Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi there, on the 15th October my wife of 24 years dropped a bomb the she doesn't love me, leaving with 3 children aged 10,11,14, and no further reason given. Wendy (ex-wife) also said she is looking for a rental but is having trouble as there are no rentals available. So I came up with a solution that I would move into my camper trailer at the back of our semirural property and she can stay in the house so our kids can have a secure roof over them and I told her that time was not a problem and I was happy to live in the camper until she found a rental and I would even help her physically and financially. As a disabled pensioner with multiple back fractures and Wendy our 10 and 15 year old children being my carer's. I moved into the camper on Friday and my children preferred to stay in the camper with me as Wendy hasn't left the room since the 15th except to purchase more alcohol and to use the toilet. She has done no household duties or been a carer in any way for the last 18mths. I have cooked every meal since the 15th, done all the laundry and all home duties as well as keep my campsite shipshape. We also have recently got 2 puppies and have a old dog and cat. Last night I went to go inside as I wanted to pop it my 11yo son's mango seed in the fridge as he had watched a instructional video on how to raise a mango tree yesterday. On reaching the back door I found the flyscreen locked which we have never done since we purchased the house 2.5years ago. I went around to our carport door and I had to unlock the never locked flyscreen and attempted to enter the kitchen. Wendy rushed me at the door and tried to slam me and Pedro (17week old jack Russell ) in the door I pushed the door and Wendy back as half of my body was inside, immediately after wholly entering the kitchen she has immediately started screaming numerous rants along the lines of me being pshyco, murderer, intruder and proceeded to physically assault me with fists, nails and kicks. Whilst protecting myself from her I dropped my keys which she immediately went for, in the struggle we both ended up on the floor with Wendy getting up and kicking me over my body from head to toe with Pedro wrapped in my arms trying to protect him as he was trying to protect me. Wendy the got a pycnh thru to Pedro and as I was on my back I did the only the I could and I kicked out to push away and yelled do not touch the dog hit me if it helps but don't hurt Pedro. She let me get to my feet then went back into punching I dropped Pedro ad her obvious aim was to hurt him and grabbed both of her wrists and pushed her up to the oven and held her for a minute or there abouts until she said that she would not strike again. 20 mins later the police have turned up and told me that I have to go and cannot return for 72hrs,they happily gave them my gun cabinet keys which were hiding in the camper 48 hrs prior with concern for kids and myself. I can nearly move and the police at Bunbury station wouldn't charge her with assault and even though I said my only concern is the kids and Wendys not a capable mother in any way. I had already so called the police whilst laying on the ground in pain after exiting my house and I went to meet them out front but they were already there. I would appreciate help in any way as the legal aid family law in Bunbury is three weeks behind and I have contacted you as instructed to by the police.....
