Just under a quarter will be restricted to seeing their children in the daytime and the remaining quarter will be given little or no opportunity to be the daddy.

Children of a broken home are three times more likely than others to be permanently sick and unable to work by their mid-50s, the report said.

The findings come in the wake of the launch of a campaign backed by senior judges and legal figures to tear up the divorce laws and replace them with a new system in which no husband or wife would be held to be at fault when their marriage ends.

The role which is reserved for the secondary parent is unfair, unequal and for many, a deeply unfulfilling way to experience parenthood.

Is our opinion of fatherhood really so low, that we think this sorry state of separated parenting is acceptable?

The basis for this claim is that 88 per cent of dads who applied to court for contact with their kids were awarded some kind of access.

For example, 10 per cent were restricted to “indirect contact” with their children via phone, post or Skype; a further five per cent were only allowed to see their children in the company of a supervisor and 23 per cent were permitted to spend a few daytime hours with their children.

Other childhood causes of later difficulties with work, it added, could include physical or mental illness, physical or sexual abuse, or 'neglected appearance – if the child appeared scruffy or underfed.'The report said: 'Specific events and circumstances during childhood impact working life.'Adversity in childhood is associated with reduced labour force participation at 55, even when considering other factors such as gender, mental health, education and socioeconomic position during adulthood.'Those who faced adversities or consistent socioeconomic disadvantage were found to be three times more likely to be permanently sick at 55 than those who did not experience adversities.'It is suggested that physical or sexual abuse and neglect were more likely directly to impact the capability of an individual to work, while other adversities, such as divorce or parental absence, could potentially be explained by the consequence these experiences are likely to have on adulthood in general.'The report, titled Working for everyone: addressing barriers and inequalities in the extended working lives agenda, was produced by a team led by Professor Sarah Vickerstaff of Kent University.
