I am the wife of a great father who has been denied his right of access to his children. My husband like   so many men in the family court system spend time, money and resources to receive no support to be able to see their children and be equal parents. This same systems says however that these fathers are expected to provide for their children financially and if they fell to do so they are imprisoned, their professional and drivers licenses are suspended.

The same penalty therefore should be imposed upon mothers who use their own agendas to deny their children’s rights to access to  their fathers and to deny the fathers right to raise their child equally. This denial is child abuse. The emotional and social implications are well felt into the future lives of children who have not known their fathers and have not established the healthy bonds they need to become healthy adults.

The use of the children by scorned  women to punish fathers for relationship shortcoming or personal baggage must be met with criminal prosecution. The same penalties that the failure of a father to pay child support brings. The social and emotional damage that the denial of a fatherly relationship is as important as the physical needs of the child that is met with the

Withholding children and the lengthy court time that it takes to resolve access and visitation issues takes lengthy amounts of time all the while the children are growing and that time cannot be returned. Often by the time issues are resolved through the lengthy judicial system children have grown and that chance of parenting that child and knowing them as the mother has had the opportunity to do is gone. This is such an injustice to our children and to our fathers.

Please help stop this systematic abuse of our children and our fathers. Help us to make fathers rights heard. It should not be a civil issue when  children are being denied access to their father, this is abuse. It must be criminally punished and the same repercussions should be imposed as that of a parent not paying their child support. 

Our children are crying out for help and they can’t help themselves. Fathers everywhere are crying out to help their children that they can’t nurture  properly and help to grow because a system does not hold their interests in the same regards as a mothers interests have been. This can no longer be. This system of thinking is old and barbaric and it must be changed. 

For the children being emotionally abused and the fathers unsupported to change it, please make your voices heard. Our children deserve more.
