I was thinking of joining them.... I know it sounds odd but I will explain..... I talked to my local Rep and he gave me some extremely interesting facts and information on our Child law and the legal system which is currently failing children all over the country... He told me that there are a number of women members in the group... however, I put thought to the whole mater and realised a couple of things.. a) It really should be Real Parents for kids as I share the belief that BOTH parents should be in the child’s life regardless of what they think of each other. The Law is more that rubbish in this country and fails them across the board! c) Each and every Judges, Solicitors, Barristers, Social workers & reporter I have come across so far have not been prepared to look at what is clearly a dreadful situation, with Fathers and Mothers all over the land being removed or manipulated out of their children's lives... that while we make dealing with the welfare/future of individual children in the country a MONEY MAKING opportunity, justice and 'the right thing for the child' will never be the diving force behind any court hearing!! d) If I had loads of money I could effectively go back and forth to court and actually get nowhere!! e) It is a fact that no matter the reason, in this country if a a Parent leaves the family home they will NEVER be treated with the respect they should be! f) It is a fact that if the reason a residecy battle is being fought is due to a breakdown in communication or one parent is manipulating the truth to remain in control, the court do not want to know and actually only allocate a 2hr slot for the hearing!! I'll just climb down off my box now, but if anybody would care to comment/correct me on any these points I would be please to hear their opinion... I am thinking of starting a forum called Real Parents for Justice.... and I won't be charging £25p/a for the pleasure!!
