Secrecy Does Not Protect Children
There is an assumption that family court secrecy is necessary to protect children - but rarely will you ever hear how, exactly, children are protected by secrecy.
In my view, secrecy does not protect children. It makes them more vulnerable.
Furthermore, when, for example, men are accused of sex crimes (falsely or otherwise) their identities can be publicised everywhere regardless of how this might impact on children.
Thus, family court secrecy is really about protecting the state, not the children.
