Family Court case studies - A Western Australian Disgrace

Reporter John Flint recounts some recent, controversial Family Court cases.

August 2006: Two WA children, aged 10 and eight, were flown to Switzerland to be reunited with their mother following a decision in the WA Family Court.

October 2006: A WA father was knocked back in his decade-long quest to meet his daughter, aged 10. He had been trying to locate and establish contact with the girl since her mother took her to a secret location interstate when she was a baby.

November 2006: An intellectually disabled man was told he was not allowed any contact with his son. The court agreed that the boy, also intellectually disabled, had nothing to gain from knowing his father, who had tried for 10 years to get access.

one tries to kill her children; one writes a song about his

In one case the mother does not appear to be in police custody, so possibly still with the children and a risk to them. A father in another case who was fighting for custody of his son has been banned from seeing the boy after he wrote a song sympathising with child murderer Arthur Freeman. The woman has been charged with three counts of attempted murder after allegedly trying to kill herself and her three children by driving into a tree. The father in the other matter will be allowed only to send the boy birthday and Christmas presents and be given an updated photo of him once a year.

Dads4Kids Media Release: PASSED ITS USE-BY DATE - Abolish the Famil…

The introduction by Justice Lionel Murphy of no-fault divorce in 1975 through the family law court has been a disaster from the beginning. We are drowning in a tsunami of moral relativism. Fault cannot be legislated out of existence by the whim of the parliament or the court. Fault must always be apportioned. After 1975 the new fault in family law became the male of the species. It is still the case today.

Kids want to sack Mum in divorce case

Justice Peter Murphy has slammed two sisters for "holding a gun" to the head of the court - and the heads of their parents - in a bizarre custody case. He spoke after the teenagers took their case to the Family Court, in a bid to leave their mother to live with their wealthy father on the Gold Coast. The girls, aged 14 and 15, have been brought up almost solely by their mum since their parents split up 10 years ago. It is an unusual case that is being closely watched by family law experts as the court has to weigh up the wishes of the children with what is in their best interests. While the case has yet to be heard in full, the judge said that in the interim the sisters had to go home to their mother while still being able to see their father.

Significant and Substantial contact orders are rising to the fore. In this case a 15 month old child is to spend overnights with the Father after a defended hearing. (See inside the main forums under "Making Changes to Family Law".

The art of divorce

After decades of marriage, raising a brood of children and amassing a family fortune worth more than $150 million, there's not much left to do other than get divorced and fight over the artwork. At least that was the case for a spectacularly wealthy former husband and wife from Melbourne who called it quits only to end up in the Family Court when they could not agree on how to split the assets.

The disclosures shocked the children's father. The case came before the Family Court in Melbourne last week, before judge Sally Brown who ordered that they should live, with their father, and have no unsupervised time with their mother.

THE Family Court missed all of its performance targets

The court finalised just 31 per cent of applications for final orders within six months, according to its annual report released yesterday. The figure was well below its aim of having 75 per cent of applications resolved within that time frame - although the report said this measure was not accurate because of changes in case management. However, other key performance indicators were also missed. The number of applications for interim orders dropped 38 per cent from about 7930 to 4950
