I took the children off her and hid them as she was using weed + ice and was diagnosed as PTSD. She had hit one to the face with a hard open hand causing a blood nose, so I took the children and went to the cops to report it. They didn't act on it. I called DHS and they said they would act and didn't. I went to the primary school and they said they would investigate and didn't. I ended up in court after being railroaded by her lawyer as mine was unavailable . I ended up facing a giant affidavit from her and her son, which was full of lies to which I was given only 2 working days to reply to and my replies were not submitted by the Barrister whom I fired. The family court ordered an FCC who did what they appear to do...badly...but decided that I coached the kids and didn't believe them or me and ordered the children returned in the interim. The family court has appointed an ICL, whom I presume is waiting for me to file something? Meanwhile the courts have handed the children back to the drug using abusive and neglectful mother as I see it. So I get 3 weeks ordered no contact as I supposedly brainwashed the kids to make up stories or something and then am supposed to be great full at receiving 1/2 hour phone call once per week and every second weekend with them? All this without submitting a single response or document or speaking in family court? So all her affidavit lies are listed as closed in the portal which I take to mean I don't get to reply? Meanwhile the other family members housed with the children are violent towards me and assaulted me last Christmas, resulting in both children being on a protective order with me against her brother which she ignored? The son from a previous relationship has spent more time in jail than anyone I know. Where is the justice for these children who nobody believes?
