A personal story offered to the 2019 Inquiry into the Australian Family Court.
On 30 day of August in the Swan Hill Magistrates custody of my son is taken away from me as described in these 4 documents. It is not possible to have different orders regarding interim and sole custody in the same matter.
The marriage had not been unhappy as described. It was however under under tremendous financial stress due to the Botel. SMITHERS was judge below who refers to Ms Serafini as my lawyer. The EDNEY orders related to property and child tax (aka support to some).
The scam hearings had more to do with keeping me busy with child access so as not to pursue the botel injustice.
Karen passed away in 1995 and my son finally came back to me not through some kind of justice but rather because I chose the wife of Justice SMITHERS to be my lawyer.
I have documentation for hearings at Swan Hill, Melbourne, Kerang, Box Hill, Bendigo, Geelong and Dandenong.
In 2012 I finally discovered how media, law and government departments combined to destroy our family so as to stop the botel.
