Hi, we live in Brisbane. The kids' dad and I separated in Jan 2015. He had the second weekend custody of children until April when I put a domestic violence order on him because of harassment and past physical abuse in front of my children. He then decided he didn't want them in June. He took the kids every second weekend with his dad, kicking our oldest, who's 7 and our oldest telling our middle child who's 4 he would "f*cking kill him"; they are his father's words. I stopped his visitations and now he gets them back this weekend, but our 7 year old told him he's not going to his house. My ex hasn't seen his kids for a total of 6 months this year and now wants 50 percent custody of children. I've always been a stay at home mum and he's in the army. He can be deployed or sent out at any time.
