My sister's 5 year de facto relationship has just broken down and her partner moved out back after the separation to his parents, leaving her in an expensive flat with no job and no money. She cannot move to a cheaper flat with no job. They ran a business together which she worked in, but he has since corerced her into handing over the business, leaving her jobless and stole all the money out of it, and left her with nothing. He has pretty much set her up to fail and is is claiming he can take his son 100% care and she can see her son at weekends. All of our family are in WA and she desperately wants to come back here but does not want to break the law. She is in a desperate situation left to pay the rent and feed her 2 year old son and medical expenses. Next week she will be in a Women's Refuge if she isn't allowed to return to WA. There are no family court orders, he has just flat out said no to her taking their son. We think he has breached his rights to his son by cutting off the finances and not providing for him. He also admitted to an alcohol problem for which he sought counselling and is unable to care for his son on his own without is parents help. Can she go to WA considering her circumstances and file for custody of children or can she at least go on a short 'holiday' to alleviate the stress she is under? She has a job offer in WA and is able to be supported by my father where he will also provide a home for his Grandson.
