I could give you a specific example – women that apply for bad credit personal loans to hire lawyers and have their specific attitude and way of thinking have it all wrong and that’s why todays judicial system is in the mess that it is in and also why more states are having more mothers on A.F.D.C.(welfare) how does he expect fathers to be a part of their children life when child support is based on finacial obligations only and not on emotional values??
Also how does Ms Crittenden explain how fathers are not removed from the family when restraining orders are easily given?? Also how is it that a mother with custody can decide to move, in some cases, out of state and the move is considered by the courts to be in the best interest of the child(ren)?? Could go on and on about people like he but I have better things that I would rather discuss.
I completely agree with what you said. The court system punishes dads who want to be a part of their child(ren) life. It’s like we are in one big “melting pot” with the deadbeat dads. But, there are deadbeat moms out there who could care less if their child(ren) is clothed, or has shelter, or even has a dry bottom! I spend countless hours working just so I can travel 1500 miles away to visit with my daughter and the court system makes it even more difficult. Money that was spent going to court could have gone for her daycare, education, toys or clothes..
ANYTHING besides having to fight a corrupt court system. It’s almost like the mom does not need an expensive lawyer.. they have the folks in black robes on their side. It wasn’t until the 2nd year I even started making head way with the court system. And, even then the judge looked at me and said “Geez, you DO want to be a part of your child’s life” DUH! Said that: He couldn’t get people 50 miles away in the courtroom but a guy 1500 miles away had no problem showing up.
My point is: there ARE dads out there that want to be a part of their child(ren) life and dads are just as important as moms are in the world. I believe in equal (shared) parenting. A child should have 2 parents, 2 sets of grandparents, 2 sides of the family (not solely one side). I have the best job in the world and that is being a dad. I wouldn’t trade that for anything else.
