Jalen Lawson started this petition to Courthouses

I am putting forth this petition to grant fathers more rights from birth. When a child is born, both parents should automatically be granted 50/50 on rights for the child, unless proven otherwise in a court of law. It is unfair how some fathers are treated due to certain situations such as unpaid child support. The consequences are harsh and highly detrimental to the father’s ability to support their child. One of the major repercussions includes preventing them from keeping their driver’s license. This becomes extremely important, because it hinders the father’s ability to accomplish the daily routines needed in order to support a child. In addition, many higher wage jobs have a driver’s license requirement. Furthermore, the current system is leaving fathers unable to be approved for housing, which makes it difficult to provide a stable home for the child without depending on family assistance. Also, there is a tremendous strain mentally on some fathers not being able to see their child as often as they should be guaranteed. I want this petition to cause change for the future fathers, so they don’t have to go through all the pain caused by the hoops and red tape some fathers have to go through. Fathers love their children just as much as a mother; and if they are putting in the effort, they should have the benefits to go along with it. 
Can we please get 100,000 signatures, let’s make a change please.
