Desperate, legal advice needed!!!!

Filed under: Child Support,General,Law & Courts — Had_Enough @ 1:42 am

OK, so I have suffered all kinds of financial deprivations over the past 13 years thanks to IRD Child Support and their criminal anti family, anti male Nazi policies. Not only have I suffered but the two children who were in my custody also suffered because I had to take food out of their mouth’s to pay for their mothers lavish lifestyle because after all she had one child in her care and we couldn’t have her contributing to the upkeep of my daughter. So I worked 60 fucking hours per week and eventually one of my kids went back to her because I was never at home due to my 2 jobs and couldn’t spend enough time with him. The more I worked the more money she got and I just paid and paid and paid and paid. My new wife has suffered to. We had no money to do normal married couple things. No trips away, no going out to restaurants, no money to fix broken cars or pay power and water bills, just work, work, work and nothing to show for it thanks to IR Fucking D and their evil money grabbing policies. Just as I thought I saw some light at the end of the tunnel, with only 18 months left to run on my liability, they have put up my liability by an extra $200 per month for no logical reason and are refusing to negotiate and I have been told that if I don’t pay they will take it straight out of my wages. I am not going to let them take my house and everything my wife and I have struggled for when there is only 18 months to go but I can’t see a way out. I just don’t have enough money to pay their ransom and I don’t know what to do. Does anyone know a lawyer who understands the Child Support legislation and can help me. I haven’t slept for 3 nights worrying about how I’m going to pay for everything. I live in Australia and the CSA collect on behalf of their evil amoral bastard IRD CS friends in NZ. Any help would be much appreciated. Happy to provide my contact details on request and I don’t mind paying a fair rate for legal advice.

Another Workplace Death for 12% More Pay

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 5:21 pm

Yesterday 60-year-old Terence Milne suffered what will have been an excruciatingly painful death after being covered in hot, molten tar through an accident at his job. At his age and given his job he was likely to have contributed a lifetime of hard, dirty physical work and now he won’t get to rest in retirement. Our sympathy is extended to his family and associates.

We can expect no sympathy from the feminist brigade or our Ministry for Women. Their attitude may well be “Quick, look the other way and ignore it while we demand women be paid more. He was just another male chauvinist pig with the cheek to earn 12% more than women do on average across the work they do”.

Mr Milne was the third male killed on the job during November, but the fact almost 100% of all workers killed on the job year after year are males is rarely considered worthy of mention. The headlines of the articles about Mr Milne’s death failed to mention the killed ‘worker’ was actually a killed ‘male worker’, whereas if it had been a female her gender would have been headlined and emphasized.

White Ribbon Ambassadors of New Zealand

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,General — Downunder @ 3:21 pm

If you discover a White Ribbon Ambassador in New Zealand, post a link in the comments.

If you identify a WRA (White Ribbon Ambassador) and provide evidence, in the form of a link, of their activities or any prejudice comments against men, your contributions will develop this page.

White Ribbon is a politically biased organisation that does not accept or recognise women’s violence.

Ambassadors may see political advantage for themselves in accepting these positions and representing the politics of White Ribbon, but have they asked themselves the question; is ignoring women’s violence beneficial to society?

Wife’s Infidelity may end up in Employment Court

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 8:29 am

Farm managers usually work very hard, long hours with little time off. This farm manager appears to have been no exception but while he was working, his wife was off fucking the farm owner. No doubt her self-centred sense of entitlement was offended when her husband didn’t spend enough time with her, and/or perhaps she saw an opportunity to exploit a new, wealthier male who already owned a farm. When the manager found out he left his wife and the job, and he is now planning legal action against the employer for constructive dismissal, arguing that the employer forced the manager out of his job by breaching fidelity and trust and thereby making the employment relationship untenable.

Another IRD Child Support Rip Off!!!!

Filed under: Child Support,Law & Courts — Had_Enough @ 11:52 am

Hi All,
I have now seen the ultimate in stupidity and unfairness from IRD CS. I’ve been paying CS for 13 years now and thought I had seen everything but this takes the cake!! I am a Kiwi residing in Australia. I pay my Child Support to the CSA who collect on behalf of the IRD CS. It is calculated in Aussie dollars so if the AUD buys $1.10c Kiwi I would pay the adjusted amount; for example if I earned $100,000 AUD that becomes $110,000 NZD and I am assessed on that rate. That doesn’t worry me too much although the IRD’s failure to take into account the cost of living over here pisses me off but I’m not expecting fairness from IRD CS.
Anyway here’s my point- IRD CS in their wisdom have decided that since the 2 currencies were almost at parity on the 1st of April (the irony of the date always amuses me) that means that if I was assessed at paying, for example $1500 NZD per month that would equate to $1500 AUD per month. So using my example the Australian CSA have me assessed at $1500 AUD per month. Now that would be fine if they also assessed my AUD earnings as being the same in NZ dollars. I would have been very happy with such a scenario but NO, they are still calculating my Australian earnings as being 10% higher than the NZD so $100,000 becomes $110,000. Surely they can’t have it both ways!! So now, when I calculate my earnings on the Child Support calculator I get the assessment amount I would expect once the $ difference is allowed for. That’s the figure that appears on my Online IRD CS assessment but I also have this other magical figure that the IRD CS and CSA have agreed on that actually increases my liability by approximately $200 per month. So, I am actually paying for the difference in the Exchange rate twice. Once for the difference in my actual earnings when allowing for the Exchange rate + a second time due to the fact that the assessed rate was based on the fact that the $s were at parity on April 1st even though the AUD is now 10% higher in value. They say that they will not review this because that’s just the way it is. Does anyone know a good NZ based lawyer I could deal with who can help me because this is bullshit!!

