Federal Magistrate Henderson considers relocation to Serbia

In a detailed judgement Federal Magistrate Henderson considers relocation to Serbia. It is an interesting case to review the complex issues surrounding any relocation and in particular the decision making around the Presumption of equal shared parental responsibility in section 60CC (2)(3) and (4) of the Act. Having found against the presumption he must consider the matters under sections 60CC(2) (3) and (4) of the Act to make an order in the childs best interest having regard to the competing proposals of the parties.

Divorce rates higher when child has ADHD

Parents of children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may be more likely than other parents to divorce before their child's 8th birthday, a new study suggests. The study included nearly 500 couples - 286 had a child with ADHD and 206 had a child without this condition. The researchers found that couples with a child with ADHD were almost twice as likely to divorce before their child turned 8 years old. After that age, however, divorce rates were similar in both groups of parents.

White Ribbon day - Only women apply ! Violence against men is non e…

This Sunday is White Ribbon Day (WRD) and the start of the 16 Days of Activism to Stop Violence Against Women. However the 2005 Personal Safety Australia survey found that in the past 12 months almost twice as many men as women (808,300) were victims of all types of violence; twice as many men as women (485,400) were victims of physical assault; nearly a third of sexual assault victims were men; 864,300 men were harassed and 110,700 men were stalked.

The same study found that men were almost as likely as women to experience physical violence within the home (half from females, half from males) and were just as likely as women to experience physical violence from perpetrators who were known to them. Yet the WRD campaign focuses solely on the prevention of violence against women by men.

Schools fail kids over divorce

Schools are not doing enough to deal with the reality of divorce, according to new research. And fathers, in particular, feel excluded from activities such as school carnivals, working bees and parent-teacher interviews. Research led by Professor Brown found that about two-thirds of non-residential parents - which are, in most cases, fathers - said they did not receive anything from the school, not even school reports.

Govt to consider creating commissioner for children

The federal government says it will consider creating a commissioner for children following a report which found 95 per cent of child sex offenders escape conviction. An Australian Law Reform Commission report found just five to 10 per cent of child sex cases which get to court are finalised, with only half of those actually convicted. The report also showed the number of children Australia-wide in need of protection has tripled over the past 10 years from almost 92,000 to more than 309,000. Families Minister Jenny Macklin said the figures were shocking and the government was already considering creating a federal commissioner for children.
