Petition Tag - fathers
Children in father-absent homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in mother-only families.
A study of 1330 children from the PSID showed that fathers who are involved on a personal level with their child schooling increases the likelihood of their child's achievement.
When fathers assume a positive role in their child's education, students feel a positive impact.
I am petitioning against the government and the state of ohio. Giving all parental rites to the mother at birth is unfair.
I believe that the fathers should have 50% of the parental rites of their children. Regardless of their marital status.
Our Goal is to demand for a change in Child Support Laws, Guidelines, and create a Child Support Tax Law that will be fair for most all cases.
Child Support Laws and Guidelines currently vary from state to state with each state having different branches of the Government establishing the child support guidelines.

Not enough action is being taken against dead beat parents who work under the table, jump from job to job, house to house in order to avoid paying child support.
They don't file taxes, don't keep their addresses current with the USPS and 'fly under the radar' as much as possible to avoid being help responsible for their own flesh and blood. It's time for it to stop.
Richard A. Gardner, M.D. introduced the term parental alienation syndrome and pioneered its study. In his efforts to assist people who were interested in learning about parental alienation syndrome and educating courts about PAS and its acceptance in the scientific community, and in response to misrepresentations that work on PAS had not been published in scientific journals, Dr. Gardner maintained on his Web site a list of references on parental alienation syndrome, a list of legal citations, a list of professional conferences on parental alienation syndrome, and a list of lectures that Dr. Gardner had been invited to deliver on parental alienation syndrome.
In May 2003 Dr. Gardner passed away. Since then a few of us throughout the world has stepped up to the plate to keep the truth out there. People that believe this is a form of abuse of human rights of the child. That children should not be caught up in adult conflict and have the right to both of their parents without interference by the other.

This is a petition to help the father's out there being singled out of their children's life's by the British Court System. The Government has done nothing to help the father's and their children.
The court system stays one sided and the father's and their children are separated because the court system says so. It is never about what's best for the children it is about how to take the children's father down. This has to stop father's have just as much love and care for their children as mother's do. We need to do something to help the fathers in the UK get their rights with their children and their life's !
This petition is for all those who are great father's and deserve equal rights. In many cases it is not just the mother that is needed. A father that is caring and loving just as the mother deserve EQUAL rights to their children !!!
I am planning on taking this as far as I possibly can until there is no where to go and right now I believe our government in the UK and Canada and the States all over the world really don't see the whole picture for the father's except for them to be the one to nail in a court room even when they did nothing to deserve it except love their children !!! This has to stop !!!
Please if everyone would kindly send this to everyone you can to help our fathers and their children get what they so much deserve.. Thanks everyone that signs this petition and for your caring and love for everyone we are fighting for !!
New Fathers 4 Justice is administered by a group of former F4J members who have all been involved in some form of direct action. We will actively help, support, encourage and publicize non violent direct action in the name of fathers rights. We believe that direct action is the only way to keep the pressure on the Government, CMEC, Family Law system and those that support them to force a change.We will uphold the ethos of the original F4J.
This will be done by using the tragic comedy style in an ever changing methods of direct action and protest. We hope to carry on where F4J left off.
Please note that we can not offer support or personal advice but will attempt to offer help whenever possible based on our experiences of these governmental structures. Now that awareness has been achieved, interest, desire and ultimately action are now our goals
1) To build a culture of the "family unit" and promote that two parents are better than one.
2) To promote that every child needs a daddy.
3) To promote that it is bad parenting to alienate a child from their daddy.
4) To promote that it is child abuse to stop contact with the father.
5) To promote that society needs dads as well as mums. We all matter.
What We Want - Two Measures Of Reform
1) Open Courts -
To be brought in line with the crown and magistrates courts. This will prevent corruption, biasness and implement a culture of accountability to the judiciary.
2) An Automatic Presumption Of Equal Contact When Parents Split. -
To have equality, will mean that both parents will have equal parity over seeing their children. Naturally, this will be in the best interests of the child.
