Petition to Stop Domestic Abuse Through the Family Courts

Last year, by order of the High Court advised by the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass), my friend’s two high school children were taken by force in the middle of the night from the home of their mother. They were dragged out of her house screaming, put into a police van and taken to live at their father’s house. They were told their reasons for not wanting to see their father weren’t good enough and that they must have a relationship with him.

If this sounds shocking – the truth is that this is happening in the family courts all the time. Just a glance through the comments of this petition will give you an idea.

This week is #RefugeeWeek, we at Welsh Women's Aid stand with refugees and hope one day this shocking statistic will come to an end. #StandWithRefugees…
