NEED OF CHANGE
Too much power
I understand that there are men who are not acting responsibly and not paying or even trying to pay child support, nor are they being a father to their children. But what about us men and fathers who do the absolute best we can? Should we be penalized just as those who aren't? I think that our justice system here is too much in the favor of a woman, has too much control and is not seeking out TRUE justice. I know that I am not the only father out there in this economy, struggling to get a job, income and take care of his responsibilities. I had a small business and can't collect unemployment or any other financial aid. I am having a hard time getting a job because I did my own business for the last 5-6 years, and because I have not been able to make any child support payments I can go to jail and for a few years? Folks, this just is not fair, I do not feel that men like me have committed any crime whatsoever. I would like others, men and women alike who want a true justice system in this country to start a petition to law makes in this country to take this kind of action out of the hands of a child support office, out of control of a judge and jailers.
Along with that the mother has continually denied the father the right to have his kids visit out of state, has talked in a negative fashion to the children causing great distance between the father and the children. The father has tried on several occasions to have the child support and parenting plan modified through arbitration as outlined in previous decree, but the mother refuses to accept or return calls from the Pierce County Dispute Resolution Center to schedule a date and time to resolve these issues. The father has filed these modifications with the Pierce County Superior Court, only to have the mother refuse to attend the mandated parenting class prior to the case being heard. In fact the mother has done everything she could from the time of separation from the father to interrupt the close relationship the father has with his children. The father meanwhile has tried to communicate and work agreements with the mother on parenting and all issues regarding the children and to be a proper father, but the mother just refuses to cooperate in any form whatsoever with the father.
