Through the efforts of various highly financed Fathers Rights groups affiliated with secret judicial associations of family, conciliation, mediation and juvenile courts, who are united under the guise of promoting non-litigious domestic dispute resolution along with other smoke-screen covers such as responsible fatherhood, millions of middle and lower income citizens have been deliberately cheated of their legal right to due process. The efforts of "well-oiled" fathers rights activists who tap into "deep pockets (in their own words) of federal and private grants while traveling North America, Europe and Australia promoting pedophile friendly syndromes such as Parental Alienation Syndrome, have effectively silenced women and children's outcries of brutality, rape and incest to a vast array of professionals in the divorce industry.

In their lust for power and control, these bad dads have reaped a plethora of praise and manna from federal heaven through DHHS (Access/Visitation programs, DOJ (Arbitration/Mediation) programs, Responsible Fatherhood Programs, Co-Parenting Programs, and other mislabeled Court-Based federally sponsored “Family Services.”

Considering that the recipients of the bulk of the money goes to pay well-off guys who spend most of their time recruiting new members for their custody switching scheme and lobbying legislators for presumptive joint custody (the demise of child support enforcement for all time) and easing restrictions on incest and family violence -- this sinister "snake oil" has more to do with power, lust and money than their insincere pretense for the best interests of children.

Well I haven't yet experienced any such thing but if you have some problem regarding custody then I would suggest that you contact Ms. Simon who is a family attorney practicing in Florida since 2000. She is handling various cases like divorce, custody, parenting plan etc.

I have good news! A new GAL was assigned to look into my sons fathers behavior. She is on the ball, and my son is safe. Mom's, dont give up! The tears, loss of sleep and money down the drain; our babies are worth all of that and more.

First of all 1/3 time is not much time. It should be 50-50 ... because child needs father and mother. If father is not taking care of the child then that a different story. Regarding father getting upper hand is concerned.. i think its just a cycle.. first father had upper hand then mothers had it for last 10-15 years and not fathers have it . It also depends on how society has changed... courts keep account of how many mothers tried to take advantage of fathers and fathers taking advantage of mothers in custody case. There is historical data to prove that. Court now thinks that fathers are ready to take responsibility and should be given a fair chance . http://mychildcustodycase.com

Although each stage of a divorce can involve conflict, custody disputes have the potential to become the most emotional. However, in all states, the best interests of the child always take precedence over the wishes of the parents. Knowing the circumstances under which a judge may be more inclined to award you with greater parental rights will help you best prepare for your custody case.


-Custody Basics

While the terminology can vary from state to state, custody is typically divided into two components: physical and legal custody. Physical custody pertains to where the child stays overnight, while legal custody refers to the authority to make major decisions regarding the child's upbringing, including school choice and religious affiliation. A judge can order that the parents share either type of custody or award either or both types of custody solely to one parent.

-Best Interests Standard

All custody decisions must promote the best interests of the child. This standard necessarily looks to which parent can not only meet the needs of the child, but also whether that parent can foster a positive and ongoing relationship with the other parent. For that reason, if you are cooperative but your spouse refuses to speak to you, the court may be less inclined to award him greater parenting rights according to West Palm Divorce Lawyer. This is particularly true with regards to establishing legal custody, where the ability to work together to make decisions is an important consideration.

-Additional Factors

Minimizing disruption in the child's life is an integral part of determining physical custody. For that reason, a judge may be persuaded to award you with more overnights if you live closer to the child's school and extracurricular activities. Further, some states will take into consideration the amount of involvement each parent has had in the child's life, as well as the child's personal preference if he is of suitable age.

-Safety Concerns

A court must ensure that a child's needs are being met and that she has a safe home environment. To that end, evidence of past physical or sexual abuse by one parent can be a red flag to the court that it might not be in the child's best interest to stay overnight with that parent. In addition, if you can demonstrate that the other parent has a history of poor decision-making, such as would be the case with continuous drug addiction, the court may conclude that it should award you sole legal custody.
