I'll try my best to convey this as it is a little convoluted. To give some context, my parents have separated and my dad has a new partner (we'll call her PW). Not too long after the separation my dad got a VRO against my mum. My mum has been talking to his partner through phone calls, texts and Facebook messages in order to settle financial issues. Today, PW's account has been altered to look like it belongs to my dad. He reported a message that was sent to PW's account a couple of days ago by my mum that it had breached the VRO. The police have viewed the report and are requesting my mum to the police station on Friday.

Essentially, he has created a false report in hopes that it will get my mum in trouble with the law. If this is illegal, what law is it breaking and what kind of punishment would my dad face?

There is nothing more stressful in life than having to fight for children in Family Court. If you are self representing you also have the added weight of needing to write your Affidavit and complete your court documents.

I have years of personal experience with numerous court appearances within the Family Court, through lawyers, barristers as well as self-representing so I truly understand what you are going through.

What The Ghost Affidavit Writer does is remove the unnecessary burden to self-representing families by completing all required documentation (applications, affidavits etc.) for an affordable fixed fee.
