My parents are divorced and still in a custody battle over my sister and me so we need signatures from both of them for me to get a passport. We got a passport earlier this year but because my dad isn’t in Australia they couldn’t give it to him so they gave it to my mum. Now she’s refusing to give me my passport. I’ve got recordings of her saying she won’t give it to me. Is there anything I can do to get my passport so I can come back home? I do have an Afghan passport but my Aussie passport and afghan passport are under different names. What can I do? Please help. I want to go home.
The 'easiest' solution would be if you can get your mother to agree getting the passport to you. Ask her, or have someone else ask for you. If she insist ask for the reasons why she doesn't want you to have the passport and travel to Australia. There might be problems on her side you do not know about.
The next thing, maybe while getting an answer from your mother, is contacting the Australian embassy or consulate.
If both those routes fail, the court where they fight the custody battle. You may be able to ask them for help.
