Stop MARAC from influencing Judges decisions in Family Court

This petition had 9 supporters

MARAC is essentially a "self reporting" agency of which various multi disciplines come together make a decision. This is destructible for parents, in particularly the father, why? 

Why? The father (or the alleged perpetrator) never gets to put his side forward, so in affect the mother can say anything she wants and can get away with it. Basically, just make things up and "self-report", the father is then treated as "high risk" even if all charges are dropped, if the father is seriously an outstanding member of society he gets treated like a criminal. The father never gets invited to put his side forward. 

The judge then looks at the MARAC and takes this into account when making a decision between the father and his children. The evidence is NOT testable, the judge errs on the side of caution and takes the MARAC into account leaving some fathers given:

- Unsupervised contact (or in some cases no contact with children)
- Deemed as high risk (or the MARAC against the father is perceived negatively)
- and the effects of this go on....

What I am asking is for the courts and judges to not take into account MARACs or such evidence which is; untestable, self-reporting and one sided.
