I've been married for almost 8yrs living in NSW. My husband & I have 2 children under 5yrs. I want to leave my husband and take my kids with me. What will happen if I took my children back to Qld? I've no family or friends here for support, it's depressing, which is why I need to go back! My husband does not help me out with anything. I do everything from cooking washing/putting dishes away, even maintaining the lawns! He is more than happy to help his family or friends out (even when he is sick). I also never get help with the kids. He will either go outside work on his cars or sit watch tv while on his phone! He is not good with money either. When I was working, I would make 1200 a fortnight & he would only give me $150 out of the money I worked hard for! He has threatened to kill me a few times (something he says out of anger and has denied & the last threat was years ago and I have no proof of any of it). He's never really laid a hand on me, apart from one time he slapped me across the face in front of a room full of people. That was 6 years ago! Although I do feel bad about wanting to take our kids but I just need to leave before I fall into a deep depression. My children deserve to see their mum happy! I just want to know, what are my rights under family law? I cannot stay here any longer, I need to be around positive people that support me! Please no nasty comments, I've been wanting to ask this for years, just don't know who to turn to for help!!
