I am going for custody of my granddaughter again. My daughter isn't responsible to raise her daughter. My daughter is signing over custody to me. They aren't married. The father is trying his best but he really isn't responsible neither. I have been t

I have been caring for my granddaughter most of her life ever sence she was born. I have had her now for a year straight. I have been doing everything for her I mean everything. I even got her in school and she loves it. I go to court on October 10th for the last hearing. Dad is fighting me. I told him i would not stop him or his family from seeing her. All i want is for emma is a stable home .He has not had much to do with her tell I started this custody battle. I know I am doing the right...

Everyone see it.

My son from four years old on was often left alone while his birth mother trolled the bars. I spent hours with him on the phone calming his fear while he was alone inside a security apartment. My outrage was ignored. A former Nicollet County, MN, Social Services Director named Pat Coyne said there was no harm in a youngster eating his meals at McDonalds. After years of exposing neglect and abuse from the birth mother, my son and I finally had our day in court. Custody changed, the birth...

My son from four years old on was often left alone while his birth mother trolled the bars. I spent hours with him on the phone calming his fear while he was alone inside a security apartment. My outrage was ignored. A former Nicollet County, MN, Social Services Director named Pat Coyne said there was no harm in a youngster eating his meals at McDonalds. After years of exposing neglect and abuse from the birth mother, my son and I finally had our day in court. Custody changed, the birth mother crawled back into the hole she created. He grew into an Eagle Scout, a combat decorated Army Ranger, a loving and caring father with love and nurturing from the family atmosphere his stepmother and I created.

Maybe we should research and ask the children who have lived it what they think and how things should be changed. Adult children who actually lived the 50/50 are best to speak out about reform; they are the only ones who have the whole perspective. No divorce is normal...something went wrong and there is a reason. Most have mental health issues and that is why the divorce and if so, how can one spouse protect the children from harm by the other if they see that parent 50/50? Narcissism...

Narcissism is abuse and divorce really brings this out of the Narcissistic person and they mistreat the children. Would d50/50 be good then? The problem is there are too many lies told by people in court during the divorce and lots of acting. The most abusive person comes off as loving and normal and it is nearly impossible to sort their true nature of anger, power, and hurt. Again, research the children who have lived it and are now adults to reform divorce/parenting laws.

Sixty-percent of Mother's get sole custody. The rest of the time, the dad's probably get 10 - 20% custody. Aren't Mom's ever mentally ill? Aren't mom's ever Narcissistic? Do Moms ever lie to the Courts? Being "mentally ill" in the eyes of your spouse shouldn't be reason to lose custody of your kids. It's like allowing someone to be burned at the stake because the neighbors saw them "making poppets."

Agreed 100% - Even worse in the UK - I could not believe that on separation the best I could get was every other weekend and supposedly half the holidays. Their mother ensured that the half the holidays arrangement was never adhered to! My attempts to even pick up my girls after school on a Wednesday and return them by 8pm was deemed as "too disruptive"! Then 14 months after separation, she stopped me from seeing them altogether.

Agreed 100% - Even worse in the UK - I could not believe that on separation the best I could get was every other weekend and supposedly half the holidays. Their mother ensured that the half the holidays arrangement was never adhered to! My attempts to even pick up my girls after school on a Wednesday and return them by 8pm was deemed as "too disruptive"! Then 14 months after separation, she stopped me from seeing them altogether. It took me 3 months to get the case back to court and during that time I had no contact with them whatsoever. The judge decreed that he would 'allow' me to write to them once a month and send them small gifts at appropriate times. He told their mother to ensure that she encouraged them to respond. I did not ever get a single response. It is now 2145 days since I have seen or heard from them. It is an outrage and I'll add that there is no reason whatsoever for this judgement. I am no risk to them and all I have ever done is love them.

We are demonizing men and destroying Father's roles -- and undermining society. Kids need their dads. Shared custody with two fit parents is in the child's best interest. Every other weekend is not custody --- it's visitation -- and is simply Court Ordered Parental Alienation. The law must be a presumption of 50/50 unless a parent can be proven in a Criminal Court (not civil, because there's no standard of evidence) to be unfit.

Fighting war against terrorists in Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan is a diversion to keep the citizens of the United States distracted about the terrorist psychopaths in the American Legal System.

I have discovered that there is no access to the United States legal system for the middle class and poor of the United States. I came to these courts asking for justice and I left further …injured. When I asked the legislature and the administrative system that is set up to oversee the legal system,...

Fighting war against terrorists in Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan is a diversion to keep the citizens of the United States distracted about the terrorist psychopaths in the American Legal System.

I have discovered that there is no access to the United States legal system for the middle class and poor of the United States. I came to these courts asking for justice and I left further …injured. When I asked the legislature and the administrative system that is set up to oversee the legal system, I was sent a curt response that no laws or ethics had been violated. These administrative personnel have condoned the use of terror in our court system. The administrative personnel and/ or pathology personalities have colluded with the crooks of the system and have become supporters of terror (tools of the psychopath). Our courts have become tools for the wealthy to oppress the poor. There are administrative laws on the books of each state. Although these laws are not available to the public.
