The mission is to promote equitable family laws and practices that will respect the rights and needs of all family members.
The Family Courts are no place for the faint of heart. The system is designed to destroy families both financially and emotionally. The adversarial process is no way to end a marriage, especially when children are involved. This is a story about those children.
Currently social security title IV D provides incentive to states to order minimal parenting time for non custodial parents in order to maximize the amount of child support noncustodial parents pay because the states get matching federal funds,
NOT for collecting child support arrears, but for every dollar of child support ORDERED.
This is destroying families in the name of money. Would you support family law and social security title IV D reform in order to protect families?
The vision is for Fathers to have Equal Rights and that society will recognize the right and need of every child to have a healthy relationship with both parents, regardless of the status of their family structure.These efforts are directed to the non-custodial parent. Child support increases are done without a hearing or notification to the non-custodial parent through administrative writs.
In most circumstances, women are named the custodial parent. The Attorney General’s office would support custody to an incarcerated woman over a man. These are the rules and anything outside the rules or norm costs the noncustodial parent and the children.
Clearly, an honest person can see that this system is set up for disaster on all levels and those most victimized, the children, remain without a lobby. Now, before you dismiss this story as a pro-dad hit piece, you should know that 40% of the people aided by Fathers for Equal Rights are women.
The benefit of encouraging parental cooperation in the raising and rearing of children is priceless. No amount of money or child support collection is going to replace a child’s relationship with their parent. The memories of your dad or mom helping with school work, reading aloud, and coaching little league are what shapes us, builds character, and molds our identities. The benefits are obvious.
A parent should have a legally protected right to see and participate in their child’s life. And, a child should have a right to know both of their parents, except in cases of proven child abuse. This right should be the priority of government, courts, family law judges, and legislators.
Now is the time for voters to ask questions about a court system that alienates children from their parents. As we have seen in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
