Father’s Day tough on dads without visitation rights

As we all look forward to this Father’s Day, the best gift any woman could give to a father is the acknowledgment of the irreplaceable value men and fathers bring to a relationship, to children and what they afford the greater society. What an abject tragedy, what a horrific loss it is for any child to endure a life apart from their father.

The last 30-plus years have unfortunately not been kind to fathers and more importantly their children. It is today an unfortunate fact that of the approximate 70 million fathers in the U.S., 35 million are divorced. Of those 35 million fathers, as a result of a corrupt anti-family court system, approximately 84.4 percent have been relegated to the status of non-custodial parent.

Family courts are wrong;   I have not seen my child in over two years.The Harm Caused By Family Court System - 2016

It is not fathers “abandoning” their children, it’s feminism, mothers and a biased family court system conspiring for financial gain and legal leverage to secure court orders denying fathers their rights to their children and children their rights to their father.

Ignoring mountains of empirical data that shows shared parenting to be in the best interest of families.

A System Out of Control

Florida is also one of several states to still have permanent alimony, meaning the payor makes payments for the rest of their, or their ex-spouse’s, life.541ef-flag-of-florida

Permanent alimony was necessary in the days when women rarely worked outside the home. But the growing employability of women and the rise of no-fault divorce has led most states to abandon permanent alimony.

SB 668 would have done away with permanent alimony and provided judges with more guidelines to determine both the length and the amount of the payments.

“It would have given the judges and court system a lot more guidance on what they can and can’t do,” Karges said.

Recently, a bill in Florida was vetoed by Governor Rick Scott that would have reformed the state’s alimony and child custody laws.

Scott’s decision to veto SB 668 is baffling considering it was receiving 3-to-1 support and the legislature passed it by a 2-to-1 margin. His choice is even more confounding after hearing the logic behind it.

“Current law directs a judge to consider the needs and interests of the children first when determining a parenting plan and time-sharing schedule,” Scott said in a letter to Secretary of State Ken Detzner. “This bill has the potential to upend that policy in favor of putting the wants of a parent before the child’s best interest by creating a premise of equal time sharing.”

In actuality, what the law would have done is require judges to start with the premise that children will be granted equal access to each parent. Contrary to what opponents claim, the law does not mandate a 50-50 custody split.cropped-235b5-50502brights.jpg

After beginning with the presumption of shared parenting, judges would then consider 20 factors regarding child custody that already exist in Florida law. If the judge decided a different allocation of parenting time was in a child’s best interest, then they would be required to explain why.

Once again, Scott and the bill’s opponents are ignoring mountains of empirical data that shows shared parenting to be in the best interest of families. And by bowing to special interest groups, Scott is providing another frustrating example of why it is so difficult to pass family law statutesthat would clearly benefit parents and children.rick-scott-24

Can A Mom And Dad Share The Responsibility Of Parenting? ‘Sharenting’ Or Equal Parenting On The Rise : Parenting : Parent Herald

In recent years, there has been an advent of equal parenting or “sharenting.” Although it would seem as if this concept of shared parenting would decrease the number of problems couples have with their children, there are still a couple of things they should avoid

Most of the time, when a couple has a child one of them would have to be more hands-on with the child compared to their other half. This means there is a big chance that one of them would have to give up their career in favor of parenting.

“Women aged 35-44 are 67 percent more likely to suffer work-related stress than men of the same age group,” according to an article posted on The Telegraph. These statistics come courtesy of psychiatrist, Dr. Judith Mohring.

Mohring states that another unfortunate statistic is the responsibility of parenting still falling mainly in the hands of the woman. There are set-ups wherein the father does most of the parenting work, such as in families where the mother has an on-call job, but these are still rare even to this day.

There is much promise for the new bill granting Shared Parental Leave or SPL. The British government back in April 2015 launched this. What Shared Parental Leave does is it allows the parents of a child to divide paid leave between in the first year of their child.

CHAMPIONS FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN — 7

Earlier in the week, I had an experience with a recently added member to one of our closed Facebook groups where he offered some criticism about our strategy of publicizing the need for Family Law Reform with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and within the blogosphere.

