As the father of a child that I am denied access to by the mother, there should be something I can do for my child. The reality is that when I do try and do anything I am treated as a second class citizen here in New Zealand. There are quite a few ways in which I am treated as such. I point them all out below.
When a woman is pregnant a man has no rights at all. Yes, you read that correctly! A man has no rights. This means that if I get a woman pregnant and she leaves town or even the country, she can and there isn’t anything I can do about it. If she leaves (or tries to) after the baby is born, then I could try to get an injunction to stop her from leaving, but I may not be granted one.
