Issues faced by litigants in the Family Court:

“It takes many years before a case is decided in the family court. The Youth and vigor of Young Women and Men are lost by the time the Family Court renders it decision – be it Just or Unjust. The family Court cannot restore the Youth and Vigor of the Young citizens/spouses nor compensate for their loss of youth.” Said President of Family Harmony Society, P Suresh

“Statutory mandate of law for disposal of cases by 6 months and day to day hearing is not at all followed by the Family Courts. In the name of appointing of Amicus Curie’s the Family Courts are taken over by advocates, though the Family Courts Act has specifically banned appearance by Advocates.” Said General Secretary of Family Harmony Society, M Mahesh

“Fathers are denied custody as a rule rather than an exception. If at all visitation is ordered to the fathers it is limited to 30 min and 1 hour in a month contrary to the requirement of UN resolution that no Child should be denied access to either of the parents.” Said Executive member of Family Harmony Society, Raghvendra Naik

Demands of the Family Harmony Society®:

“The Family Courts shall ensure that all matrimonial cases be disposed within a period of six months. The Family Courts to officially suspend the vacation/summer holidays to the benches till the time limit of Six months is met.” Demands General Secretary of Family Harmony Society, M Mahesh. He further asks that “when the litigants are suffering so much then how can Court go on vacation leaving behind huge pile up of cases.”

“Induct more judges, construct more courts and extend the court timings to late evenings and over Sundays also. The Family Courts to officially state that no new cases to be taken till the old ones are disposed. All long-pending (one year and above) cases should be transferred to the City Civil Courts to dispose of within a time limit.” is the demand made by President of Family Harmony Society, P Suresh

“Presence & pleadings by Advocates in the family Court and Mediation Centre should be banned. The Family Court shall nominate NGOs’, retired social welfare officers as counselors and mediators. They shall be adequately compensated fixing a rate of at least Rs 10, 000/= per case payable by the spouses equally.” Said Executive member of Family Harmony Society, Ritesh Saxena.

 

“The Family Courts shall ensure that mediators are given exclusive powers to decide on dates, adjournments and mandate them to dispose mediations & counseling quickly, without holidays”  Said Executive member of Family Harmony Society, Uday Reddy.

 

“The Family Courts shall ensure when a Husband is arrested at the instance of the wife on 498A case, automatic divorce to be granted on application for divorce by either of the spouse because when the husband and his family members are arrested and the dispute has reached to police station and courts then there is no logic is mediating the warring couple” Said Executive member of Family Harmony Society, Kiran

 

“The Family Courts shall ensure that equal custody of children are given to both spouses irrespective of allegations of mother be adulterous or father being a drunkard. The practice of child being shown as a TV episode to a father should be discouraged and the Family Courts shall ensure the Shared parenting concept.” Demands Executive member of Family Harmony Society, Umesh G

 

“The practice of passing orders for monetary compensation alone, instead of directly ordering medical, insurance and school-fee payment, purchase of clothes etc., for the children is also considered highly irregular, in view of the fact that there is no guarantee that cash given for such purposes really reach the children to fulfill their basic needs.” Demands Executive member of Family Harmony Society, Vikas

 

“The Family Courts shall ensure that interim orders are passed at the earliest and at the discretion of the officers in respect to maintenance and custody and shall ensure the trial is not withheld over an indefinite period due to non-execution of interim orders.” Said executive member of Family Harmony Society, Vinod

 

“The Family Courts shall order perjury and contempt proceedings in respect of exaggerated or false allegation in respect of employment, earning and cruelty when such allegations are proved to be false.  Spouses making false allegations are to be punished.” Said executive member of Family Harmony Society, Prasad
