My Ex is blocking all contact.

My Ex is blocking all contact with my son (8 years old). I have been through mediation (no agreement reached) and am in the process of applying to go to court.

Hi,
In a nutshell.

My Ex is blocking all contact with my son (8 years old).
I have been through mediation (no agreement reached) and am in the process of applying to go to court. I am told the process could take months.
I have legal advice that suggests I have every right to have contact with my son leading up to the court hearing, however… my ex has threatened to take out an AVO if I attempt to have contact with him.
Apparently all she has to do is to tell police she is fearful of me and based on her word the police will grant her an AVO.

Is this true?… doesn't she have to offer some kind of proof that I'm threatening or intimidating her (which I have not and will not)? Is just saying that she feels intimidated enough?

If it is true that her word is enough, then what steps can I take prior to attempting contact? An AVO might prevent me from any contact with my son for months!

I have read the domestic violence act and i am afraid your fear is valid.
If she is playing these type of games get legal advice ASAP
Guest seems to have a knee jerk reaction here. Take the time to read up on the site the many posts about AVO matters.  There is a judicial test and it is not just a matter of calling the local constabulary. As long as there is no violence and abuse it is hard work. Especially with a pending Federal Magistrates Court matter pending.

Thanks for your input I appreciate it.

I have been in contact with family relationship agencies and apparently if there is an AVO put in place I have 21 days to respond and hopefully have it nullified…. is this true?

(In my case there is no violence or abuse)
