Separation and divorce can be distressing to adults, but the impact on the children is often not fully recognised.
Child maintenance provides a secure financial platform to many families but for warring parents, it can often provide another platform to vent frustrations against each other, and the needs and welfare of the children become less focused.
We recognise the need for safeguards where necessary, but the importance of a child's relationship with both parents must not be undermined.
We support the campaign 'The Parent's Promise' and urge parents to follow too so that children will benefit from a society that safeguards their long term welfare during parental separation or divorce.
