MRA is attempting to "level the playing field" so all Australians can be treated equally, with respect, consideration and compassion, whilst acknowledging their own responsibilities.
MRA has created a National network of dedicated professionals - solicitors, barristers, counsellors, psychologists, accountants, financial advisers and other consultants, who have a special understanding of the issues from a man's/father's point of view.
Using MRA's services provides access to these specialists with free appointments and reduced ongoing fees.
Assistance is directly available from MRA with Child Support Agency problems, emergency housing, employment, friendship and suicide prevention.
Meetings with guest speakers, an online email list and printed information keeps MRA people up to date with recent developments.
MRA strategies provide a better chance for a more equitable outcome, especially for your children, who should be able to spend time with both parents. Children need both a mum and a dad. Do not let yourself be shut out of your children's lives. They depend on you!
