Which court?:

Seriously consider becoming a SRL-R Fiorelli  and you will soon find a problem shared with those that understand exactly what you are saying soon makes you aware you and your husband are not alone.
Read through the forum posts and I am quite sure you will find so many are in the same boat.

Where do we go from here?:

pillar2post I can only guess you posted way to much information. As Agog said it is a public forum.
My suggestion is you refine what information we need to know for those able to assist can do so.
Also use a program that will correct your grammar etc. This is not a slight on you, it just makes a post easier to read. I wish you well.

Take time to learn

This post I make on behalf of my son, UNOME, and I and I hope the moderators allow this self indulgence.

For those on this site that have followed our journey since June 2008 I would like to say since joining this forum the help and advice is unrelenting. The support is priceless. To anyone new to this site draw from the strength and resources, read and ask questions. I cannot stress on you enough how important it is to listen to the moderators and others sharing their stories and the suggestions put forth.

To digress, we have not seen Little Miss since January, phone contact has ceased since the number is disconnected. All this has amounted to numerous contraventions leaving no option but to return to the Federal Magistrates court.

Verdad and monaro have worked closely with UNOME and me to prepare affidavits, guidance on how to lodge the same with the court, how to serve and shared their wealth of legal knowledge without hesitation.

Their commitment to UNOME resulted in yesterday he stood, self represented before the FM to present his case. Although he got off to a nervous start the FM made Orders we were all hoping for. So it's back to court in May, feeling a lot more confident, with a lot more learning and work to do, with the knowledge we have verdad and monaro for guidance.

In closing we would like to sincerely thank 4mydaughter for being in court in support of our cause, we wish you well as you progress towards a better life with your little girl. To verdad, again our sincere thanks for all you have done and will continue to do. Peace be with you. To monaro, your understanding goes beyond words, your knowledge of family law and ability to share the same, especially in layman's term is priceless. We cannot thank you enough. God bless.

The journey continues and I hope for those that are travelling with me via these posts draw strength from our experiences.

Where do we go from here?:

Piller2Post you say you live interstate to your daughter and I wonder how that came to pass and how far apart you are. That is just a thought that does not require an answer, but I have found the more information you give to this forum, without being to personal that other parties related to your case will know you are talking about them.
A communication book is commonly used at change over. Each parent writes a short report of information eg. Chip is currently taking X medication for a cold, Chip awoke at 8am today, so should go down for a nap at 11.00am. You may find your ex will not embrace the idea, but you just keep submitting entries.
You said Chip is only 19months old and I can only draw from what the court appointed family consultant said about the use of Skype. Not quite per quote but a child needs to touch and even smell the parent, and Skype will not provide to a young developing relationship.
As already stated by D4E, photos etc all are controlled by the other parent so all you can do {I believe} is have court orders in place that give Chip and yourself regular time together. And if with that in place there are no guarantees.
You have commenced on a very long journey, I wish Chip and yourself a safe one. This site, and the people contained herein really know what they are talking about. Read, learn but most of all, listen. :thumbs:

Do they have a right to know?:

Another example of how valuable this site and the people that contribute are. The reply from Artemis has not only helped faith, but hopefully others that may venture here.
I wish you well faith and again I thank those that are helping my son and me.

Post #20871 by Wendy on March 2nd 2009, 11:19 PM (in topic “Appropriate timeframes for responses.”)

Appropriate timeframes for responses.:

The solicitor used in our case encouraged the use of email as an acceptable form of contact citing it was easier for her to access and act on. The fee remained the same no matter what form you use be it letter, email or phone call.
Personally I suggest you ask your solicitor what they prefer, but bear in mind they are acting on your behalf.
Draw as much as you can from this site, all the reading material is priceless and all the members are helpful.  :thumbs:

Contact refused by wayward parent !:

 O_o How many times can access be denied before taking the case back to court? Since November 2008 the mother has not handed Little Miss over for contact visits four times. The court orders also say Dad can phone at appointed times and more often than not those calls go unanswered, so is that also contravention? What is considered to be serious enough to begin the process again?

Contact refused by wayward parent !:

Thank you D4E for your kind words and advice. As seen by UNOMEs post we did not get to spend the day with Little Miss, making it a fortnight since we have seen her. I know by some standards this is not a long time but none the less heartbreaking.

The feeling of helplessness is a huge factor and the mother firmly believes she is in the right and blatantly ignores the court orders.  :dry:
