the children from me at the instruction of her family lawyer to have no contact. This is not an avo condition or any condition from any orders. Can I get an avo or move in some way with legal assistance to strike back at these lawyers who believe they have a right to help my ex alienate my children from me? … read more

Forced AVO on my partner by police even though I objected to
Forced AVO on my partner by police even though I objected to it vehemently. I have been in a domestic violence cycle previously, not with my current partner. There is no history of violence or any signs, which I recognise instantly because of my past experience. My partners actions were totally out of character. His personality was altered and I believe he could possibly have had his drink spiked. He has no recollection of the events which took place. I have seen my partner intoxicated on several occasions and his behaviour remains the same as when he is sober. He has never shown aggression of any kind to me apart from this one event. I do not believe that the AVO is warranted nor would the police listen to my objections, effectively taking all my power from me. The strain on our family is unbearable because of this incident and the subsequent result. … read more
