The Family Law Amendment (Family Violence) Bill 2010 should be coming before Parliament this session
For many children involved in the family law process this Bill is extremely important - even though it does not go far enough to protect children.
Children are not the primary focus of family law and their best interests are not being served by decisions made in the courts and through some shared parenting arrangements.
Children are being removed from their primary care giver and sent to live in abusive homes. They are prevented by court orders from having meaningful contact with their loving and protective parent and are prevented from having counselling or any form of support. Suppression orders prevent the general public from knowing what’s going on.
Surely we can do better than this!
Tell your federal politicians (Representatives/MPs and Senators):
"You must vote YES to the Family Law Amendment (Family Violence) Bill 2010 in 2011 when it comes before Parliament. It is an important step towards changing Family Law to protect children’s right to live in a safe and protective home..
“All that is required for Evil to prevail
is for Good men to do nothing”.
As an elected representative you are in a position to do something.
Our children need you to stand up for them!
We are all responsible and answerable to these children – they are the future of this country.
