My partner's ex has lied in an affidavit and got approved for urgent recovery orders by saying he is an ice addict who physically abuses his 2 and 1/2-year-old daughter. The next family court date is 4th of March for him to be able to file his response and affidavit before then, but what could happen with that? She lied, and his daughter was taken away from him because of it. She moved to NSW without his permission and the family court is in Canberra, so it will cost $20,000 upwards for representation through a lawyer other than legal aid. Can he apply for legal aid in the ACT? Will she have any consequences with regards to her lies? She had lied all through her affidavit by saying she has never used drugs, he used to be abusive and is scared of him and we have proof otherwise. She also emailed him saying if he moved to her town, he could have 45% custody so she has contradicted herself. Will the Family Law judge look at these? I have messages from her telling me if he wants his daughter, he should get rid of me and put up with her being his girlfriend, even though my partner and I have an 8-month-old daughter and have been together for almost 2 years. She also has her own partner and is pregnant with her 3rd kid and only knows who one of the fathers is. The aboriginal legal aid lawyer we have seen here hasn't helped us and said he pretty much just needs to get what he is given or nothing. Any help would be appreciated. Thankyou.
