TERMS & CONDITIONS OF ASSOCIATION

Fathers-4-Justice South Africa is a supporter-based non-profit-organization whose mission is to educate the South African public about the injustices inflicted on children and parents (mostly fathers) by the current family law system and about better ways of managing the divorce-access-custody system through shared and equal parenting. We advocate for shared parenting with equal parental rights and responsibilities. We believe children have the right to and the need for BOTH of their parents. We envision a social system where the custody battles are the exception, not the rule. We offer help and hope to children, fathers, and their families. If you share this vision, join us. Together, we will make it happen.