Child Support when Child is in Canada, whereabouts unknown

Filed under: Child Support,General — Had_Enough @ 1:24 am

My youngest child (16 and a half) lives with her mother in Canada. She was born and raised in NZ but her mother was allowed to take her to Canada, against my consent, about 18 months ago. Anyway I phoned Child Support this morning because my daughter and her mother have both disappeared. My daughter has been taken out of her school, the phone goes unanswered and I have no idea where they have moved to. I asked the CS lady how it can be that they continue to take large sums of money from me each month when they have no reliable way of knowing what the mother’s income is, whether or not my daughter is working full time or even if the two of them are still alive. All these factors would potentially affect my assessment if my daughter and her mother were living in NZ. The CS lady told me that if they can’t contact the mother she will just assume that the situation remains unchanged and that I will have to keeping paying child support as usual. SURELY THIS IS A JOKE!!! CS are telling me that they have no way of knowing whether or not the mother is still entitled to CS however they will just assume she is even though they have no idea where she is or what her circumstances are. Does anyone out in MENZ land know anything about CS liability when the mother and daughter have dual citizenship and live in Canada?? Oh and by the way, the money issue is the least of my worries. My daughter lives with a crazy woman in Canada and could be in a very bad living situation but that’s another story and something I am taking up with Child Protective services in Canada. Thanks guys.

URGENT : NZ/AUS/UK Precedents of son with father, daughter with mother

Filed under: General — sharingiscaring @ 10:28 pm

Hi all,

This support group has been more help than you could all ever imagine.

Over two and a half years ago my Japanese wife and her rich adulterous Japanese boy friend planned an international child kidnapping of our two small children which was, by a miracle, stopped.

The Court battles to prevent their lose forever are now at the end. It has cost me everything and more to stay in the struggle not to lose for my children to Japan. My former wife is of course now living with the rich older Japanese man who forever reject offers of peace and compromise.

My wife applied for full custody of both children (= losing them overseas). I understand that when marriages fail sharing must apply in some form, but with the break up of overseas (Japanese) marriages its so hard to enforce any sharing. Thus I have applied for full custody of our daughter with her mother, and full custody of our son with his myself, his father.

I have no money for lawyers and am representing my son and myself.

Can anybody please provide any precedents of cases in NZ/AUS/UK Precedents where custody of the son was given to the father and custody of the daughter with mother please?

Thank you all,
And please keep supporting each other.

Yours faithfully,
SharingIsCaring

The Pussy Pass Remains Alive and Well

Filed under: Gender Politics,Law & Courts,Sex Abuse / CYF — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:09 am

While we have more recently seen occasional examples in which female offenders were given sentences comparable to those given to males, the pussy pass is still evident in most cases.

This female manager behaved violently towards a subordinate, then repeatedly boasted about and celebrated her violent bullying on social media. She was found guilty of possessing an offensive weapon (even the minimized charge represented a pussy pass given by the prosecutor), then was DISCHARGED WITHOUT CONVICTION! because a conviction would have cramped her style in her future management career. Her name suppression was also continued and she was given an opportunity to make this permanent. No male who behaved as she did, taking all her bad behaviour into account, could expect such leniency.

The Rot of Secrecy Now Spreads Through Tax Funded Departments

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:02 am

Government organisations we pay for are becoming increasingly secretive and controlling over information about their activities. The latest example was highlighted in this week’s media reports about our Police demanding that researchers sign onerous contracts before Police will release information. Those contracts give Police the right to control and censor what those researchers write, and Police assume the right to ‘blacklist’ any researcher who doesn’t sign the contract or who breaches it in any way.

Yet Another Homicide Provoked by a Protection Order

Filed under: Domestic Violence,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:26 pm

We have long predicted that protection orders will increase risk for applicants, and there have now been numerous examples of partner homicides that probably would never have occurred if there had been no protection order.

If the guilty verdict against Michael Preston this week was the correct one (even though it appeared to be based on circumstantial evidence and the dangerous reasoning that “It couldn’t realistically have been anyone else so it must have been the accused”), then his case is yet another example of a partner killing provoked by a protection order. She was killed within hours of a protection order being served on her ex-husband Mr Preston, against whom the Family Court was collaborating with her regarding care of their children.

