Should there be changes in child custody laws?
Do you think child custody laws are fair to both parents? If full custody is already set, do you think (generally) a noncustodial parent has to go through too many loops to receive full or split custody?
I've already sent letters to my MP regarding Canada's 'Status Quo' law. I also think custodial parents who knowingly leave their children in abusive environments, should be held accountable. Safeguards should be automatically embedded for non-custodial parents to prevent loss of visitation rights, hate, child support should be made to a government office, to deter non-payment of child support. Maybe some auto-fines. Just some thoughts.
I agree that parents should be held accountable for what they do with their children when they are not with them. I don't know much about the custody laws in Canada, but it sounds like you are taking the right steps to making your voice heard :-)
I'll probably get hissed and booed at for my POV, but I don't believe the "modern" custody laws are in -children's- best interest, and the children's best interest should be the -only- factor. I believe if a couple splits up, children should be raised by their mother, unless there's a truly legitimate reason why it wouldn't be in the child's best interest. I also believe guys who didn't marry their child's mothers should not have any rights. These days, too much emphasis is on 'rights,' and not on 'responsibilities.'
