I'm sick of it.
I was sick of it when I gave birth and gave a paternity test to Centrelink and I was still slammed by receiving a letter saying I wasn't doing enough to collect child support.
I was sick of it when child support said "we can't force him to sign" because he refused to admit he was my daughters father, even after a paternity test for his own certainty, and he refused to sign her birth certificate or a statutory declaration that he was my daughters father.
And so, I was punished, emotionally, and financially each time due to his rights not to admit he was a father, while I was a mother on my own to this beautiful newborn.
I am sick of it, but it continues after 3 years of torment and nasty institutions such as the AAT that act like they've grabbed the scum of the world and turned them into members to hurt single mothers and the most vulnerable as much as possible in my opinion, I still get the "I can't make him sign".
He agreed I would have sole care, which I've had since her birth, but now that he has to sign documents, he hasn't even responded. I get asked for this all of the time by schools and doctors, but he wants to hurt us as much as possible, and even though he originally agreed "in principal" he hasn't signed, while my lawyers have already charged me $600 more than the fixed fee I was assured.
So you can't force him to sign, then why are women forced to have his signature in so many instances? Why am I still paying for his legal misconduct?
Who knows? He's a crooked lawyer, and has all crooked lawyers in Melbourne jumping, but why is he allowed to commit fraud and corruption blatantly and harm children and women with all evidence there just because he is a lawyer?
I don't want him to sign anything, I want the law to make him sign. He isn't above the law just because his father is a well known lawyer and principal of his firm. Do something, make him obey the same laws the rest of us have to.
