Children need both parents to be involved in their lives even when parents don't live together anymore!  Loving parents like "Ray" are being denied their parental rights by the other parent and thier attorney, magistrate and judicial system!

Family courts routinely curtail the parenting rights of fit parents by choosing one custodial parent and one “visitor.” This must stop. The Supreme Court of the United States has found that “the interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children…is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court.” (Troxel v. Granville, 2000) This precept was first declared by the Court over 75 years ago, but has been routinely ignored in custody determinations.

 Half of all American children are growing up without a father in the home because their parents are divorced or never married. Such children suffer much higher rates of child abuse, educational underachievement, depression or alienation, violence or gang activity, poor health, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and dysfunctional future family relationships.

Society blames “irresponsible fathers” for these problems. This is a serious oversimplification. When parents are estranged, misguided laws, judicial traditions, and government policies drive many loving fathers (and some mothers) out of their children’s lives, with dismaying results for children.

Current Florida cases as well as NationWide are out of control with corruption! Placing a "yoke" of bondage on another human being is SLAVERY. We demand answers and we demand changes in the family court system.  This is a call to action!

Support Ray's rights along with all other FIT parents as well as the children's rights to free access to BOTH parents EQUALLY!! That is what is the CHILD's best interests!  Parents like Ray, who are loving, caring, God-fearing, hard working individuals don't deserve to be punished as they are!  The attorneys need to prove why Ray should NOT have 50% equal time share but they placed the burden on him to prove it!  This crime of parental alienation at the hands of our court system goes on every day...some raise their voices, others do not feel empowered to do so.  Help us put a stop to this!
