Stop jailing parents for contacting their own children !

1 Comment 28th August 2010

Very recently parents have been handcuffed and jailed for contacting their own children,by sending a birthday card,waving as they passed by,or communicating via u-tube !

Judges should NO LONGER have the power to issue injunctions forbidding contact between parents and children unless the parent in question has been convicted of a criminal offence on a child .

Right now, the power of family court judges over parents is overwhelming,intimidating,and unjust.If a parent has never been convicted of an offence on any child there is no reason why they should be refused all contact for up to 18 years and sometimes for life , and worse still jailed if they so much as wave a hand  or send a card !

The law that allows judges to issue draconian injuctions forbidding parents from contacting their own children should be repealed ! Only if a criminal offence has been committed against a child (any child) can such an injunction be justified.

Why does this matter?

This idea is very important because the new government is commited to freedom and giving anyone ,even a judge the power to ban contact  is a contradiction of that aim .If  parents are innocent of any crime against children no judge should have the power to jail them merely for seeking contact with their own offspring !
