Long story short: My mother beat up my sister. My sister didn't press charges. My mother took advantage of this and filed for Intervention Orders against the entire family on a fake story she made up with zero proof. At court I was lied to by VLA and was coerced into consenting to an IVO without admission and now its on my record, destroyed my life and has caused me severe psychophysical trauma.

On top of this: She lied she was the owner of my home, and I was charged for being in my home and refusing her entry (she had no access). I was charged a second time when I confronted a burglar breaking into my home.

So in a nut shell: I'm only 23yrs old and have a now pointless Bachelors of Criminology and Justice. I've never done anything wrong in my life, never got into trouble with the law yet alone at school. Now due to my mother beating my sister's head in and lying to the courts about the incident and now taking my own home, furniture and pets from me and destroying my life at such a young age, I don't know what to do.

I tried to appeal my IVO in the County Court but the Magistrates Court stuffed up and gave them the wrong case number and my appeal was thrown out. Now because its outside of 30 days, I'm now stuck with a fake IVO, 2 completed Diversions, and bad record and will now lose my house, pets, furniture etc. to my mother who is now super happy, living it up and got away with perjury. I had evidence about the incident but the court didn't want to hear it, the whole contested hearing was one-sided, literally my mother was on the stand for 2 days and the court never gave the other 3 parties a chance to give evidence and have their say and now my life is over just as I began to enter my adult years.

So, is life over? Or is there something I can do about this? I've been wronged and punished by courts over literally a fairytale, I have troubles sleeping at night knowing how EASY it is for things like this to happen.

What sickens me the most is, my sister, who was the victim, apologises to me and blames herself. This is not on and absolutely disgusting. I've even tried to contact the media but nobody wants to hear it. My story is an example of our crappy court system FAILING.

Apparently she hasn't lived in my house since I was forcibly removed by a piece of paper.

Prior to that? Due to her excessive violence 4-5 years ago, I asked her nicely to leave (with police). Since then she's only been visiting.

My local postie has been at my address more than her over the past 4-5 years to put that in perspective.

The dummies at the police station and the court ruled in her favour because:

1. She's a woman
2. I'm 23 and she's almost 50

So me being a young male, I guess nobody believes me. It's laughable because I provided titles, rates, bills, ambulance reports etc. and they didn't give a toss.

So... I'm a criminal with an IVO BECAUSE my mother bashed my sister's head in. Let's let this sink in for a moment. And to put the icing on the cake, I wasn't even in the house when it happened!

To add insult to injury... A man who was in the same position as me, got his name cleared, all charges removed, and made VicPol have to pay him $60,000. And he actually assaulted someone.

Me? I did nothing, got my life destroyed and now she's gunning for my house, claiming my dad forced me to buy it as it was supposed to be hers and she's using the IVO against me.
