    Under QLD Right to Information Law, is it possible to get records of police call outs to a particular house if you do not live there? Or about police records ( assault charges) for the Ex?

    Nope - no rights to any police records that don't relate to you directly...

    What do you want them for? Are you and your ex currently parties to Court proceedings?

    What about where it involves a child? Sick of getting told my house is unsafe, or that I can't provide stability because I have a full time job and won't be able to stay at home with the 7 year old child when I know of at least two violent incidents at the Ex house when the child was there.

    No court yet, we are getting to that stage though

    If it goes to Court and the information in the police reports is relevant to the case and would bring clarity to the issues, you can seek leave to subpoena them. If an ICL is appointed and thinks the information in the police reports would be useful they will likely seek to subpoena it, saving you the hastle.

    There can be a lot of ridiculous nastiness between separated parents. Is your house unsafe? If not, just think of these kinds of slurs as his issue not yours.

    Go to court - but make your case about why the kid should spend time with you, not about how the other parent is a twit...
