    I am inclined to agree with what Lee Jay says in his article. There will be so many excuses made for not returning children or allowing alienated parents access to their children. In my case I believe DV alegations as well as “the children dont want to see him” excuse resulting from years of parental alienation perpetrated by not only my children’s mother but by their Japanese grandparents also.
    A small step in the right direction but no more… The problem is that in the meantime our children continue to get older and live without one of their parents.
