False allegations need to have some form of penalty when proven false.

I'm a grandparent that has had my grandson in my care for sometime and provided a safe and secure and loving inviroment, I in the family courts fight a father who has a long history of drugs and violence and has taken a sudden interest in the child who is now being exposed to this behavior, and still he is forced to go there frequently, this stable little boy is becomming insecure at an alarming rate, and there is little I can do about it even with a heap of evidence and the child volanteering incidents to myself, psycologists and authorities that a child should not see ,the courts seem to be hell bent on moving him from the only family has known, moving his town school ,from being safe and secure and placing him in this damaging inviroment ,because I am a grandparent and not a parent, This is heartbreaking, but at 6 he has no say.

I have not seen my grandson for over 18 months since his mother lied to police and has caused havoc since. Is the Family Court really the Women's Court as they seem to get all the benefits and non of the consequences of their deceit. I am a grand mother without a grand son. More importantly, my son is a Father without his child. The whole system is skewed towards women.

I believe family law needs to be reviewed as it is creating a huge burden on families as a whole fathers are struggling to move forward in their life and future when they are still left to take care of the children from previous relationship even when the other partner has moved on and are in a new relationship pulling a lot more money into the house then what the struggling father is leaving him unable to provide for his new family it isn't fair when a mother can move on in a new relationship and her partners pay is not taken into consideration and when a man moves on his children to his current partner are not taken into consideration Even though they are his responsibility to take care of !!! The system is not working it is not fair it is causing significant strain on fathers and their are alarming rates of suicide amongst men that are being failed by the system it is unacceptable to think this issue is being swept under the carpet and there have been no changes made to date !!!! If a review is not made then we will continue to see fathers taking their own lives in desperation parenting is a very personal matter and a relationship break down is a very stressful and upsetting time for everyone involved and something needs to be put into place to make things fair and manageable for both parties and that children are taken care of in both previous and current relationships visitation is also a huge problem within the system it has made it unaffordable for men to get something in place with the courts so that dad's can have access to their children that they are being forced to pay for yet a mother can sit there and pick and choose when I can and can't see my kids depending on her mood it hurts me and my children ... It's just not right how ever you look at it !!!! I love my kids and would give them the world if I could paying to raise them has never and will never be an issue to me but watching my hard earned money go on raising my exes new child is just unacceptable more control needs to be established fathers should be able to see where his money is going ... I can see why fathers are taking their life they are working for nothing the stress and heart ache of not seeing their kids ect is just to much emotionally I feel as though I would be better off not here as well it just gets to much for us the fact that nothing is being done makes me feel like going to sleep and not waking up HELP!!!

The family court today is totally dysfunctional: its overly worked, underpaid professionals do not have the time and professional resources to attend to children and families in critical conflict. As it operates today, the court perpetuates physical and psychological child abuse.
