    I agree to stay out of it as no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

    My dad doesn't have much of a temper, does not come across as aggressive at all. He isn't. He was always completely calm and in control of his actions when he struck any one of us.

    Do people make these kinds of allegations when there is no dv whatsoever....or out of the blue or because they have PND?

    I realise PND can be more extreme for some people but taking out an AVO (or similar) because of PND seems like it's drawing a long bow.
    Perhaps the simplest explanation is most likely the one that is closest to the truth? That is, maybe he is a perpetrator of domestic violence?

    Why would anyone outside their relationship be aware of this. DV can be such a private and painful experience. I realise it would be painful to imagine that this might be possible of K, OP.

    Stay out of it. The courts and police will sort it out. If he has a lawyer that where he should be getting his advice from.

    Default Need advice for a friend..

    You probably should leave it up to the police and the courts and just stay out of it...

    I'm sorry, that's probably not what you want to hear!!!!

    Yeah I get that some men are violent but hypertherically if he isn't (and I know he's not. You can all say/think whatever you want) what can he do?
    What happens when some makes false allegations against you?

    What's he doing sending you messages?

    Chances are whatever the truth is, you only know a small portion of it.

    I wouldn't engage in chit chat with K about his marriage to his wife.

    unfortunately there isnt that much that you can do. Only be supportive and ... well .. just 'there' for your friend.

    Hopefully he gets things sorted out a bit in court.

    Because we are friends. He didn't know who else to go to. His parents are overseas on holiday and didn't want to say anything to them yet.

    I'm with the others. Simplest explanation would be that she has good reason for the order. I went to highschool with a guy who, as it turns out, is attracted to children. I knew him very well for about 10 years...never would have guessed.

    If you want to support him, just be there as someone to talk to. Otherwise leave it to the courts.

    It sits uncomfortable with me for a male (ex) to PM a partnered female about his relationship woes. If his parents aren't around ... doesn't he have any other fiends?
