Wayne Butler Secretary of the Shared Parenting Council of Australia admits in 2005 that they do not even think MOST men want Shared Parenting. What are they fighting for then?
"Notwithstanding, much research needs to be done in how many fathers are able to in fact have 50/50 time sharing. I am finding it hard to get a clear view on how many might want such contact. There appears to be much more interest in a range of percentages between 0 and 50 rather than 50/50. For those outcomes to be successful surely there needs to be a more appropriately worded legislative proposal than a simple rebutable presumption of 50/50 equal time (or joint custody as its known) to avoid the existing status quo. The SPCA has made a range of recommendations on this very matter."
