A VIOLENT child rapist serving 16 years in jail and a domestic violence perpetrator locked up in immigration detention want the Family Court to order their children to visit them behind bars.
While the cases are not related, they are far from isolated -with experts saying prisoners Australia-wide are seeking court orders to maintain contact with children.
Speaking exclusively to News Corp, two desperate mothers have revealed they are struggling with the financial, legal and emotional burdens of having to navigate the family law system with men who are locked up.
In the first case, a woman called Sonia was horrified to learn her former husband – who raped a nine-year-old relative – wants a judge to order their 16-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter to visit him in Darwin Correctional Centre.Back to News
