(February 6, 1984) He did the story on the father who was repeatedly denied visitation and no one would do anything about it. All of us who have been denied visitation felt for that man as he stood outside his ex's apartment and tried to keep from crying.

Parental Separation and the Child Custody Decision: Toward a Reconception Contemporary debates regarding the appropriate way to resolve custody and access disputes reflect deeply rooted conceptions of both the family and the proper relationship between the family and the state. The prevailing "best interests of the child" test and judicial presumptions favouring sole custody embody a traditional definition of the family and a communitarian image of familial relationships. Conversely, current joint custody legislation adopts a liberal-contractual paradigm, in which the family is viewed as a joint partnership and children are conceived as assets to be equally divided upon termination of the spousal relationship. The authors reject both notions of the family and the standards for custody determination associated with each. Instead, they advance a feminist vision of the family and a feminist approach to the resolution of access and custody disputes.
