Bennelong By-Election (that was held on 16 December 2017)


Hon Anthony Fels

Hon Anthony Fels

We thank everyone who supported our candidate, Anthony Fels (pictured above), in the Bennelong By-Election that was held on 16 December 2017.


1. Introduction.                            

Family law and child support issues can consist of property and superannuation splitting, child access, child support payments, allegations of family violence and/or child abuse, parental alienation, relocation of children, forced removal of children by welfare authorities or some other similar issue.

Once having been involved in one or more of the above issues, most people will invariably ask themselves one (1) or two (2) of the following questions.

. 1. What was the cause of their unfair and inequitable result?

. 2. How can this system be fixed to prevent this problem from happening to other people, in the future?.

The answer can be found in the fact that the family law and child support problem is caused by an agenda.

This agenda is “equal pay for one gender“.  The “less than equal” gender is normally the female gender (although it can be the male gender in some cases).

The process to achieve this aim of equality has become both unfair and unrealistic.

Our solution is quite simple – equal parenting and the capping of child support payments.

We want equal parenting as the starting point, after either divorce or separation. We also want a realistic cap on child support payments. This is to provide fairness and equality.

Therefore we need your support by either being a member (free) of our party and/or voting for our party at the next Federal Election.

2. The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting).

The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) is an Australian political party registered with the Australian Electoral Commission.

The party’s membership mainly consists of divorced and separated parents, their spouses and partners, grandparents, relatives, friends and anyone else who believes that children have a right to be cared for by both their parents.

Everyone is very welcome to join the Party – this is regardless of your marital or relationship status and regardless if you are have a different or same sex background. No questions are asked by us in that regard (nor should these questions on your marital background be asked by anyone).

All parents, spouses, partners grandparents, relatives, friends and any interested persons are encouraged to join our political party.

Our latest submission is the Submission to the Inquiry Into A Better Family Law System – 19 April 2017.

3. The 2017 AEC Review.

We were first registered as a political party with the AEC in 1998. Since then, we have successfully passed the last six (6) Australian Electoral Commission reviews that were carried out in 2003, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2017..

4. Our Recommended Voting Preferences.

We would recommend that your second preferences go to the Pauline Hanson’s One Nation and Christian parties; then to the Nationals and the Liberals; then to the Labor Party and lastly to the Greens. However, of course, that decision would ultimately be your decision.

6. Our Aim and Objectives.

a). Aim

The aim of the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting)  is to:

a. Minimise government interference in decisions that affect separated families.

    and to

b. Maximise the initiative of individual parents to make those decisions.

The parents and the guardians of their children are the best people to determine what is the right thing to do for their children – not someone from either the Government or the Family Court.

b). Objectives.

The objectives of the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) are to:

  • Change Family Law legislation, so that children have the right to see both parents and be involved with their children.

and at the same time

  • Change Child Support legislation so that child support is fairer (for both parents*).

(* child support does not help either parents with the 43.8 per cent unemployment rate for payers of child support payers).

7. Our Policies.

Our policies and the legislative changes that we require can be found by clicking onto the items below marked in blue:-

  • The legislative changes need to be made to our current legislation. can be found at  essential legislative changes  Too often have we heard from our local Members of Parliament saying that they are looking at the issues (when in reality they are going to do nothing).

8. Submissions, Speeches, Photos and Media Interviews.

Our party has made numerous submissions, speeches, street protests and media interviews. These include the following:

  • NCPP(EP) submissions to various Government and non-Government inquiries since 2003. Our latest submission is to the Family Law Unit of the Attorney-General’s Department on their Draft Cross-examination Bill. The party’s submission is dated 11 August 2017. As noted in our submission, if this bill is successful then it simply create extra work for the solicitors. This is without any benefit for justice. 
  • NCPP(EP) speeches at formal functions that we have attended as representatives of our party.
