I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

For some families, Christmas will be a devastating time, due toarchaic UK laws, failing judges and because inadequate court systemsfail to uphold the basic human right of children being able to spendadequate time with both their natural parents. Children’s rights, as well as fathers rights are a very importantissue and organisations such as The Real Fathers For Justice areleading the way to try and make a difference for the sake of ourchildren. Despite numerous studies and surveys illustrating the benefits of achild having access to both parents, many men in the UK still have tobattle through courts just to see their sons or daughters. This poses a serious welfare issue for the children concerned. Some men have fought for nine years or more, yet still their courtorders are not upheld, allowing the mother to ruin the lives of theseinnocent children. This is a clear indication that something is wrongwith the UK family court systems. Can you imagine how degrading it must be to have to seek a court’s permission just to see your own children? There is an indication that things may be changing, an example is the recent speech by Jack Straw which is available at: http://www.justice.gov.uk/news/newsrelease161208b.htm but even so, there is a long way to go before fathers are treated as equal parents. When we finally put our children’s rights first, things shouldchange for the better, but until then, thousands of passionate fatherswill have to battle for our children to grow up in a fairer and morehumane society.
