Families Need Fathers (FNF) is greatly encouraged by the Government’s commitment to Shared Parenting and a review of family law. This has the potential to make a huge difference to separated families across Britain.
We are pleased with this bottom-line commitment to “encourage Shared Parenting from the earliest stages of pregnancy – including the promotion of a system of flexible parental leave;” however this is just the beginning. FNF looks forward to being involved in the debate to determine how best to encourage shared parenting and legal reform. The next essential step is a legal presumption of Shared Parenting.
“Time is ticking. Children are losing out on a loving relationship with their parents every hour and will continue to do so until these proposals have an actual effect.” Becky Jarvis, Policy Officer for FNF.
