Ruby sadly your thoughts aren''t shared by those in goverment who have the power to change the law.

I can see over the next 20 years very little being done to see that children get to spend proper time with their fathers and vice versa.

Next weekend I get to be a disney dad and have my son 4 days over the bank holiday.Wow a whole 4 days.Then its back to being drip fed.

Meanwhile an email back from my local MP(actually probably his 3rd assistant) whos working on the family law review due out soon confirms it will contain zilch.

Personally I don''t think what I read here is typical of what goes on out there.
I believe the women who make men like me come on sites like this are thankfully in the minority.

Joe, if you are referring to the Family Justice Review update: Contact and other issues for parents following separation, then it was published last week.

I know that my thoughts are not shared with the Government, or indeed any other political party that currently sits in the House of Commons - the MP John Hemming appears to be a lone voice in his support of a legal presumption of shared parenting.

However, does one give up simply because no-one is listening, or do they carry on in the hope that one day they will be heard, and change will occur? I am an eternal optimist ;)

Really? And it never even made the news.How non surprising.

If it had some kind of gay rights link it would have been all over the place.

This whole issue has been in the news, legal blogs and on other fora for some time now, and always hotly debated, perhaps its a case of knowing where to look?

This article in yesterday''s Telegraph is one such example - The law should be helping a child to have two parents
