My ex lives in QLD and I live in NSW. My daughter flies to me for visitation but has expressed she wishes to live with me. She's 10. My ex remarried to a man who has 3 children (full custody of 2 of them). The 2 he has full custody are mentally disabled, she herself has another child to another man who is also mentally disabled. Her friends have contacted me and expressed their concern for my daughter's wellbeing in her care - not getting cared for appropriately as she has her hands full with the three mentally disabled children as her husband works fulltime. She has no family in her area for help and has expressed she's had enough and can't do it anymore... My daughter is due to return to my house for visitation in the coming weeks and given all the information, I am considering breaking the family court orders and not sending her home and going for full custody. If I did this, what would be the repercussions? I want what's best for my daughter and to keep her safe... We're due to go to mediation next month to change the orders but I know my ex will never willingly let her stay with me. My ex and I do not get along and she has kept her from me numerous times in the past.
