Army Father denied rights
I am a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army and I have been paying child support for the past 15 years. I am not behind in my payments and I have insurance that covers my son (which his mother will not use I might add) I have taken my sons mother and step dad to court to get visitation of my son and won but when I called to come pick my son up his step dad answered the phone and told me I will not see my son. The next day I got a call from the Sheriff of the town that they live in saying that I have a warrant for my arrest for communicating a threat. I asked the officer who I threatened and he told me it was my sons step father. I live in Missouri and they live in Arkansas and other than our brief conversation on the phone I haven't talk to them. To make a long story short. I deployed a month later without seeing my son. I am so frustrated with the system at this point that I want to do something. I have bought my son a cell phone and his mom used it up and then I still didn't get to talk to him.
I don't know what to do? What is a father to do? I just want my son to know that I am here. I am not staying away from him because I want to. I am working with my lawyer again (which costs me more money) to fight the warrant and press charges on them for filing a false report. I see where that goes.
I am willing to join or start a group that will fight against unfair practices of the child support system.
