UK – Why are fathers so important to children.

Dear all 


I would really appreciate your help. 


I am trying to put a convincing document together for the courts as to the importance of a father, as I am now at risk of loosing my daughter, who has been alienated against me and I have not seen for over a month. I think her vindictive mother is going for a no contact order order based on contact as and when my daughter requests (i.e. never) thanks to her mothers.


Please could you send me any documents or benefits with quotes as to where they come from on:

  • benefits of a father
  • consequences of no father

 involvement of a child’s life. Any ideas would be good, but those that can be backed by research and stats would be best. Once I have completed it I will post it and will continue to try and develop it further for others to use in the future. Please also include any particular age related elements as fathers contribute in different ways through a child’s life into adult hood and also beyond as a grandfather.


My appreciated and wishing you a good weekend.

Kind Regards
Greg Downing
