Here at UKAP, our job is to provide information about the family courts, and how to avoid all the pitfalls – there are many. We highlight the problems with the system, and give suggestions as to how things can be improved.
There are several possible solutions, which you can read about on this site. The primary focus, though, must be on judges simply doing their job – enforcing their own orders. 98.8% of the time, judges do not do this – so Court Orders are simply ignored. Courts have become a laughing stock. It’s time to speak truth to power…
I am an alienated parent. I have spent the last four years fighting this, during which time I have not seen my son or had any communication from him, or about him. None of this, of course, is his fault. I have spent lots of money on lazy, ineffective lawyers.
I am writing this blog to help others stuck in the same position as me. Parental Alienation is a crime in other countries, and it should be in the UK too, and, indeed, everywhere.
During the last four years, I have become intimately acquainted with the legal cases that have been decided on this issue. But where we look for logic. robustness and consistency, all we find is incoherence, weakness, delay and eccentricity, from a judiciary that is out-of-touch and almost completely ineffective. Our job as alienated parents is simply to get judges to do their job. We are done with the pain now. It’s time for change.
When I am not writing about this subject, I like to play chess and backgammon. I am also interested in philosophy and politics.
(A quick note on terminology – throughout this site, references to ‘AP’ are to ‘Alienating Parent’ and references to ‘TP’ mean the ‘Target Parent’)