Many women obtain abortions everyday. Father's of the unborn children are portrayed to be abusive, or to force their partner into receiving the abortion, this is untrue.
Many fathers want to be a part of the mother's decision to keep or abort the baby. Studies show that only 19% of fathers in abortion clinic waiting rooms affirmed the idea of having the abortion.
9. Prava očeva
Web stranicu www.otac.ba je pokrenuo Britanac Morgan Sowden, koji je dosao u Sarajevo 2003., slijedeci svoju djecu, koju je otela njihova majka iz San Francisca. Morgan je pokrenuo web stranicu u februaru 2007. godine, nakon cetiri godine izgovora i prazne price od strane socijalnih radnika, sudkinje i vlasti.
Odmah u startu nam je bilo jasno da Morgan nije jedini otac koji se bori za pravdu i za ravnoporavnost spolova kada su u pitanju porodicna pitanja, tako da je stranica otac.ba postala vrlo popularna.
Sada, nakon samo sest mjeseci postojanja, vec postoji velika regionalna mreza slicnih ustanova i blogova koja se bavi pravima na kontakt oceva sa djecom:

Nedavno je pokretac www.otac-cg.com, Nebojša Novović, predlozio jednu online-peticiju koja bi u potpunosti objasnila sta mi ocevi trazimo. Peticija slijedi. Ako se slazete, potpisete i posaljite peticiju drugima da potpisu.
Nas cilj je 1000 potpisa...
Zasto 1000 potpisa?
Zato sto je najcesci izgovor u Centrima za socijalni rad/skrb da "Vi, kao dobar otac, ste izuzetak". Zelimo dokazati da nismo izuzeci!
In the news lately and in my own life single fathers have been getting a bad wrap. Now just last week a good friend of mine lost custody of his four children to their pathetic excuse of a mother thanks to her conniving and lying solicitor.
The suicide rate of men who have lost custody of their children is higher than that of other groups. So please take two minutes of your time and sign my petition.

I am writing to you to demand change on an epidemic that is destroying families, fathers, and children right here in our country.
Simply put, the "Family Court" system as it now exists has stripped fathers of their rights to be a part of their children's lives. Instead, fathers have turned into financial pumps, living in constant fear of being dragged back into court by the mother and victimized yet again.
It is fair to say that the Children's Amendment Act of 2002 is biased against the fathers. Children aren't things that you buy off of a shelf in the grocery store. The whole child support system needs to be scrapped, and built up in a manner that the father and mother have equal rights to the child in question.
There is one judge in the family court that is clogging up the jails with fathers that don't pay support. If you take a look down the Prison Farm, you would notice that the majority of men down there are sent there by Judge Chin. It's really hard for a man to go to court and state his case when Judge Chin is leaning to one side THE WOMAN!!!! I am a woman, and I feel that he is very biased.
This Government has an important role in changing this act. The person who is suffering through this whole ordeal is the child. It's not fair that when I go up on the Bermuda Laws Website there is nothing in there about a "Father's Bill of Rights" or "Fathers Rights". Why is it that a female has the last say when it comes to the care and control of a child? Why is it that she holds all the cards?
Fathers are not treated right in the Bermuda court system. Children need their fathers, as fathers need rights and access to their children. The Bermuda Court System needs to be changed to enable this to occur. Right here in our country, our homeland where we feel justified in wanting to raise our Child (ren) are we being stripped of our rights.
We, as parents have a fundamental right to assume equal periods of placement of our children, unless there is credible evidence that a parent is not fit, that placement would be harmful to the child (ren). This right is fundamental; not that one parent must win as a result of lengthy, intrusive and costly legal battle, or compromised simply to reach a stipulated agreement to avoid a battle.
I hope that this hits home, and you consider a change in the system. This letter will be sent to the Premier, The Governor, The Senate, until somebody in this country stands up and fights for fathers. We need to do more to make sure both parents are fully involved in the raising of their children, particularly fathers. We will start a petition, walk on parliament and call you out. This is just the beginning.
