Hi everyone. I came to Australia with my now ex husband and our two children, who are now 4 and 6 when he got a job over here. Our marriage failed very quickly and I suggested we should all go back to the UK. My visa was linked to him and his job, and I was still a full time mum with a baby, and no right to work here. He refused. It got a bit messy and ended up in court, and his stance was that even if I was allowed to return to the UK with the children he would stay here for his job. I didn't want my kids to go through that and so I borrowed a heap of money and went back to full time study so I could get another visa. Fast forward to now, I am now in another relationship. We have registered the relationship, have lived together for over a year, and we are very settled. I've finished my studies, have set up a small business, and applied for a permanent residency visa in Australia. The kids are at school and have a really good life. And my ex husband just filed me with a court application saying he has lost his job, he will lose his visa, and we should all move back to the UK. He has a second statement saying if I did not want to relocate back to the UK he should be allowed to take the children to live in Hong Kong with his family. His grounds are that my business doesn't earn much money (I only do it part time, as my partner is a high earner) and he says I am not able to support the children properly. And that us all moving is the only way for the children to have both parents in their lives. He doesn't have a new job in either of the countries he is saying he should be allowed to move the children to. He hasn't paid the correct amount of child support in 18 months. I'm so angry that I had to completely change my life and go through a lot of hardship in order to allow my kids to continue a proper relationship with him. I'm also terrified that the court will think I SHOULD move back to the UK with him. Of course I don't want to happily stay here and have my kids distraught because their father has been deported. But I have followed him around the world and put my life on hold for years so he could pursue his career. Obviously I know it comes down to the judge. But I know that the family court puts the children's best interests first and likes to keep families together in relation to custody of children. Is there a similar onus put onto how settled a family is in their new lives etc?
