Founders Story

Welcome to Child Rights.

For tens of thousands of parents (usually Fathers)  in the UK, the sad truth is that the resident parent (usually the mother) is denying proper access to children, due to their own selfish reasons. The common term for this denial of contact is Parental Alienation and is classed as child abuse in many countries such as Australia, Canada, USA, Brazil and France.

In the UK however, CAFCASS still does not recognise parental alienation which delays court proceedings and is a clear form of child abuse.

Please support this site by any means and together we will save the thousands of innocent children from their parents selfish actions.

Thank you.

    Hi, As a Dad who went through this for 14 years, I think
    this is a very worthwhile cause and want to congratulate you on
    trying to right the wrongs done to so many fathers. I was granted a
    defined access order in Court, but my ex never adhered to it and I
    would go weeks not seeing my daughter, on a couple of occasions it
    was 3 months or more My Daughter is now 20 and still don’t get to
    see as much of her as I would like, but at least it’s her choice
    now. She is in her 2nd year at University, has friends, a boyfriend
    etc and Dad isn’t a priority anymore. I am fortunate to be with a
    new partner and have twin daughters with her. I am the main carer
    for our daughters as a result of an accident at work that left me
    with medical retirement. Once again, I want to congratulate you on
    bringing this into the public eye. Far too many Dads miss out on
    the wonder that is their Children’s development, and it is so wrong
    I have ‘Liked’ your facebook page and shared it on my profile.
    Yours sincereley Mark

    I’ve just lost a long and lengthy custody battle with my ex-wife. From the age of 2, my son as been living with me due to the abuse both he and I have been put through by her. I’ve been called a liar by social services, the police and cafcass – who have all taken it upon themselves to call me this and say I’ve made up malicious allegations in order to keep my sons custody, which destroyed the court case. In the case, I had a psychological evaluation on my ex-wife in 2009 which clearly states she is not fit to look after our son and that it was in his best interests to reside with me. It also recommends she seek professional help which she hasn’t done, even to this day. Instead last friday the magistrates through my evidence out of court – calling it nitpicking and awarded custody to my ex-wife by saying shes turned her life around – but quite clearly is still showing signs of mental problems, attacking people randomly due to her condition and most importantly – still abusing our son. My son quite simply cannot bare to spend time with her because of what shes done in the past and to this day. He states that he wishes she was dead and that he doesn’t want to see or speak to her at all. Yet the courts have now forced a situation where a 5 year old boy now has to live with his abuser, completely against his wishes and fears. Please help, I do not have grounds to appeal to the decision and in 4 weeks he will be taken from me and placed into my ex-wife’s care. Any information, advice or support will dearly be appreciated. Thank you for your time in reading this.

    Going thru 6 years of my ex not allowing me into my daughters life, she has control an the courts believe every lie she says about me !!! Its a sad world today we live in that mothers refuse the roghts of chidlren to fathers as the law is for mothers everytime even thou majority of fathers make better parents !!

  4. I am the Chair of the organisation, MATCH.mothers.org. We provide support and Advice to Mothers apart from their children.
    Yes it may seem a shock but some mothers loose custody and get no right from their ex husband for seeing their children even though the court papers have ordered the contact. Fathers have fought loudly for the error of their ex wifes to be heard but we are an organisation nationally and internationally hearing from mothers in distress.
    Please feel free to see our website, and contact me for we are fighting for the same cause, that children have equal rights to access with both parents. We especially hate parental alienation. Thank you for your time.

      As a father who is preevnted from seeing his daughter, (although I already have parental rights) since I split up with my ex due to relationship problems as a result of her constant mood swings and constantly looking for arguments in May, 2010, I find it absolutely disgusting and intolerable that I have to jump through hoops, to have access to the child and face the prospect of tremendous costs to take her to court, which one is preevnted from doing, due to having a mortgage and stretched to the hilt, as I already pay regular maintenance through the CSA. When I mentioned this at the time to the CSA and advised I was preevnted from access to the child they contacted her, which had the adverse affect of creating friction and stirring things up. She contacted me at work and left a message with a work colleague to the affect that, If I wished to see my child I would need to sue her throughout every court in the land. How diabolical! My ex is a W.P.C., who quite frankly is not fit to wear the uniform. When will the Government of either party see commonsense and introduce a system that is fair to all especially the child, who needs their blood father. The current system is a total mess and a shambles creating bad feeling and spitefulness. My ex as a W.P.C. earns considerably more than me and the money I pay for maintenance, in my opinion, does not go to my daughter, but to the grandmother to supplememt her pension, as there is no obligation under the current legal system to prove where the money is spent. Although I believe in supporting my child as the father there is a fairer way to implement this system, which should be means tested and not used by the parent with care as a revenge mechanism, which quite clearly is the case at the moment. The statement from her own lips indicated and supported this, which was I will CSA you to the hilt.

    I am the proud father of triplets who are 4 years old today. I have been separated from my estranged wife for nearly two years now and I am still battling in court for my rights to see my children. When we separated she decided i was not going to be in their life anymore! No reason apart from the fact that we have split up and she is very evil and selfish. I have been awarded contact in a contact center every second Saturday for 2 hours! what a joke! I’ve done nothing wrong! She cancels most of my contact visits or just doesn’t turn up. I have taken her back to court for not obtempering to the court order and she was granted further contacts at the contact center because they haven’t seen me enough times. She doesn’t want me to ever be alone with my kids. My estranged wife was very abusive toward me and controlling in front of our children and so was her mother. I did most of the caring of our children as she needed lots of sleep. I was the one getting up in the middle of the night when they cried. She refused to get up! We are now going back to court again because she is not complying with the new court order. This is dragging on too long! Fathers have no rights! Changes in the law need to be made now. Parental Alienation is child abuse so why does the UK allow it????

      Stephen I feel for you and can totally relate to what you are saying. I am 9 months into a terrible legal mess with my ex-partner over seeing my 4 year old son. We parted in 2010 and for 2 years I was held over an emotional barrel. I was constantly threatened that if I didn’t do what I was told I would have my heart ripped out. In January I started proceedings with the intention of protecting my son who I infrequently saw for contact. Since this time I have had my contact banned and my ex has managed to relocate 200 miles, illegally without anyone batting an eye lid. All my ex-partner cares about is continuing a campaign of hatred against me. She has made up all sorts of ludicrous accusations which no one seems bothered about proving.

      The system we have is appalling and when you look at other countries like Sweden you start to realise how appalling it is. It is beyond belief that a biological Father currently has no rights to see his own children. Court action only ever results in alienated and resentment. There has to be a better way because the generation of lost children currently involved in “Gang Culture” are the product of a Fatherless generation encouraged by the government.

      How long can a nation sit back and watch innocent people continue to be persecuted without proof and reward mother’s who purposely emotionally abuse their children for their own amusement?

    In January 2012 I started court proceedings against my ex partner in the hope I could secure a defined contact order for my son. I believed it was his right to have stable and secure time with his Dad. Since this time my ex-partner has manipulated and lied to Cafcass and the Court and completely trampled over the legal process.

    The day she received the court papers she immediately banned me from seeing my son and despite two hearings I have still not seen him. On top of that, without notifying me she has moved 200 miles away and told my solicitor it was to prevent me seeing him.

    The laws in the country “seriously” needs addressing and it is appalling that a parent can subject their child to this type of emotional abuse and simply get away with it based on their Gender! We have to keep campaigning for equal parenting rights because our children deserve it.
