Children to Have Right to Contact With Both Parents

Children

The Department for Education has announced new rules that set out the need for children to have contact with both mothers and fathers.

As part of an over-haul of the family justice system children will have a legal right to maintain a relationship with both parents.

The move has been welcomed as a positive step forward for children’s rights by ensuring they have an ongoing relationship with both parents.

Ministers have however ruled out a legal guarantee to equal access.  A move that has disappointed some father’s rights groups.
