BANGALORE: In view of the upcoming Fathers’ Day, the National Family Harmony Society, a city-based NGO submitted a memorandum to Chief Justice of the High Court PD Dinakaran on Saturday, seeking justice for fathers and children separated due to marital discords.

The memorandum demanded reforms in mediation and counselling. The NHFS demanded that advocates should be barred from the mediation process in family court as mandated by the Family Courts Act.

The NGO demanded that no in-camera and chamber proceedings should be held unless absolutely necessary and the purpose should be duly recorded in the court register. The memorandum asked the courts to order perjury and contempt proceedings in case of exaggerated statements and false allegations or affidavits related to cruelty.

Spouses making false allegations should be punished under the appropriate sections of the IPC.
