    My partner and his ex are going to family court at some stage for his visitation rights to his children. We live in Vic and she lives in QLD with the kids.

    We lodged paperwork for courts and we either have to re-lodge for family court in QLD or provide an affidavit as to why it should be held down here in VIC. There are two parts to the application, one for visitation and one for the risk of potential abuse.

    Would the fact that I'm in my third trimester of pregnancy with our baby be enough to keep it down here as my partner is this baby's father and is also the provider for our family which already consists of 7 children. Or would we need to find another reason?

    Note: the children's mother also works casually and has care of the 4 kids. Has a partner, though.

    So, is this mostly just regarding the State that you want the matter heard in?
