  • If we want to create a safer society for all we need to make sure that men and women, dads and mums have access to proper support when they become victims of abuse. There needs to be no room for systemic bias. Similarly, it is shocking, for example, that Cafcass (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) have plenty of Domestic Violence Perpetrator Programmes they can send dads to, but not a single one for mothers. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/there-are-no-male-safe-houses-for-male-victims-of-domestic-abuse-in-london-and-a-charity-is-asking-a3912091.html Please support us by following us, sharing, liking our posts, registering for free, making a donation or becoming a member of FNF.

  • It is often assumed that there is a stigma associated with men admitting physical or psychological abuse. However, there are two other important factors. One is that they will not be believed when they do complain. Another is that fathers fear reprisal action of preventing access to their children. These issues combine to be a powerful deterrent to seeking help from authorities. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6053177/Police-ignore-psychological-abuse-males-unconscious-bias-say-campaigners.html Please support us by following us, sharing and liking this post, registering with us for free, becoming a member or making a donation.

  • It is good that Mel B and Stephen Belafonte will be jointly parenting their six year old daughter. It's not fair on his step-daughter that they could not agree arrangements for her too - Mr Belafonte had been parenting her for most of her life and this will apparently be the second father figure she's lost in her life. A shared parenting agreement should have been reached for both children without these proceedings and with less damage to them. It seems doubtful that this was what they really, really wanted. https://www.standard.co.uk/showbiz/celebrity-news/stephen-belafonte-celebrates-as-mel-b-is-ordered-to-pay-his-350000-legal-fees-in-divorce-battle-i-a3905596.html
  • We believe in transparency in family courts, but having a public slanging match over child maintenance is excessive. It is good that they appear, to some extent, to be sharing parenting after separation, but their six children won't wish to read or have their friends read how their mum and dad bicker over who pays for what. They are, reportedly, each worth handsomely in excess of $150m and with earning potential for much more. https://www.standard.co.uk/showbiz/celebrity-news/angelina-jolie-pushes-for-divorce-from-brad-pitt-as-she-accuses-him-of-paying-no-meaningful-child-a3906296.html
