I left a 4 year emotional and abusive relationship and took my kids with me after his latest attack consisted of strangling me. I got an avo against him but he hasn't gone to court for it yet because it keeps getting adjourned. Meanwhile - his solicitor has been contacting me because he wants to have a mediation thing to arrange a parenting plan. I do NOT want him to see the kids due to his abuse to them (they are only 1&2) but I can't seem to get any advice from Legal aid or anyone! What do I do? Right now it feels like everyone is favouring him at the moment. For almost 2 months he was claiming Centrelink benefits for having care of the kids and I wasn't seeing a cent- even though I've had both in my care the whole time. No one seems to be listening to me at all.
