Michael Fox believes that his children are at risk of harm living with their mother, though there are no details about what he believes the threat to be. It's also not clear yet why the courts have prevented him having access to his children. He was involved in a bikie shootout some years ago and a house he owns burnt down around the time he was denied access. He himself has hinted that the issue is one of parental alienation syndrome, meaning that his children have been turned against him by their mother.
