Now Rudd has a contest

"I know what it's like to be very short of money," he said. "I know what it's like to live in a rented flat". "I know what it's like to have a single parent with no support other than a devoted and loyal father. "I listen to everybody," he said. "I am a great believer in networking. I am a great believer in communication and consultation."

Family Court says YES to meaningful relationship

In an appeal verdict, that lawyers called precedent-setting, three judges sitting as the Full Court of the Family Court have ruled the boy had a right to a 'meaningful relationship' with the man he still believed was his dad. They said it was wrong that, if the father had adopted the boy or if he had been the biological father but had never lived with the mother and had nothing to do with his upbringing, he would have had more rights. We are not convinced Parliament turned its mind to whether husbands in his position should have any different status. The man went to court when his ex-wife did not return from a short holiday overseas with their son.

Successful appeal against imprisonment order  

A mother has successfully appealed against orders of a federal magistrate sentencing her to a period of four months imprisonment and reversing a parenting order. The reversal of the parenting order provided that the children were to live with the father indefinitely and not just for the period of the wife's imprisonment. The federal magistrate found that, without reasonable excuse, the mother had contravened an order for time to be spent between the children and the father.

Best Interest of the Child - Whats happening?

Is the Best Interest simply "keep mum happy?" A recent judgement needs urgent exploration and critique to see what is going on. Barry Williams from LFAA says he is ashamed of the latest appeal ruling that came out involving three family Court Judges relating to a relocation ruling, where they upheld an order made by a Federal Magistrate in Canberra to allow a mother to leave Canberra with her new partner to live in Atherton QLD, even though the father had been in a 50% shared-care relationship with his son for the last 5 years. The father of the boy appealed the judgment.

Their only real reason it seems, by reading the transcript, was that it would make the mother unhappy if the child wasn't allowed to go with her, meaning that it didn't matter that the child would be unhappy by having to leave his Dad.

Trisha Goddard's Revenge/Slander of ex-Husband

The former husband of British talkshow host Trisha Goddard is taking legal action to prevent her salacious kiss-and-tell autobiography being released in Australia. In her memoir, the former Play School presenter alleges Greive - a producer with Channel Nine's Sunday program - was the reason she ended up in a psychiatric hospital. She accuses him of cheating on her, being a drug-taker and a poor father during their marriage. Greive said: "She makes the malicious Heather Mills look like an amateur. Trisha has become a professional drama queen who exploits people from past relationships to progress her own career and notoriety."

Robertson continues to publicise his case/position and advocate for…

AAP - The father who sparked a nationwide search for his children when he failed to return them from an access visit plans to campaign for courts to better honour the rights of children. Murray Robertson, 59, created national headlines this week when he gave himself up to police after being on the run with his three children for six weeks. The children, Bokkie, 10, Matilda, nine and seven-year-old Barney have since been reunited with their mother, Philippa Yelland.

Mr Robertson said courts failed to adhere to the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Australia was a signatory. The Shared Parenting Counsel gives support to Murray Roberston a dad who just wants what is best for his kids.
Mr Butler,the Executive Secretary of the Shared Parenting Council said
This is yet again another case where the father is left out of the children's lives. We have case after case after case brought to our attention where one good and decent parent is completely removed from the lives of their family by the other parent who takes the spoils of victory at court.

Often this is brought about through an interventionist regime of charlatans, the so called court experts and physiologists, who wreck havoc on what was previously an intact family through sinister activities shrouded in secrecy, hidden behind the veil of the juggernaut court system.

The jury is still out on the effect of the new overhauled legislation and cases like Goode and Goode are being monitored very closely to see if additional changes are required to enforce substantial time provisions in the Act and more tightening of the current discretionary powers for judges.
