Access to Children


At the request of the Hon Pam Webster, MHA, I have completed a draft of a law to give fathers in Anguilla of children born out of wedlock the same right of access to and custody of their children as mothers have, subject to any order of the court.  It is based on the OECS Secretariat Model, and has been adapted for Anguilla.  It is intended for her to introduce as a Private Member’s Bill into the Anguilla House of Assembly at a convenient date.  It can be accessed and downloaded by clicking here:
