Parents Wanting Action against Family Courts and Social Services
Abolish the family court secrecy that gags parents who wish to complain. Abolish "emotional harm" and "risk" as justifications for putting children into care Abolish "forced adoption"if a parent opposes an adoption in court Abolish decisions by family court judges to take babies and young children into care.(let juries decide) Abolish the power of social services to regulate and control contact between parents and children , to censor their conversation or to restrict phone calls. Abolish the restriction preventing a lay advisor from presenting a case for parents refused legal aid Abolish hearsay evidence in family courts and require witnesses to stick to facts without "speculation." Abolish the removal of children from parents who have NOT committed or been charged with any crime.We demand that the words "at risk from emotional harm" that has no legal definition be abolished in Care Proceedings in Family and Youth courts. We demand that Social Services departments are ordered not to use this phrase. Instead concentrate on the children who are suffering from Sexual and Physical Abuse. To assist disadvantaged families until their individual issues and needs are eradicated. To use only expert witnesses that are familiar with the families and have been selected by the families. To not infringe on the right to privacy. Give parents who have addressed all issues stated during care proceedings another chance to raise their children and the chance to prove they have changed not just shut the door on them parenting there children. ABOVE ALL CONSIDER AND RESPECT THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT AND CHILDRENS ACT.
