Fatherless Day Letter to President Barack Obama

Fatherless Day Letter to President Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President, 

It's Fatherless Day again, while you are enjoying Fathers Day with your children, many of us will be wondering where our children are, we are worried if they are ok, and even praying that they are alive and well. Over the years you have acknowledged the importance of Fathers in their Children's lives. You have asked that we "Step Up" even chastised us for not doing so but in all too many situations, those are not the facts. The facts are, the majority of us would do anything to share in our Children's lives.

As you are very well aware, Federal funding to the States through the Social Security Act's Title IV-D, Title IV-E and VAWA programs are preventing us from participating in our Children's lives. These Federal programs provide billions of dollars in funding to separate children, a full 85% of the time nationally, it is the father from their lives...

This is a terrible injustice and nothing short of child abuse. The adverse effects of Fatherlessness directly correlates with literally every social ill that we suffer today. Just like the Women's Rights Movement, just Like the Civil Rights Movement and just like the Gay Rights Movement, we all knew their efforts were true and correct yet we waited and watched as the toll on society became unbearable before our government finally stepped up.

Today, at this point in time in history, literally generations of families have been destroyed. All too many Americans have no idea what it is like to be a part of a family, they have no idea of the importance of family, many do not even know who or where their family members are. Do you think this is in the best interest of our Children? Do you think this is in the best interest of America?

Mr. President, It's time for you to "Step Up", we need a full scale investigation into these federal programs as well as the family and juvenile courts of America. We need to open up not just a Senate Investigation and Advisory Committee but we also need for you to open a positive dialogue with, "We The People". Our country, our society, our families and our children are waiting and depending on you.

La práctica judicial impone la custodia materna  --  viso at CUSTODIA PATERNA -  *MÉXICO* Aranzazú Ayala Martínez escribe el artículo fuente. La escritora se apoya en el testimonio de un letrado de familia que conoce, parece ser, bien lo que sucede en el día a día en los tribunalesde México. Se centra en una población, Puebla, pero al final del artículo manifiesta que aún sin conocer que sucede en el resto de ciudades, cree que muy posiblemente existan los mismos prejuicios que en Puebla. Por lo vista allí aún continúa vigente ese apartado de la normativa legal que indica que ase pondrá bajo la custodia de la madre a los hijos menores ... more »

“Borrando a Papá” 

ilumina lucha de padres por sus hijos en Argentina viso at CUSTODIA PATERNA -  Un documental estrenado en Argentina que visualiza una realidad contra la que se disponen de miles de millones para que el sistema que da vida a dicha realidad persista. No són leyes las que consienten y permiten que el menor resulte huérfano de padre vivo, no, en el artículo se presenta al motivo como una trilogía compuesta por un sistema para alejar a los menores de sus padres formado por jueces, asociaciones y psicólogos. El documental que lleva por nombre "Borrando a papá" fue primero cancelado y después tras su emisión ha sido censurado por la justicia... more » 

Is It Lack of Understanding or lack of Backbone?

Recently, I had the ambivalent experience of reading a Court Order in a case with clear cut Parental Alienation. The Court ordered a Custody Evaluation by a forensic evaluator with deep experience with parental alienation. The report was very thorough and the recommendations were very clear. Given the severity of the circumstances (which had been allowed to simmer for years due to procedural delays), it was recommended by the evaluator that custody be given from the alienating parent - who was clearly identified as such - to the targeted parent, in order to effect a remedy and to ge... more »  J Michael Bone, PhD at J Michael Bone, PhD - 3 years ago  

Dealing with Judicial Anxiety

Increasingly, even as we become better and being clearer and more precise as to what will help remedy a parental alienation case, it appears to be the case that Judge's often hesitate to follow such recommendations. Very often, the targeted parent will have been accused falsely of being in some way dangerous, unstable or otherwise suspect as a parent. Since the court should always carefully examine any potential danger that such a parent might represent, it should then also recognize that the fact remains that parents are falsely accused of tendencies and acts that are not them. In ... more »
