Ontario’s family law legislation has different provisions that seek to meet the demands of abused, abandoned, or oppressed citizens. A good example is the one focusing on child support. When relationships or marriages fail, the law dictates that both parents should be involved in every child’s life. Unfortunately, one of them will have to become the access parent. Women also get custody in most cases.
However, some of the current requirements in Ontario have failed to consider the social dynamics recorded in different parts of the world. For example, women are usually empowered to take care of their children. This leaves men behind and makes it impossible for them to transform their children’s experiences. Paternal leave is not a common provision in Ontario. This requirement means that the number of employed women still remains low since they are required to take care of children.
Another issue is that of unfair discrimination against men. Whenever the issue of child custody arises, the tender year’s doctrine always wins. The idea behind it is that women are the ones who usually get child custody. Most men become accessible parents, and the law demands that they pay for support. These issues reveal that Ontario’s family law has lagged behind by failing to change depending on emerging social dynamics. The decision to consider these critical gaps will make it possible for more males to be involved in child upbringing.
They will also provide adequate emotional, social, material, and psychological support. Such practices will support more children in this country and make it easier for them to become responsible adults. They will also achieve most of their aims in life.