Child support issues, unfairness toward fathers that pay child support, and over charging in support.
There need to be a oranganizion for father, the office of child support is unfair in the way they deal with law abiding fathers.

All fathers should have rights to spend time with, or even call if not able to see their child or children. Whether if local or long distance, they should have the right to make a choice to see or call them at anytime if needed.
In too many cases, California fathers end up paying child support on other men's children AND DON'T KNOW IT! Often the mother involved DOES know that the child or children are not the children of her husband, but she claims that they are his children because she is mad at him and she likes the children's father. This is fraud.
When she makes that claim to a court in a divorce or a child support action, she is committing perjury. She may claim to be doing it "for the children". A crime committed "for the children" is still a crime.
The #1 one targets of such frauds are our Military Man who proudly and voluntarily serve our country. It is not fair!
Write to Congress and express your concerns of this wrong doing.
Soldiers Risking Their Lives in Iraq Might Face Prison Over Child Support Upon Return
By Stephen Baskerville, Ph.D.
Soldiers Risking Their Lives in Iraq Might Face Prison Over Child Support Upon Return
As America's servicemen risk their lives to protect their families and ours, the federal government is preparing to put them in jail.
That's right; you heard correctly. Most societies honor their returning heroes. In America we punish them.
Soldiers who ship off to Iraq risk not only their lives but arrest and jail when they return. Those who accept a pay cut to defend their country can be incarcerated when they are unable to pay the impossible child support burdens imposed on them by the federal government's divorce machinery.
It is mind-boggling that servicemen who risk their lives to protect us will face arrest as they step off the plane. Yet this is precisely what happened after Desert Storm, and it will happen again this time.
The federal government has issued the usual PR smokescreen, urging soldiers to contact their local child support agents to request a modification. But such requests are almost never granted. Child support fills government coffers with federal taxpayers' money. Governments have no incentive to give these soldiers a break and plenty of incentive not to.
The Christian Science Monitor reports that a soldier whose domestic job pays $31,000 must pay $900 a month in child support. His reserve pay will reduce his income to $27,000. The Monitor neglects to point out that even at the higher pay, this is about half the man's take-home pay, and that he is likely to be living on less than $1,000 a month. Another father's child support comprises 73% of his income, leaving him $200 a month to live on.
Do we really believe that these heroes are "deadbeat dads" who went to Iraq to avoid paying child support? If not, perhaps it is time we began to examine whether the entire child support system is anything other than a fraud. If these men are not "deadbeats," then who is? If these arrests are an abuse of government power, why are not all the others?
Attempts to protect our civilization from external threats will be pointless if we allow it to be undermined from within. How long do we expect men to sacrifice their lives and livelihoods for their country when their government steals their children and uses those children to extort huge sums of money from their fathers?
What kind of morale can we expect in our armed forces when the same brave men who risk their lives to protect their families from invasion by terrorists are powerless to protect their families from invasion by their own government.
Now imagine this happening to you or one of your love ones. To add insult to injury you find out that the child you are being forced to support is not even yours and your ex-wife or ex-girlfriend knew about it since day one!
For FCF News on Demand, this is Stephen Baskerville.
This petition is drawn up to better support the children by increasing child support. We would like child support to be increased to a minimum of $100 for fathers that are/ are not working and/or receiving a source of income of at least $300 per month. Therefore, some fathers may decide to work instead of depending on state or federal assistance because of the decrease in income. This will be putting more money into society and creating more jobs.
