Fathers Have Rights too
In New Zealand Families Need Fathers (FNF) group was founded in the 1970’s it is a registered charitable social care organization that provided information, advice, and support to parents particularly fathers whose children’s relationship with them is under threat during or after divorce or separation or have become alienated or estranged from their children.
The law In New Zealand at the time favoured the mother of the children as it clearly stated that a child or children under five automatically goes with the mother, in many cases the father does not even get access to their children. The court and welfare system favoured the mother, despite what she may have or not done.
Danial Mason did attend meetings of Families needs Fathers group in the 1970’s and he heard some horrific stories told to him by fathers who had been denied access or custody some which are told in this novel by Danial Mason.
