Geldof is correct. The family courts are a disgrace, entrenching prejudice and sexist led decisions into the experience of so many children, wrenched from their fathers, through the applications of vindictive and embittered women. In so many cases, the father is best suited to provide the majority of care and yet family courts incline to the mother, even when her care plan involves farming out the children to childminders. Judges, social workers and 'expert' witnesses, who blight children with biased decisions remain unaccountable behind screens of secrecy. Even so called 'Guardians ad Litem', far from being children's advocates, become instead collaborators with the systemic discrimination against Dads. The default position should be that children spend 50% of time with each parent and nothing should erode that principle, but for situations where there is reliable evidence of abuse. The dirty tricks launched by malicious mothers, pretending threat and hinting at abuse should be exposed and penalised. The time has come for the family court system to stop being a further stick with which to victimise fathers and their 'kidnapped' children.
