    hi bex, what is the situation with the house you are in?? rent, lease, mortgage, anyway for you get out of the house without it costing you money? If you can just leave and you have some accomodation available with your folks in WA, contact centerlink for advice on paying for the cost of moving home. Can they direct you to what is available? I imagine there is some agency, salvos, lifeline, anyone that knows what is available for you to get to where you and your children will have the most support. Good luck with everything, Marie.

    I was just going to ask you to check, are you allowed to leave the state with your children? Can you cross a border without your ex's permission?

    Just don't want you to get into any trouble.

    Hugs, good luck, hope it all works out.

    I don't have much advice I just wanted to give you big cyber hugs for obviously making a tough decision that couldn't have been easy for you.

    With moving back to WA I am not sure you are allowed to take them across state lines without the fathers permission this can cause many custody issues.

    Good luck and I hope everything works out for you

    Go and see a community legal centre or call your local womens legal service. If you tell me what state you are in I can find you the contact details. Big hugs.

    He knows full well I will be taking them. That will not be an issue.

    He will be okay with it? Because him knowing its something you plan to do and him allowing it are not the same thing.

    Could he buy you out of the house so you get some money and can move?

    If you're amicable enough you could push through with the renovations... The ones that absolutely need completing before selling... And the sell. Good luck.

    Are you 100% sure it won't be an issue? Your ex has the power to make you return to the state you currently reside in if you move without his permission.

    Same as everyone else here, please make sure you are well aware he could make you return at any time.

    Huge to you, it can't have been an easy decision, especially with 6 kids. You really need support right now so I hope you have some locally too.
