In the UK the family courts are run in secret, this results in the courts acting in a very unjust way that is very often gender biased against Fathers. The family courts work on the principle of 'what is in the in the best interest of the child' but there are many statistics that prove that to not only be untrue but actually the opposite is true, for example many false allegations (FA's) are made against a parent (mainly fathers due to ore conceived and outdated concepts of modern day parenting customs) these FA's are held against the other parent without ANY evidence and are assumed to be true resulting in one parent( usually the Father) being being denied access to his/her child(ren). His injustice will ONLY end when the 'family' courts are opened up to public scrutiny. This injustice ( caused by secrecy) has resulted in an epidemic of suicides by heartbroken parents and a whole host of societal problems resulting from children being brought up in a single parent 'family' the stats of the many ( emotional and psychological ) problems that are inflicted on children damaged by this inhumane and corrupt family 'justice' system overwhemingly make this the biggest social issue of our time.