My wife and I separate and file for Divorce. I tell the court that I want JOINT PHYSICAL CUSTODY of our children. I know that because of my work, I would not be able to physically have the children 50% of the time but this would allow me some flexibility in seeing the kids. My wife is angry and bitter about the impending divorce so she finds a weapon to use against me. It's called the Family Court System. She tells them that I am a threat to her and/or our children. Then without any evidence or testimony from anyone, she is granted a Restraining Order against me. I am not only NOT allowed to see my own children, I am also ordered to attend weekly Domestic Violence classes for 1 year at a cost of $40 per class. I ask Judge Nancy Pollard of Orange County Family Court, on what grounds is she taking away my rights as a Father and branding me as a violent person. She said that all the evidence she needs is to believe that my wife is actually in fear of me in some way. I told her that that was ridiculous. I said that I would become a criminal just for trying to see my own kids. She told me to shut up or be charged with contempt.
During my 15 years of marriage, there was NEVER any incident of Domestic Violence. I was (and still am) a caring loving Father
who was voted Father of the Year by my Daughters Girl Scout Troop. My kids went to Catholic School and played sports. I was very much involved in their lives even though I work an average of 60 hours per week.
I was granted a MONITORED 2 hour visit every other Saturday by Judge Pollard but I was still ordered
to pay a large amount of Child Support. Even with the meager visitation rights I was given, my wife still "missed" several of the visits until I had to go to the local Police and file a report.
I have no problem paying Child Support. I do have a problem with a court system that plays into a bitter woman's hands and allows her to continue to use our children as weapons. This is tantamount to Child Abuse.
Now we are talking about Parental Alienation Syndrome. She is not only keeping my children from me but she is turning them against me in every way. She will not be happy until they feel the same way about me as she does. This should be a crime!
I know from talking to people and reading a lot that I am not alone here. There are many of you Fathers that are going through similar situations. I feel for you. Something must be done to stop the abuse of the Family Court Systems and give Fathers equal custody and visitation rights!
The assumption of paternity law in Pennsylvania basically states that if a married woman has an affair and bares a child as a result of the affair then in order to preserve her current marriage the father of the child involved in the affair has virtually no rights to the child he has fathered because the child is assumed to be of the husbands creation. I believe this is a violation of human and civil rights and it should not be tolerated. We always preach the important role of a father in a child's life but here in Pennsylvania it seems we like to promote deadbeat dads with a outdated and cruel law such as this. It's prevents good people who want to be involved with their children from doing that very thing. People make mistakes and therefore potential fathers should be able to have visitation with their children doing this doesn't have to put a current marriage in jeopardy. Under the assumption of paternity law potential fathers can't get DNA tests or blood tests done to prove that they are the father because as I said the child is assumed to be of the husband. I always learned that the law was about fact and not assumption so this law is in my view unlawful. I believe it is an old leftover that was on the books to protect women's honor in the poodle skirt generation but everyone knows those days are gone and today women should be held accountable for their actions just as men are. Visiting a child you created doesn't have to ruin a marriage and everyone should have the right to know if they are a father and visit that child if they're suitable and proven to be fathers thank you and please sign to abolish this law in Pennsylvania.

My Name is Edward Goldstone. I am just one of many fathers who has had to say goodbye to their child. The last time I saw my son was July 9, 2000. This is due in large part to a court system that has large biases in custudy cases that give more rights to mothers as a parent. More often than not, the courts note only the father's income, rather than their ability to love and care for their child.
On December 22,1999, at the Abbotsford Courthouse, I was given legal visitation rights to see my son, and was required to pay a monthy child maintenance. Since then, in breach of the law, his mother has taken him and disappeared, denying me the right to see my boy, Austin. With the aid of private investigator, I have searched for my son's mother and grandmother with no success. I continue to pay monthly maintenance. Family Maintenance Program (which I volunteered to pay her through) knows where they are but doesn't have authorization to tell me.
Although she is deliberately breaking the law, the authorities can do nothing to stop her. This is due to the omission of a peace officer clause. Without this clause the police can't help me, essentially the court order means nothing. I am trying to get Dads' voices heard. Both parents should be given joint custody (providing the child is not in any danger) and a peace officer clause be included, to make the order inforceable.
I would like your help to put pressure on the Canadain Government to change these out-dated laws. You could help greatly by signing this petition. Its time for dads to have equal rights as parents!
