    Original of revocation legally filled in - refused by child welfare (WA) - was too late and would not give me information for hand delivery by myself. Acceptable attestation was difficult to obtain for a naive 17 year old country girl. Through the grief and trauma all I saw was a big threat of it being an offence to revoke consent punishable by imprisonment / fine at the footer of document. The words are very skillfully crafted to ensure compliance.