Basically, I get the sense he’s an old school guy who has spent years busting his tail to actively and publically protest against the corruption within our Family Court system, and I more or less got the feeling that he thinks what we’re doing isn’t bold or dangerous enough to attract any significant attention.

And then this morning, I was having another conversation with a friend of mine about signing a petition. Here’s how it went: 

KP:

 “I don’t know if any of you have experienced this, but for every petition I’ve signed or letter written to members of our government, I get back a generic email stating this is not an issue for that specific branch to deal with. I am then resending the petitions and asking “why not?” As long as they keep saying “not me or my problem” they continue to push our children aside. Our children should be cared for at a local, state, and federal level. If gov’t officials aren’t worried about it, they should be. After all, who’s going to be making the laws and caring for them when they’re retired and need care? I don’t want my kids being that callous. We take care of them now, they learn to care for others later.”

Michael:

“I’m not a big fan of these petitions; at least not yet. I probably get asked to sign 10 of these a day, from groups splintered all over the place, and I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t even bother, because they can’t generate enough political weight to be taken seriously – The conditions and the timing aren’t right.”

KP:

“I agree to a point. Right now, everyone’s wondering about the upcoming election and they’re treading lightly. I also agree these petitions don’t carry much weight. We are inundated with so much every day, we’re blocking a great deal of it out. But, I also know there will never be a “right time” in someone’s eyes. So, I keep bugging until someone listens. Someone, somewhere will say “now it’s time” if we keep asking.”

Michael:

“Well, in my opinion here’s the deal.  And I say this, because professionally, I deal with this a lot.

Politicians aren’t going to start taking us seriously until the Media starts taking us seriously.

And one of the first things the Media does when it wants to assess the newsworthiness of a cause is check FB, Twitter, etc. to see what kind of following the cause has. Hey, Media people are busy, and that’s a quick and dirty way for them to evaluate the potential public interest in a story, and these protests, petitions, etc. don’t have the physical weight to work well yet.

Sure, they do generate publicity, but not a significant amount, because the reality is the Media simply sees 20 or 30 people jumping up and down outside the Court house, who they perceive are merely pissed-off about having to pay child support, and they just don’t think this is newsworthy.  Of course we know this perception is wrong, but, this is the majority one today- rightly or wrongly, it is what it is.

Now, the reason why that Bank of America petition earlier this year worked so damn well is because nearly everyone LOATHES banks, especially big banks. They nickel and dime us, they hide fees, the charge interest, they sue us, foreclose on us – whatever; they tend to frequently piss EVERYONE off.  So, a petition like that already has the base and the energy, and that’s why, especially in today’s economy, it flew off the radar.

We’re not there yet.

Truthfully, there are millions of us who’re angry about that injuries that have been done to us and our children, but most aren’t seriously activated, and many are simply too afraid to speak out for fear of reprisal from a justice system relies heavily on secrecy and draconian measures to enforce its will.

But even more important, there are also one hell of a lot of folks who have a LOT to lose if reforms are actually made, and they ARE activated.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) has just under 40,000 Facebook followers.  Our two primary Lobby/Activist groups: Fathers and Families (just under 4,000 followers) and The American Coalition for Fathers and Children (just under 1,500) are not even close in terms of political capital.  And nothing significant is going to happen to accomplish our goals until these numbers come up.

So first, we have to continue to work on coming together.  And as we do this, we have to realize that it’s unrealistic to believe we will ever persuade those who don’t agree with us.  But we can influence the middle, and they too, will begin to listen once we can show social proof in the form of numbers.”

Do I think petitions and protests are valuable tactics in affecting strategies for Family Law Reform?

Yup.

However, times change, and what worked yesterday, may not work as well today.

Petitions and protests certainly have their place, and as I mentioned above, they do generate publicity.  However, we must ADAPT to the conditions of today. 

So, let me try putting it this way: If NOW started sponsoring rallies againstFamily Law Reform, and The American Coalition For Fathers and Children started sponsoring rallies for Family Law Reform; which group do you think will be awarded greater credibility by the Media and the Public at large?

Effective strategy means adapting and exploiting current conditions to your advantage.  Petitions and protests appear to offer that quick fix we so desperately want, but the problem is, the conditions aren’t optimal for those tactics to work well yet.

