Social conditions: – It is high time that this was lifted. It is obvious to more and more people that the current arrangements do not take into account the importance of the father’s role during the children’s upbringing, says Frps Silje Hjemdal, who sits on the children and family committee in the Storting, to The class struggle.

In the report from the Men’s Committee, it appears that the mother receives primary care in 88 per cent of the cases where the parents have not agreed on shared residence.

The men’s committee will strengthen fathers’ rights to contact with the children in the event of a break-up. One of the committee’s proposals is to strengthen shared accommodation as the norm. Today, the courts are required to give primary residence to one of the parents where there is a conflict over the sharing of residence.

– For us, it is a goal to strengthen the father’s rights in the event of a break-up, says Turid Kristensen, a member of the family committee for the Conservative Party.

The newspaper has also been in contact with several of the other parties in the Storting. The red-green parties have not taken a position on the proposals. KrF leader Olaug Bollestad says she is positive about the direction the Men’s Committee points out, but does not want to conclude where the party lands.
