With the attempt to bring balance to child custody the PC elite are coming out from behind the laced curtain to push the new Labour Government in Australia to shelve reforms at balance in custody cases. Read below as to why giving fathers access to their kids automatic means violence on mothers & children, simple by the mere presents of fathers in their children’s lives. I especially like the title of one Dale Bagshaw who is for peace, conflict & mediation. I guess we should read conflict as wanting it instead of preventing it.
|FAMILY law experts have called for changes to legislation that emphasises joint custody, arguing it is putting children back into potentially dangerous situations where they risk being abused.
Dale Bagshaw, conference organiser and co-ordinator of the University of South Australia’s Centre for Peace, Conflict and Mediation, said the amendments, which stressed parents sharing duties and responsibilities for children, were having dangerous consequences in some cases
A spokesman for Attorney-General Robert McClelland could not say whether the Labor Government was considering rolling back the amendments, or what Mr McClelland’s position was.
Carol Bruch, a member of the executive council of the International Society of Family Law and an adviser on family law to the US Secretary of State, said research showed frequent contact with both parents was not necessary for a child’s healthy development, and that the quality of the parent-child relationship was more important.
“All of the pressure towards 50:50 or 35:65 physical care arrangements are quite unusual in the world, and are of great concern to the people here,” she said, warning that the courts could be compounding harm to children in conflicted families instead of alleviating it.
