Paul is a NSW dad in his 40’s. This is his story in his words.
“My wife left me in 2017. We’d been together ten years and had two children. I had a bad car accident and ended up with a broken back and neck. She was my power of attorney. She used that to clear out my bank. She also withdrew money on my home loan, ran a GoFundMe to cover my medical bills. It was a scam. I was in a public hospital. I only found out and pieced it all together when a lady contacted me on Facebook.
My wife earns around $250,000 and [her new partner] earns $500,000. It’s all about money. She used my brain injury to get a temporary DV intervention order placed on me. She’s using near-unlimited income to keep dragging me through the courts and make me suffer. My solicitor said I could fight the DV order, but his advice was to accept it and save the money.
