    My children and I have just come through Family Violence. He was convicted 14 months ICO with rehab and AVO in place for children and I for two years. I thought we could breathe for awhile. Not even three weeks later I now have Federal Court papers for a date in December for him going for custody. I now have to face my abuser and fight for the safety of my children.
    Why would I have been served Federal Court papers and not Family Court papers for Child Custody?
    If there is a AVO would it go in my favour for custody?
    I have evidence of further family violence. Psychologist reports that the children are terrified of their father etc.
    I did relocate 3.5 hours away and have psychologist recommendations to do so to be close to my family for support.
    Any advice appreciated.

    Answer - standard practice.

    Answer - Yes
    Contact legal aid asap.
    The relocating without dad's consent is a problem. Get yourself some legal representation asap.