When will we start to get real about the implications of threatening fathers’ relationships with their children? When will we get real about the true risk-increasing effects of protection orders, at least in situations where the respondent posed any signficant risk at all. The feminists and white knights of course live in denial and hope that by making the Domestic Violence Act even more unjust and draconian, that will somehow magically make protection orders more effective. However, the only way to do that would be a ‘final solution’, putting to death or imprisoning for life every male accused by a female of presenting a risk. Anything short of that will increase risk. For example, even if all protection order respondents, or those said to have breached protection orders, are immediately sent to jail, you can expect that when they are released they will be much more bitter and twisted, feeling abandoned and very threatened by their own country, and some will lose hope and/or seek revenge.

Challenge – Handling excessive and inappropriate stress

Filed under: Child Support,Domestic Violence,Law & Courts — MurrayBacon @ 10:22 pm

For a long time, I have been concerned that too often the familycaught$ uses trial by fire, for deciding cases.

As you read the examples that I have listed below, possibly other examples will come to your mind? If so, please add a comment, giving little more than the essential details to show the nature of the real issues and the way that the familycaught$/CYFs used inappropriate pressure or irrelevant issues, to decide the case. If you wish to supply more detailed information, please contact me personally and supply that privately.

Sexist Aspects of the Deportation of Australian Convicts

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:40 am

Absent from media consideration of this issue is any recognition of the sexism that will be inherent in the process of deportation. Firstly, we can safely assume that it will be all or at least disproportionately males who are subject to the process of deportation. Given that women commit about 50% of the most serious family violence towards children, about 25% of the most violent intimate partner violence, and a smaller but still significant proportion of other serious crime, we might expect some significant proportion (perhaps between 10% and 30%) of the deportees to be women but there is no indication that any of them are. This will be due largely to the lower tendency for women to be prosecuted or convicted in the first place including the higher rate with which their criminal behaviour is excused for mental health reasons, and much greater lenience in the sentences given to convicted females.

How to murder your male partner and not get charged.

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 4:53 pm

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/73906230/law-surrounding-victims-who-kill-reviewed-by-commission

Firstly I do not condone family violence or abuse in any form. Or in the workplace for the matter.

The news article reads ‘A review of the law could make it easier for battered family violence victims who kill their abusers to avoid a murder charge’.

That suggests you won’t even get charged never lone see the inside of a court room.

I respect everyone needs a defence but a law that prevents someone from being charged is a bridge too far.

If you are a man, this law makes it OK for the person who murdered you to not be charged if they say you were abusive or violent.

Really?

It is completely unsafe and well beyond justice.

Rape crisis in Europe ignored while UN funds other agenda

Filed under: General — realkiwi @ 11:27 am

The InfoWars people seem to be right on the money here, outlining how totally false statistics are used to paint young men as regular rapists, ie in USA universities, while a rape crisis due to dodgey immigrants is being ignored… reminds me of how our Womens refuges were delisted as a charity for false reports.. meanwhile the only father support organisations are struggling to survive…and there are no funds at all for male victims of DV..

Women muscle in on men’s sports

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 5:52 pm

Watched the rugby semi final All Blacks vs Springboks. Not sure what interviews were shown after the match on NZ television but the broadcast we saw involved an English female interviewer questioning the captains and others. She asked inane questions with hackneyed comments about the Springboks ‘asking a lot of questions’ of the All Blacks in the match and such like. There was no question of particular insight or relevance to the match, such as concerning the large number of penalties incurred by NZ that actually provided the Sth Africans with all their points. It seemed that a female interviewer was chosen out of some ideological principle but she lacked basic understanding of the game and bullshitted her way through. Women feel they must, and are entitled to, muscle their way into every male domain, and believe that men should not be allowed any clubs or domains of their own while female-only groups and services abound. Would we see a male interviewing the captains etc after a major netball match? We doubt it. But if that ever were to happen it’s likely that the man would learn something about the game and ask some useful questions.

Media may be recognising the public mood

Filed under: General,Law & Courts,Sex Abuse / CYF — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 5:30 pm

This editorial from the Herald on Sunday expresses criticism of Welsh police handling of an allegation against Mils Muliaina, in a rare departure from our media’s usual white knight feminist propaganda. It deserves some supportive comments we think.

The Fortunes of Men

The fortunes of men (and I’m talking about the male of the species here) have waxed and waned throughout history, but there have been some defining moments.

Over the years some of those have been mentioned on this site.

What do you think are the defining moments in history for men, both negative and positive?

Control the male own the female

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 5:47 am

For centuries man has been domesticating animals for his own use. Whether it is for labour or production of food, control of the male is a key factor.

If there is a danger, in most cases it will come from the male – shoot the rogue animal.

In modern day New Zealand, where there are more cows than people propping up the dairy giant Fonterra, the same basic principle applies; control the male own the female.

The business of farming.

Humans being animals of the planet, the same principle can be applied. When you herd enough of us together into a confined situation, as in the development of civil societies, laws follow the principle, and humans start the process of domestication of their lessor beings.

The success, wants, needs, and demands of the city soon override our natural state of freedom.

The determination not to lose control of power, position, and privilege, becomes more and more draconian, as men are increasingly restricted and controlled, while women are herded into the stables of civilization.

The Free World is rapidly returning to the servile state, and to the new age of slavery.

Then will come the time, when we can no longer blame Feminism, only our own ignorance.
