A caring and sharing problem

Link
"WITH the system under unprecedented scrutiny, there are fears from those who pushed for a better deal for fathers that the current reviews will go against them. Lindsay Jackel, from the Shared Parenting Council of Australia, was among those who lobbied the Howard government. He accepts that violence is an issue in some cases. But he believes that allegations of violence can sometimes be used as a tactic by mothers to diminish the time fathers have with their children. ''We sometimes in our group will ask not who has had an intervention order, but who hasn't?'' he says.

But the National Council for Children Post-Separation is pushing for immediate change, and says children are at risk whenever they are placed with a parent - either a mother or father - who has a history of violence or abuse."

I suspect this is only being reported on because the victim of the System is a woman.

The Anti FAMILY Brigade seems to be making ground?

Link
Ever wonder about the power of the feminist movement? I suspect it took many years to have the current law passed and here, three years after its enactment, they have gathered significant support to have it reversed. So much for "the best interests of the children".

An acrimonious six-year international custody battle

Link
"Fizza Rizvi (Wife) and Ghulam Nurie (Husband): This (case) involves an acrimonious six-year international custody battle, in which lawyers on two continents seemingly have left no stone unturned, while the parties themselves have left no rock unhurled. The accusations and counter-accusations include kidnapping, fraud, and domestic violence, all set against a backdrop of INTERPOL1 warrants, armed gunmen, and flights from justice. In both California and Pakistan, mud has been slung, court orders flouted, and reputations challenged."
