This is an injustice and shows no care for the children

I am beyond amazed at the stupidity of our court system! How a judge can deem the children's mental health at risk to be sending them to their father in Columbia not grave enough, so let's send them anyway... WTF!!! Make them leave their mum and grandparents and all that is familiar. Send them to a foreign country where they don'r speak the language and the only person they vaguely know is their father, who will be working much of the time. Put them into a school system that they don't understand either the language or the work... Tell me that alone is not a recipe for disaster?? Maybe he has more money than the mum but how does that help if they have no security or stability?
The children need to stay in Australia with mum and keep being supported by the entire family and community that they have now. Anything less is criminal!

Seriously what is wrong with our legal system?! The children were born here with the support of a loving family .. that’s what children need! Our legal system honestly believes that these little ones will have a better upbringing in Colombia without their mother who has been raising them.. with a father who travels for work?? Seriously traumatise these children.. destroy their happy little lives.. Well done!
I just hope that I Never need our legal system to help me...

This is so disgusting!! To even consider to rip these poor Australian children from The love & safety of their mother and grandparents Rural home, to be sent against their will, to A dangerous country like Colombia, to obviously a dishonest man, is totally insane and ludicrous. I have been to Columbia and it is potentially a very dangerous country. Three small children being sent there without their mother or their grandparents, to Such a dangerous insecure country and not knowing anybody or Having any Real family support other than this dishonest father, is absolutely ridiculous. Peter Dutton should have his children ripped out of his family and sent off to some foreign dangerous country and see how he likes it!! I’m totally disgusted at this man Peter Dutton. Who the hell does he think he is, does he even have a soul, or an ounce of compassion or understanding of what this would do to these poor children, not to mention the mother and grandparents Ongoing fear & anxiety. Peter Dutton is obviously a megalomaniac. For him to even think this is the right course Of action, in the way of treating a family and traumatising multi levels of a family In this way, it’s Absolutely disgusting.
It makes my blood boil !!!!!郎郎

Financial and psychological control has become worse in Australia over the course of Covid19. Surely the courts won't tolerate this abuse of human rights. Children's needs must come first. Who was the judge? Doubtless a leftist bully.

These children are Australian, and have loving, supportive links to family over here. Moving to Columbia wound psychologically damage them

These children are Australian Citizens.
This judge is beyond STUPID....Wake up family court and see what's happening here.
Our family legal system is an absolute joke. Everyone knows it.
Do not send these children to Colombia.
They are Australian Citizens..
