Hi, I am in the process of trying to get a protection order against my ex-partner. I have been granted a temporary order. His lawyer also asked to be able to lodge further affidavits. The ex originally threatened to put a cross application in, but didn't, as he has stated in family law matters that I wasn't violent. However, in his affidavits, he has now said that I was abusive and blah blah blah. However, what I was wondering was about these affidavits supporting his application. My son just informed me that someone I thought was a friend was going to lodge a supporting affidavit. She has never even witnessed any minor disagreement between my ex and I, although I know that my ex has been visiting her and her hubby a fair bit since our break up. I don't think she would lie, so what can she lodge an affidavit about? I know he started a smear campaign based on lies before I even left, so can she put in stuff that he has told her?
