We were pleased to see Andrew Brigden, UK MP for North West Leicestershire championing the anti-parent alienation cause at Westminster recently.
Of course, we are committed to and fully support all actions intended to bring this social pandemic to an end. So we’re very happy to relay Andrew’s comments:
“Our family courts system has many critics, fathers say they can’t see their children, mothers complain about harassment and families can spend years in and out of court.
“However, there is a straightforward solution to most of these problems. A specific stand-alone fault in the family law system has been identified and it can easily be put right.”
Mr Brigden is now calling on other MPs to support his demand that Britain’s senior judges look into his claims (see here for the Hansard notes of the debate)
Speaking about a child’s right to have a meaningful relationship with both parents following separation, he said:
“the major part of the problem is the failure of the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service and the courts to intervene and take a genuine, early stand against obstructive parents who engage in parental alienation and prevent court ordered access.
This damages both the relationship between, and the mental health of, the child and the non-resident parent.”
The meeting was accompanied by a white paper, which included many of the “upstream”recommendations we have been debating in the Peace not PAS support group and other platforms for some time.
You can follow the debate about this with specific reference to the report in our Facebook community group.
