Long story short, on the 7th, Dec 2015, I was at the start of my usual week with my children, as my ex and I had verbally agreed to a 50/50 care and custody of children arrangement since we separated in 2009. The 7th of December was a pleasant day and evening, aside from my 13-year-old being on her phone almost the whole time, which I did persistently insist she put it down and spend time with the family. As of the 8th Dec, my ex picked both my daughters up to take the youngest to netball, which I was capable of doing myself but he always insisted he do it. That evening, I got an abusive phone call from him claiming that my eldest daughter has been cutting her arms and it was because of me. She is seeing a counsellor though and has refused for me to contact the counsellor for a reason she will not state. I am concerned she is not receiving the appropriate treatment without the full story from both parents. As it stands now, both my daughters tell me they don't want to come back because they are happier there. Their dad earns in excess of 130, 000 per year, I am on Centrelink. I have attempted to contact my ex to arrange time with my children and he has ignored all attempts since the 27th January 2016. Can anyone help me about recovery orders or is there anything else I can do under Family Law? My marriage to him was very psychologically and emotionally abusive and he manipulated me to serve his needs, I am concerned he is coaching my girls by way of parental alienation and enmeshment.
