Dear James Rowan,
I don’t know whether you have come across my assertion that any new legislation strengthening a child’s right of access to its parent is valueless if it includes the caveat; “unless the child could would be in danger”. The decision on this in a secret family court is based on “the balance of probability”, That is why radfems fraudulently increase the “statistics” on DV, helped by ManKind Initiative.,

Hi Jim,

Have you ever asked CafCass or those who provide them with research for the
peer reviewed research which proves that sole residency is in the best
interests of children after parental separation or divorce?

Dear David

Thanks very much for contacting us.

That's an interesting question. We certainly haven't got a section titled
"What is wrong with Family Law and how it's applied?". Most of our lobbying
on that subject is done by direct contact with the relevant agencies, such
as Cafcass, the recent Family Justice Review, etc.

If you look at our website/Fact Sheets/The Case for Shared Parenting, you'll
find, either explicitly or by reading between the lines, some of our answers
to your question. I don't know if we could compile a set of bullet points or
whatever spelling out a comprehensive but concise answer without
oversimplifying the subject.

Does that answer your query?
