Heartbreaking injustice of the Covid custody wars - FNF on Daily Mail 'Femail'

On 14th March 2021, the 'Femail' section of Daily Mail quoted us whilst exploring the way Covid19 is used as part of the weaponry of family separation and divorce.

The Mail interviewed mums and dads, including FNF members, to get a sense of how parental responses to the pandemic have affected their behaviour. In one example, mum stopped arrangements claiming it was to protect her elderly mother, however, when the child got Covid, that wish to protect the child's grandmother fell by the wayside, exposing her real intent.

The double-page article also quotes Families Need Fathers - highlighting that the problem is that much more common for children's relationships with their dads and draws attention to unacceptable delays in family court that damage children's relationships, with many not seeing their dads since the first lockdown in March last year. The Mail is no longer accepting new comments on the article, but you can rate the ones that are there.
