Head of Family Law of PKWA Law Practice Lim Chong Boon comments in the Straits Times article titled “Family Justice Courts is studying ways to get parents to comply with access orders to children”. The article was first published on 18 March 2019.

The article shares with readers how the Family Justice Courts is looking to implement new measures, in order to increase the compliance of access orders by parents after a divorce.

Below is an excerpt from the article which features comments from Lim Chong Boon:

The Family Justice Courts (FJC) is studying ways to get parents to comply with access orders, from getting recalcitrant parents to compensate the other parent for their failure to provide access to their child, to making them do community service.

Access orders are court orders that give the parent who does not live with the child time to spend with their offspring after a divorce.

To put in place the new measures, The Straits Times understands, current laws may have to be amended.

Lawyer Lim Chong Boon said: “The courts recognise that in these cases, using the heavy hand of the law (by threatening jail) may not fix the underlying mistrust or a complicated family situation.”
