[edit] Criticism of Family Law

Members of the fathers' rights movement criticize the win or lose nature of family law currently used in most Western countries to determine divorce and child custody issues, and define "winning custody" not as the right to parent one's children, but as the power to prevent someone else from parenting his children with the help of the government.[1]

Criticism of family law is also directed at the difficulties experienced by cross-national parties struggling with cross-border issues. These include legal and procedural concerns regarding child abduction, child custody and visitation. These concerns are addressed, to some degree, in international human rights treaties and the Hague Convention agreements.
