Family Court in Australia--You can’t handle the TRUTH



The truth about the Family Courts in Australia

- By Rebecca Bliss

Look at the system

It’s such a shame

Our children are suffering

And the courts are to blame.

To the family courts

There is no excuse

That what you are doing


They give out ‘shared custody’

Even if it puts kids in danger

The child’s ‘best interests’

Are determined by a stranger.

It is the Family Courts

Who are shattering lives

By giving kids to men

Who beat up their wives.

They say ‘To Violence

Australia Says No’

But women speak up

And their kids have to go.

When a parent is violent

It is simply not fair

To ignore all the evidence

And enforce this ‘shared care’.

A child should live

Where he or she chooses

Not be forced into staying

With child abusers.

Lawyers get involved

When decisions get made

But they don’t care about kids

They just want to get paid.

When a mum finds out

That her child’s been abused

She finds that in court

She becomes the accused.

When someone speaks out

About how the courts fail

They get fined, or worse,

Even end up in jail.

Not many know

About the Courts wrong-doing

News crews can’t cover it

Or the Courts threaten suing.

You won’t hear what goes on

In your Sunday Mail

Because reporters have been warned

It will put them in jail.

So it’s all a ‘big secret’

About what really goes on

They don’t want you to know

Because they know it is wrong.

It’s not in the papers

It’s not on the news

Because when someone tries

It’s the court who sues.

How many more

Kids have to die

As a result of these courts

Letting abuse slip by.

To the Family Courts

There is blood on your hands

We are sick of giving in

To your ridiculous demands.

Open your eyes-

It could happen to you

The need for a change

Is long overdue.

If they want to play God

And put kids lives at stake

Then judges must be liable

For the decisions they make.
