After almost three years of campaigns over parental alienation and the ‘shame’ of Cafcass, the Government has finally agreed to launch an inquiry into Britain’s family courts.
The consumerwatchfoundation.com, D.A.D.s (dads against double standards), the National Association of Alienated Parents and dozens of other groups across the UK – and in many other parts of the world – welcomed the pledge.
Andrew John Teague, who has been battling from his home in Swansea for parents who have been separated from their children, said the inquiry was “long overdue” and accused the family courts of operating in secrecy.
The Ministry of Justice has said it will convene a panel who will undertake a three-month consultation reviewing family courts.
The inquiry is said to be wide-ranging, but it is believed that it will mainly look for areas of improvement as far as parental access rights are concerned.
Editor at the consumerwatchfoundation.com, Leigh G Banks, said: “Now we need to up the game, there is no doubt D.A.D.s and other groups, through day-in-day-out campaigning, have kept Parental Alienation on CWF’s front page.
Now, Peter Davies, on behalf of the National Association of Alienated Parents is sending this letter to MPs, government officials and those who have power over our children, families and lives.
