Will Divorced British Fathers Get the Right to See Their Children?

According to the Daily Mail (via Fathers and Families) British politicians have announced legal changes in order to guarantee divorced fathers and their children the right to remain in relationship independent of the preference of the mother.

Ministers are drawing up new rules to put courts under a legal duty to ensure divorced parents are guaranteed access to their children.

Parents who refuse to accept the orders will be in contempt of court and risk serious penalties or even jail.

The move will delight fathers’ rights campaigners who believe dads are penalised under the present system which usually grants mothers custody.

Note the hypocrisy of speaking of “parents” as if this was a sex-neutral disaster to be remedied! To get an understanding of the prevalence of the still operating inhumanity against children and fathers, another quotation from the article:

Around 3.8 million children – one in three – live without their father.

Nothing else needs to be told. It is obviously more than a mere belief of Fathers4Justice and other fathers’ rights groups, it’s hard statistical facts.

Nadine O’Connor, campaign director for Fathers4Justice, said a Government move would be a ‘massive step forward’.

‘It is saying that dads have as many rights as mums,’ she said. ‘I will believe it when I see it, but the reform has to apply across the family justice system.’
