It depends how she feels and feels is the key word, I might expect you may well get a knock on your door by the police if she played the DV card. I can only speak to my own case, I was never engaged in abuse and later had all three weapon of family law used on me….
proudfather saidshe's claiming that I have been intimidating her and she can't handle talking to me at all.
April saidIs it worth going back to mediation to have parenting plan turned into consent orders?
proudfather saidIt's a terrifying thought for me to be slapped with an AVO, especially considering my job and my gun license would be on the line. All I'm trying to do is communicate with this woman and she goes to unbelievable lengths to remain uncontactable and unresponsive to even the most basic gestures of talk about the children.
I believe shes playing the battered woman card and trying to incite a response from me thats a little bit irrational how do you even protect your self from something so insidious when all you want is to see your daughter for her first birthday before going away for a long period of time?
Sorry to hear about what happened to you mate sounds like your up against quite a piece of work there.
We have been split up for over a year and in that time I've seen my children for a total of 22 HRS over 24 visits, as soon as I mentioned that I wasn't happy with the rate of contact and I wanted more and that I'm going to file a case….BAM no contact no talking no anything just threats of her moving away, and me never seeing my daughters again. Its a damn crying shame.
As I mentioned I have never done anything to her to incite this other than mention I want my children more. If anything her short memory amazes me she seems to forget that we broke up because I was sick of being sworn at and emotionally abused every day and having plates thrown at me.
I really wish she would wake up so we just parent these children together.
Proudfather saidWhen you say show cause does that mean the police need to show cause or does she?

proudfather saidReally? So she could just say it and basically I would have to prove it didn't happened? How did our country get this way!
