Please... Let Me See My Son - A father's fight with parental alienation & the Family Law processby Thomas Moore
A story of our time, a story of divorce, separation and the way fathers are faced with almost insurmountable barriers to having ongoing relationships with their children when the parents separate. In
One father's fight against parental alienation, failings of the UK Family Law process, and the apathy of the system we entrust with a duty of care to our children.
A story of our time, a story of divorce, separation and the way fathers are faced with almost insurmountable barriers to having ongoing relationships with their children when the parents separate. In many ways this is every father's story. But it is also a story that will resonate with some mothers who, like Thomas in this book, also face being eradicated from their children's lives.

This book is about the family law system from the perspective of a man who experienced it for all its shortcomings. In many ways it is the experience of thousands of men in the U.K., and elsewhere in the western world. However, whereas most parents suffer through the court process for one, two or three years, Thomas Moore suffered the system for around twelve years. There are beautiful moments in this book which, I unashamedly admit, reduced me to tears at times. Written in the first person, Moore explains the lengths he went to in order to get to see his son, discusses the many shortcomings of the family law system and in doing so highlights the desperate need for change to the way the U.K. administers justice. As Moore's wife says: "What is it about this system that demeans the role of a father and so reveres that of the mother?" This book is well-written, engaging and, once started, impossible to put down. Adam Wordsworth Author of 'The End of Discrimination: What if U.K. family law was fairer?'