Social networking platforms like Facebook give each one of us the power and the ability to publicize the truth without having to depend on the Media to do it.  And interestingly enough, it’s that very power that, these days, will actually work to attract the attention of the Media in the first place.

Statistically, each one of us knows at least two or three people within our group of Facebook friends who’ve been screwed over by the Family Court. 

Have you reached out to them?  Have you pointed them toward a group, page, or cause that can offer them love, support, and an opportunity to get involved?

The lesson here is a simple one: work on setting up and building the right conditions, then any number of tactics will have great power.

HRC reports that a Central Florida judge has ordered the University of Central Florida to turn over records related to a 2012 study by Mark Regnerus about gay and lesbian parents.

Regnerus is an associate professor of sociologyat the University of Texas at Austin.  Bilerico Project journalist John Becker sued UCF for the documents.

Becker on Tuesday wrote that “Mark Regnerus’s dubious and discredited New Family Structures Study falsely claimed to show that children of same-sex couples do worse than children raised by opposite-sex couples.”

The harm that conflicts over custody can do to children; and that the fight itself can cause the most damage

The Honorable Lawson E Thomas (1898-1989)
Lawson E. Thomas was an outstanding civil rights activist who worked tirelessly to make a pronounced change in Miami’s social and political environment, and who did so utilizing the law as his tool. His first major victory on behalf of a group of clients was gained in the late 1940s when he represented black parents in Broward County who successfully sued the School Board over unequal treatment of their children. At the time, the school year for black children was three months shorter than for white children, so that black children would be available to work in the bean fields.

Researching Reform: ‘Children’s Mental Health in the 21st Century – a Barometer We Can’t Ignore’

A. Do child custody proceedings and family laws violate substantive due process rights of fit parents, as contrary to the United States Supreme Court Jurisprudence that state courts are not to enter the family realm without a compelling interest?
B. Does a child have a reciprocal substantive right to the care, custody, and companionship of his or her parent, reciprocal to that of the child’s parents?
C. Does the current Family Court climate deliberately and systematically violate the civil and constitutional rights of families?
D. Are parents second-class citizens?
E. Is there a nobility in this country?
F. Do Family Courts across America engage in conducting a cottage industry as a RICO Enterprise?
G. Are Family Courts operating a “Kids for Cash” scheme to sell parents’ own children back to them?
H. Has the domestic relations exception of Federal Court created a “black hole” of injustice?
I. Do Family Courts operate as quasi-criminal courts and as such, shouldn’t families be entitled to the same procedural protections as criminal courts?
J. Do Family Courts across America deliberately and systematically usurp the Constitution of the United States of America?
K. Do Family Courts across America deliberately and systematically usurp federal case law such as that of Troxel v. Granville, Santosky v. Kramer, and Griswold v. Connecticut?
L. Are these acts not seditious? Treason?
M. Would it not be better to abolish the Family Courts altogether as they seem to serve no other purpose than to terrorize families pursuant to 18 USC § 2331?
N. Should families negotiate with these terrorists contrary to public policy?
O. Has society changed in a way that requires a change in legal principles?

FRE 501 permits federal judges to announce evidentiary privileges that are not codified, but that should be recognized in view of changes in societal values.

FLORIDA DOMESTIC VIOLENCE LAWS

Domestic violence law in Florida is not just one law, but several laws that operate together. Thus, it is more accurate to think and speak in terms of Florida’s Domestic Violence Laws. The reason is very simple: Florida’s legal system creates many different types of domestic abuse that constitute a violation of the criminal law.

One of the most significant problems with the entire statutory structure is the absence of even recognizing false allegations. Sure, Florida has a section prohibiting the filing of a false police report. Yet, the penalty is a misdemeanor – unless the victim of a false allegation is in a special protected class, such as law enforcement officers. Worse, these types of offenses are almost never prosecuted and when they are, they receive scant publicity compared to the publicity an alleged abuser receives.

