Family justice system failing children caught up in conflict
Groundbreaking seminar on how to better manage cases of children unreasonably resistant to parental contact
Some of the failings of the family justice system in this country have been well documented over the last few years. High conflict and intractable cases are not being well managed by the family justice system and more needs to be done to educate those dealing with such cases to better help the children caught up in the conflict and support the parents to achieve better outcomes for their children.
Families Need Fathers (FNF) and Jewish Unity for Multiple Parenting (JUMP) are pleased to launch a landmark, high level multidisciplinary seminar on 16th June 2010, hosted by Andrew Selous MP in the House of Commons. This seminar is groundbreaking in providing a platform for a leading international Professor of Family Law and highly regarded UK Deputy District Judge at the Principal Registry of the Family Division in London to discuss these issues.
Julius Hinks, FNF Director of Communications said “the current Coalition Government has made a commitment to review the family justice system in their programme for Government published on 21 May 2010. We hope that the review will take on board the need for better case management in these most difficult cases, particularly affecting children at risk of being alienated from one of their parents. This is not a gender specific issue as fathers as well as mothers can negatively influence the children from engaging with their other parent following high conflict family breakdown."
