Hello

Thank you for having this web site. I have spent a few hours looking through the many forums, but I would like some guidance on what I need to do, to get fair access to my child.

A quick run down on my circumstances.

I was young and foolishly messed around with a girl even though I was trying to break up with her. She fell pregnant, and we had a baby girl. I attemted to stay with the mother as long as I could stand it, but we were not meant for each other, and It soon ended. As soon as we broke up she started dictating when I could and couldn’t see my daughter. I was depressed, started smoking marijuana, drinking and in deep resentment of life. I felt I had no hope.

I moved to another state to make a fresh start. I have since came to know God, do not touch drugs, and have not been drunk for a long lime. I have always made it back to my home state for my daughters birthdays, Christmas, and visited as many times as I could through out the year. I am to get married in a month, am buying my first home, and have really made a complete change in my life since my ex knew me. I can not afford to hire a lawyer

My ex is threatening that I will never have access to my daughter when I visit, will not let her come to Melbourne for my wedding, and fills my daughters head with rubbish about me. She is demanding that I sign papers taking away all of my rights as a father.

I want to have a say in my daughter schooling, I want copies of her school reports, I NEED to get some basic access to my daughter. Even if it is a few weeks of the year with me, or when I visit my daughter and parents in my home state. I can not let my daughters head be filled with rubbish. I need my daughter to grow Her own opinion of me through spending time with me.

Where do I start the process of self representing myself?

Has my past screwed up any chance of a future with my daughter?

Will it go against me because I have moved to another state?

Is there any body who can coach/help me through the process?

Thank you for reading my post, I look forward to hearing back from someone.

Kind regards
Guest you are to be commended for taking the time to read some of the web site. Can I suggest you further explore the site and some of the forums. There are forums for the self represented and SRL Resources is housed on this portal. That organization specifically supports SRLs and will address your questions and they also have private forums if you join them.
