Once again a subject you would think would command in depth analysis, but no, it can be summed up very briefly as was the case with our Justice Minister!
What is the point of court orders that are not enforcable?
In fact I will start with Jack Straw's so called 'open court policy'which fell as a damp squib on impact because the judges claimed they would not have the time for the additional administration and claimed it would compromise the security of children involved in these sensitive cases!(Unlike criminal courts they seemed unable to say Child A Child B Family XYZ or put a reference number on a court order for press use!)
Nonsense! "In the child's best interest!" (click title for more)
Unlike criminal court, family courts operate in a shroud of secrecy so do not come under press or public scrutiny as their criminal colleagues,the idea for this was the protection of the child, but in reality it hides a far more sinister reason!
The phrase "In the child's best interest!" is banded about but as with all things Family Law it is 'smoke and mirrors' to protect the judge and the incompetence of the system they operate which results in erroneous judgements based on flawed testimony by CAFCASS (who along with the CSA should be disbanded) or court reporters from social services which are more often then not 'against the best interest of the child!' and often irreversible,(See Jenny's story in side bar) this leaves you wondering why there is a judge involved at all?
As a result these unaccountable judges guided by equally unaccountable court reporters are making failed judgments day in day out in the UK and around the world.It was never my intention to become a campaigner even though I was at the wrong end of such a judgment (or lack of judgement in enforcing it on an self interested mother, see failing judges in side bar left)
So I for one will not rest till this injustice is rectified and don't forget fathers
like me are the ones who stayed to do their best for their kids, did all the judge
asked to the point of ruin, and what was believed to be in the true best interest
of the children when the only ones to benefit are the so call 'fee earners'the
legal professionals whilst the judge and social workers who's incompetence are at the heart of our broken societies!
