Can my son be fined or punished
Answered 11 months ago
My son separated from his wife and moved into my home. From the very beginning he had his 3 children 3 days a week. His ex wife, presented him with centerlink forms claiming support for the 3 kids stating she had them 6 days a week and he had them for only one. He signed the form agreeing with that statement under the threat from her that she has would stop the kids from seeing him and he them. My son lives for his kids. I don't know how long she received the benefits under that arrangement. They are now divorced and she works but it has been a harrowing time for the kids and especially my son who has endured countless abusive episodes from his ex wife and she has threatened many times to take the kids from him. He lives in fear of what she will come up with next. Will he be punished for lying under threat?
