Your Voice In Our Government


“Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day.

Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. A most insidious form of fear is that which masquerades as common sense or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless, insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of courage which help to preserve man's self-respect and inherent human dignity. It is not easy for a people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of the principle that might is right to free themselves from the enervating miasma of fear. Yet even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man.

The Fundamental Rights to Parent

How do the courts transform a stay-at-home parent into a parent who only gets to spend every other weekend with the kids?

The Legislative intent of the State of Florida and the Florida Statutes  reflect a presumption of "shared custody," but fails to define what that means.

As a result, judges routinely assign one parent primary custody and limit children to spending 4 days or less per month with the other parent. If a judge feel it is in the best interest of the child to spend less time with one parent, the judge should be required to specify what steps the noncustodial parent needs to take in order to be granted equal time with the child.

"I will fight for your rights and bring back your fathers into your lives!"

A brave presidential candidate our society needs and our children deserve!


"America leads the industrialized world in fatherlessness. Right now, around 41 percent of children are born to single mothers. For women under 30, who bear two-thirds of all children, that rate is 53 percent. In total, about one-third of all children are raised in father-absent homes. By some estimates, this means more kids are growing up with televisions in their bedroom than with both of their biological parents. Boys are especially affected by this trend. Without positive and consistent male role models, society misses out on much of their constructive potential.

It’s no coincidence 70 percent of male inmates did not grow up with both parents, for example. Across the board, children with intact families have more advantages than their fatherless peers.

A report published by The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says children of married biological parents or adoptive parents are healthier, have fewer definite or severe emotional or behavioral difficulties and are less likely to grow up in poverty.

The gap between rich and poor will keep getting worse as fatherlessness rises among those of lower socioeconomic status.Children who grow up without fathers are more likely to become single mothers or absent dads, use drugs, have low academic achievement and are less likely to believe in marriage or have successful marriages.

Children who had frequent and positive interactions with their fathers, such as the father paying attention to the child’s interests, offering encouragement and smiling, during the first year of their lives were calmer and better behaved than other children at age two. This was especially true for boys.

The government can step up by commissioning a White House Council on Boys and Men. There is currently a White House Council on Girls and Women, but they have yet to support a similar platform for men, even though it has been proposed and endorsed by a number of experts.

Creating policies that support a father’s right to be present in his children’s lives during divorce and custody battle situations, eliminating perverse welfare incentives for parents to live apart, offering men paternity leave equal to maternity leave, providing childcare for both mothers and fathers and encouraging family members to visit inmates would also be steps in the right direction."

"Family Law Reform 2016"

Ted Fattoross Worthy
by Dr. Ted Fattoross

During the last 25+ years as a speaker within the educational, corporate, nonprofit and government agency sectors I came to realize how we all struggle with feeling "worthy". Worthy of praise, worthy of receiving love, worthy of being edified, acknowledged and rewarded. I've seen it in most everyone - from the child in 2nd grade to the CEO of a Fortune 500 company and from the bus driver to the physician.

My intuition tells me that we are born boundless with unlimited potential with the seeds of greatness planted within us while in our mother's womb. Upon birth this seed is, at times, nurtured, sometimes ignored or, worse yet, compromised. As we all know, "it takes an entire village to raise one child, one president, one bus driver, one physician. We, as a community, effect each child and have a responsibility to be a role model for every one of them. If a child does not see their heroes at the dinner table they will search them out on the street.

The street can be a dangerous place - especially for a child looking to "fit in" by being validated. We all know there are people who do not have the child's best interest in mind - and, at times, this may even come from the home. One way a home can be a dangerous place for a child is Parental Alienation. It's dangerous to the child's self-esteem, compassion and moral compass. It is most dangerous to the child's relationship with the absent parent.

Parental alienation divides families and destroys the emotional well-being of the child. The child, of course, goes on to become an adult and will most likely repeat the cycle of pain, separation and anxiety. We as a community have a responsibility to help heal each other ... not just the children but also the adults involved. And to heal not just the individuals involved at the nuclear familial level but the relatives and extended family, teachers and principals, guidance counselors, social workers, psychologists, doctors, attorneys, judges, police; anyone who becomes involved with the child and parents who are victims or perpetrators of Parental Alienation.

