12 Grënn fir FAD ze grënnen

12 reasons for creating FAD:  

  1. To create a platform of dialog to promote gender equality of opportunity in all aspects of the Luxembourg society.
  2. To address importance of family values promoting the positive impact a full and healthy family has on the well-being of children.
  3. To support the rights of fathers and mothers to equal parenthood and successful professional career.
  4. To raise social awareness about the need of fathers’ presence during the upbringing of children.
  5. To assure gender-parental equality and respect of children’s rights in Luxembourg Family Courts.
  6. To become educational center providing evidence about importance and relevance of the Résidence Alternée Égalitaire (Equal Shared Parenting – Alternating Residence model) during separation and after divorce.
  7. To convince Luxembourg government to recognize European Council Resolution 2079 and introduce Résidence Alternée Égalitaire (Equal Shared Parenting – Alternating Residence model) not as an option but a starting point and THE DEFAULT LAW for all children custody legal proceedings in Luxembourg.
  8. To represent families in distress and assure that the rights of children for freedom of expression under the Article 24 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union are not violated in Luxembourg.
  9. To advocate the rights of both parents to family life in accordance with the European Convention on Human Rights.
  10. To provide guidance to parents about true meaning of parenthood and protect their rights to equal presence in children’s lives during separation and after divorce.
  11. To communicate the need for creating the 1st proper structure in Luxembourg dedicated to fathers. Services and an asylum where a father with children can find shelter, receive help as well as legal and financial assistance. The same kind of services like the already existing for years in large numbers and available only to mothers with children.
  12. To be the first point of contact between Luxembourg fathers and other fathers’ rights organizations in different jurisdictions.
