Unfatherly Conduct TV3 News

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — JohnPotter @ 3:36 pm Wed 12th April 2006

The promo for the TV3 News story “unfatherly conduct”, screened last night reads:

The fight for fathers to have equal parenting rights has moved too close to home for some family lawyers. A group of disgruntled fathers have taken to picketing outside the lawyer’s homes.

But the Law Society says their actions amount to intimidation, and they are targeting the wrong people.

The reporter confronted Jim Bailey, head of the Hands-on Equal Parent Trust, with the accusation that they are scaring the children of some lawyers, but he answered:

They are scaring ours!

This is aimed more at personal — getting the lawyers to really think about what they are doing. They can play a big part in the management of keeping family together.
