So the issue between myself and my now ex have had a terrible turn. He brought this other woman to my house and moved her right in, resulting in him kicking me while I was holding my daughter. The police turned up and I have put a statement in and they have taken pictures of my injuries so there is an AVO. I recently moved back to Sydney with his parents due to me not having anywhere else to go at the moment. Myself and my now ex are not on talking terms at all, at the moment. My daughter turns 1 tomorrow and he will not talk to me about coming to see her, but will talk to his mother which bothers me because she is not my daughter's mother and I don't feel safe him seeing her or myself tomorrow because of what he has done. So I'm up in the air about deciding whether to do mediation or go straight to family law court. There are a number of things that can stop him from seeing him the children full stop if I have to go to court. 1. He is mentally unstable 2. He smokes marijuana 3. He recently lost his license for doing 165km/h in a 100 zone 4. His new partner doesn't have custody of her own 3 children 5. She went to jail for attempting murder as well as kidnapping 6. She also smokes marijuana HELP! I want to do what's best for my children and I know that he loves his kids, but I fear for their safety if he has them.