The legal and judicial systems, the educational and medical professions, along with churches and community organizations are, in my opinion, the most underserved communities within the Parental Alienation Syndrome.

Whether you know it or not, we are all in this together, each and every one of us. You may not even ask to be involved or think you ever would be involved, but what will you do if a child confides in you, or you see an injustice taking place? Will you turn your back?

I would love to see the end of Parental Alienation. I, as just one man, one Dad, one caring person, want to do something to help better these situations. Are you with me?

I want to leave you with a poem, some tips and a picture to remind us all that we are "worthy."

Children need more time, not more toys.

Children need more love not more stress.

Children need to be children; not adults.

Children are not their grades.

Discipline your children consistently but LOVE them UN-conditionally. (agape)

Born Complete
by Ted Fattoross

We are born complete,
we are not born deficient.
We need not be fixed,
for we are not broken.
We are whole, not fragmented.
We need to nurture the child in us,
not force it to grow up.
We are love, only love.
It is fear that prevents us from
being who we really are.
We are love, only love.

Create Shared Parenting in Divorce Proceedings

As it stands now, shared parenting of 50/50 is not an automatic when a couple gets divorced. If both parents are not being accused of abuse, neglect, etc, then it should be an automatic that they both receive 50/50 time share parenting with their children.

Both parents have equal standing raising children after a separation or divorce.This preserves a strong bond between children and their parents which is critically important to children's emotional, mental, and physical health. Gender equality and a strong presumption of shared parenting embraces every issue separating children from loving fathers and mothers, grandparents, and other relatives.

Our Mission is to Protect Families From The Family Court System Until The Family Court System Protects Families. We ARE NOT affiliated with the ACLU. We use legislation, litigation, education, industry research, the power of the press and checks and balances to fix a system that damages millions of Americans and our children. Matrimonial attorneys use laws created by attorneys for attorneys and instigate conflict and custody battles to transfer divorcing family wealth and children's college funds to themselves. We focus on education and promotion of equalized gender rights, fair and standardized laws and practices nationally in relation to Family and Domestic Relations Law. We will not stand by as 10,000 ABA matrimonial attorneys exploit, extort and destroy 10 Million families and our children.

Support criminalization of custodial parents whom do not honor custody and visitation guidelines set in Family Court.

We The People of the United States of America support criminalization of all custodial parents in divorce and custody cases that voluntarily withhold their children from the non-custodial parent for whatever reason they deem fit.

We The People recognize that father's have rights too and that father's desire to be a part of their children's lives; NOT to be treated like human automated tellers by the family court system.

We The People support a fiduciary accounting of child support payments, to be required of custodial parents, whom receive any state welfare assistance, and/or child support from non-custodial parents.

We The People support the removal of prison from the punishments of which can be applied to non-custodial parents in default of child support.

Father's have rights too!

Tell states to make equal parenting time the standard in all divorce cases where both parents are fit and proper.

In an effort to benefit children of divorce, all states should begin all child custody cases with a 50/50 split in parenting time. We understand that some men and women are unfit to parent, and judges should rule accordingly in the best interest of the children. If both parents are found to be fit and proper an equal parenting time arrangement should be the standard. Research shows that children of divorce benefit greatly with the opportunity to have a fair and equal relationship with both parents. All across our country the future and well being of our children are being put at risk from unfair parenting arrangements handed down from judges in cases that never even go to trial. Thank you for your support.

Petition by Fathers Against Kidnapping

Issues: Civil Rights and Liberties, Family, Human Rights

We petition the Obama Administration to:

Stop the unfairness in courts - We know the federal incentives are the reason for the unfairness. Custody should be 50-50% and each parent supports the children during their time with the children. With 50-50% custody there should be no reason for anyone to pay child support. A child has the right to BOTH PARENTS. And no judge, court or anyone else has the right to say that one parent is better then the other.

We have to give children their rights to have both parents in their life. Parents who abuse their rights and violate court orders should be accountable for their actions.
