Here is another terrible example of the ongoing failures of Family Law, Child Support and Domestic Violence Policy in Australia.
Australians are losing their lives through terrible acts of self harm and violence and our government continues to ignore their culpability.
Individuals must be held responsible for their actions, but that does not negate the failures of policy to provide protection to vulnerable at risk families.
We need leadership and we need it now!

Jeff is struggling with child access restrictions caused by his ex-wife.
She insists that his only time with his children will be supervised at a contact centre. Her new boyfriend has taken over the job of dropping the kids at school and has almost moved in to the home he continues to pays for.
There are no court orders, police are not involved and the staff at the contact centre continue to ask him, why are you here?
Jeff works full time in a good job but is going backwards financially.
He tells us that he pays his bills, the mortgage on the house his ex and kids live in, just manages to cover his living expenses, pays child support and has enough money left over to pay for four one hour visits with his kids each month.
He would see them more but the $400 a month is the limit.
He feels trapped by a system that allows the mother of his kids to make all the decisions about access, and if he doesn't do what she say's, she threatens to call police and get a protection order.
When he did contact police for help, he was told there was nothing they could do to help and he would need to go to the family courts.
He can't move forward with his life, he can see his kids struggling each precious hour he spends with them and the only thing his ex says is that she needs more money.
Jeff killed himself yesterday.
There will be no flowers at his unit where they found his body, the media won't report on his passing, his children will never know the truth and our government will continue to blame fathers for their policy failures.

Another terrible example of how Family Violence policy is failing vulnerable Australian families.
The act of violence that took the lives of these beautiful children and their mother is unforgivable, and is sadly another tragic example of why we must do more to ensure separating families are provided with all the care and support that they need as they work through what are often very difficult changes to their lives.
Protecting our children and keeping parents safe and health after separation must be the priority of policy.
Today our thoughts are with family and friends who are left to pick up the pieces after this senseless crime.

Here’s the truth about Labor’s failed juvenile justice programs in Qld.
Australian families deserve better than this and the failures of policy fall into the hands of government who choose to reward rather than penalise violent perpetrators.
Would you support strict curfew conditions on juveniles to reduce crime and recidivism rates?
Here’s our #PolicySnapShot
Juvenile Justice Reform
Our approach to reducing juvenile crime will see offenders enter the national youth service program prior to re-offending. Our policy includes a nation juvenile curfew combined with redirection programs that focus on training, education and community engagement to reduce recidivism rates.

TROPIC NOW EXCLUSIVE Officer's explosive revelations about 'incredibly dangerous' and 'under-reported' youth crime.
This story will make you want to support your local butcher and boycott the big supermarkets.
Queensland mum Mandy Smith purchased a 500g package of beef mince from her local Woolworths store recently, and paid $7.50 for the packet
When Mandy returned home she weighed the Woolworths mince only to find it actually weighed just over 262 gms.
Woolworths pointed out that the letter “e” next to the weight on products stands for estimate.
It’s called the “average quantity system” (AQS), and according to the National Measurement Institute (NMI), it’s “an internationally agreed method of determining the size or quality of prepacked articles with ‘consistent normal content’”.
The rules of the system state that products labelled 300 - 500 don’t have to be exact, that basically close enough is near enough.
What a rort!
It’s time to support our local community butchers and boycott these large supermarkets who are ripping off Australian families.
What are your thoughts?