Florida Domestic Violence Laws: Overview and FAQ 

bc8cb-afla2bcauses2bto2bblog2b82b-2b2015FALSE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGE AWARENESS MONTH

June is False Domestic Violence Charge Awareness Month in Florida. Each year, thousands of lives are damaged by false domestic violence charges. Why do people – men and women – file false domestic violence charges? Several reasons:

  • To gain leverage in a divorce action
  • To protect themselves when the police are called and they are afraid of prosecution if they don’t make a false accusation
  • To win a lawsuit, often without even filing one – gaining hush money
  • To get ‘payback’ for a slight, real or perceived
  • Simply because someone is angry
  • To win an argument in a very dramatic and public fashion
  • To join the ‘brotherhood and sisterhood of victimhood’ – being a ‘victim’ gains a special status, a place of honor for their ‘suffering.’

A Domestic Violence charge is far too serious to be trivialized by false allegations, which are rarely prosecuted on the flimsy ground that prosecuting false accusers would deter real victims.

Real victims are people who have truly been victimized by the wrongful, violent conduct of another person – including victims of Domestic Legal Violence: The use of Law Enforcement Officers to physically force someone into jail and force them to be prosecuted and threatened with further imprisonment for a crime they did not commit.

“Most state laws require that courts treat mothers and fathers equally when it comes to matters of child custody. When I presided as a judge in Manhattan family court, that was the law, and that’s how I treated each custody case. Families, especially children, suffer when this law is not followed. Unfortunately, I’ve seen this happen all too often. What has been your experience with this difficult subject? I look forward to your stories.” ~ Judge JudyFalse Domestic Violence Allegations As Advised by Family Law Lawyers - 2015

Judge Judy Sheindlin on Joint Custody

When Judy Sheindlin was on Larry King Live last week, the issue of joint custody came up. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

SHEINDLIN (“Judge Judy”): I was a lawyer in the family court for ten years. I worked for the corporation counsel’s office of the City of New York. I prosecuted juvenile delinquency cases. I did support and paternity. So, I was in the trenches and even then, Larry, it took me time.

I remember the first day that I took the bench. It was in the Bronx and the court officers, if was pretty formal back then, court officer said, you know, say “All rise” and I stood up because I was accustomed to they say “All rise.” We stood and finally the court officer said “You can sit down now, judge. They’re standing for you. You can sit down.” So, even when you have experience you need time to get comfortable in your chair.

KING: I had a judge who became a federal judge told me once that the hardest thing to decide was custody cases. First he had no experience. Who has experience with custody cases? He’s been happily married, has children. Who gets whom? Isn’t that the hardest to give a child from one parent to another?

SHEINDLIN: Yes. Sometimes it’s relatively easy because the choices are clear but I’ve always thought in this country we do a terrible disservice to fathers. You know there was a time many years ago when we had what we called the Tender Years Doctrine, which meant children of tender years, young children, always went to their mother.

And then all of the courts in this country said that’s not fair. We have to be equal. So, on the books there is a law that says no one parent is favored over the other, now that’s honored more in the breach than it is honored in actuality. And, I have been a proponent for many years of there being a presumption in this country for joint custody of children. That’s where courts should start.

KING: That’s where you begin?

SHEINDLIN: That’s where you begin and if you’re going to deviate from that, you have to demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that there is some valid reason why you’re going to deviate from that because one parent is crazy, one parent has a drug problem, an alcohol problem, something’s wrong.

But that should be the standard joint custody because children are entitled to be raised by two parents even if the parents don’t get along anymore. I mean I think it’s horrendous when one parent picks up and moves out of the state or moves 250 miles away and some judge in the family court, the domestic relations court usually if it’s the mother who has moved away says, “Well, we’ll have a hearing to determine whether it was the right thing.”

No, no, no, no, no. You can’t say to people who you’ve lulled into this sense of I’m equal, you’re an equal father. You can take off paternity leave. We expect you to participate in the rearing of your children, to go to open school night, to be out there to play with them. Very often there are two people working in the household. They divide authority and you’re equal except when there’s a divorce.

And then, how often, Larry, I ask you the question, do you hear it quoted in the paper “He lost custody of his children”? You don’t hear that. You hear “She lost custody. There must be something wrong with her.”
Well I think that that has to change in this country because it was my experience in the family court, and I left the family court ten years ago, but even my experience on the television courtroom suggests to me that there are as wonderful a group of fathers out there as a group of mothers and it’s about time that this country recognize that in not only the letter of the law but the spirit of the law as well.
