MIGRANT mothers who are returning to their own countries because of the recession and Irish women who are emigrating to find work are leaving the fathers of their children without any say in where the children live or whether they will ever see them again.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick family law solicitor, Verena Tarpey, says she is seeing more men desperate to have access to their children or even to stop them being taken to live somewhere else.“But fathers who are not married to the children’s mother have no rights unless they have officially been declared guardians,” she said.Ms Tarpey runs a busy clinic in Limerick city and has had to tell fathers they “don’t have a leg to stand on”.“I have seen three cases like this in the last month. Because of changing financial circumstances, a lot of women who came here to work during the boom are going back. Equally, Irish women who are being forced to emigrate can take the children with them. The father can do nothing about it”.The Limerick organisation ‘Families’ confirmed that the problem is one which they have also encountered.Joe Wallace, chairman of the group, said that fathers “don’t really have any rights, even those who are legally guardians. It creates a huge problem. If the mother wants to leave the country, either for work or for a holiday, the father has no way of knowing if she will come back.“The only thing he can do is get a court order preventing her from taking the children out of the country and that very much depends on the judge at the time”.Mr Wallace said that legislation concerning unmarried fathers “has been introduced piecemeal over the years but has never really been copper fastened”.This entry was posted in News by Bernie English.

Without, profession of law, the courts would not be in a position to administer and provide justice efficiently. Such an act of defaming the legal professionals among the general public in India through an online Tv series on web portals is clearly an act falling within the ambit of defamation.” Two Delhi based lawyers, Advocates Abhishek Bhardwaj and Hardik Vashisth have sent a legal notice to Netflix India, against streaming of a comedy show titled “Hasmukh”, alleged to be defamatory to the lawyers’ community. As per the notice, Episode number 4 of Season 1 of the said show performed by Indian comedian Vir Das, alleges the lawyers to be “thieves”, “scoundrels” and “goons” and even resorts to the indecency of calling lawyers as “rapists”. Stating that these allegations cannot be justified by any stretch of imagination and are highly “scandalous”, the Advocates have called upon Netflix to immediately remove/ delete/ destroy the impugned content and desist from maligning the lawyers’ community in any manner. They have further sought an “unconditional apology” from both Netflix, as well as the performer and broadcasters of the show, failing which suitable legal action will be initiated against them. “The said statements are highly defamatory and bring disrepute to the profession of law in the eyes of general public. Said statements are towards causing utmost damage to legal profession and impugn the image of lawyers in the eyes of millions of viewers/ subscribers who visit the streaming website,” the notice states. It added, “Legal profession has always been an important limb for administration of justice. Without, profession of law, the courts would not be in a position to administer and provide justice efficiently. Such an act of defaming the legal professionals among the general public in India through an online Tv series on web portals is clearly an act falling within the ambit of defamation.” The lawyers said that the show was an “intentional attack” to malign and “cast aspersions” on their nobel profession. “The above-said vexatious statements are a constant stigma on the good-will and unblemished image of lawyers and a constant source of annoyance for undersigned,” the notice read.
