It is important because i believe that no matter the age of a child they should spend an equal amount of time with both father and mother. The laws and courts currently favor women and i believe that is not right. There are fathers out there who truly want to be with their children and be a big part of their lives but because the wife had a great attorney the father loses that right.

      Since my divorce in 08, the courts basically have forced me to "divorce' my kids. I still see them every other wkend and summer visitation but my kids suffer from not having their father in their day to day life. I'm kept from school events, doctors appointments, even denied information regarding heath records because of the HIPA law and the ex wife chooses not to share it with me! And I carry the health insurance! I'm not allowed to sign my kids up for sports, children services have investigated abuse in the home but they aren't allowed to share the info with me... So I'm just a bank account, I'm supposed to pay my child support and sit back and shut up! Enough is enough, all parents deserve EQUAL rights as long as it doesn't pose a danger to the child. I divorced their mother, not my kids!

      PLEASE listen to the song I wrote entitled, Daddy, Mama & Me. It's about this issue. What father's go through is ridiculous! I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a music video and push it into going viral. We HAVE to get this issue noticed! The link is below. I TRULY think that with the social media we have at our fingertips, as a community, we CAN be heard. Instead of re-writing everything it's all explained in the link. Please note that Kickstarter won't allow 'causes' so I had to carefully work my verbage, BUT read the words of the song. It'll hit home. If you like my campaign please share. I only have 39 days left....

      After attempting to get changes to my step-son's custody it completely frustrates me that the child's best interest is never the most important factor when determining who has custody. A mother can do everything in her power to undermine the father and courts look the other way. A father can be a better parent than the mother but depending on the state, overturning an original judgement is nearly impossible even with hard facts proving the mother is not as involved or has the child's best interest at heart. Sending my step-son back to his mother crying breaks my heart. It's disgusting that my step-son's grandmother (mother's mother) even feels he should be with his father but the courts don't agree.

      A father's right to raise his child is constitutionally protected but de facto denied. And society now pays the cost in crime & the disgusting practice of drugging of maladjusted youth . Support & encourage - don't deny & hurdle - father's rights.
