Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My sons, son has been taken away from his mother in NSW. Due to neglect and abuse. She moved states without his permission and refused to contact him. Now all her five children are in care.

John Melis, Expert

Hi! You’re speaking with John Melis, a solicitor in Australia.

You may commence proceedings in the family court.

You can run the case yourself.

The family court has a do it yourself kit which you can then complete the initiating application.

Just follow the instructions on the application form.

To obtain a copy of the application, go to the family court website and select forms.

Once you complete the application, file the same with the court and the other party.

Will DHS look at giving my son, his son without going to court.

If there is sufficient evidence for the case, it is possible. Otherwise the matter will proceed subject to DHS or a court order.
