"We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was 'legal' and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was 'illegal.'"
- Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963

"We can have justice whenever those who have not been injured by injustice are as outraged by it as those who have been." -Solon 594 B.C.


The constitution says essentially you would have to be totally unfit as a parent to be denied your children. Fifty-fifty responsibility is the only thing that makes sense as a starting point for separating couples.  This is called "shared parenting" and received 85% support from voters in Massachusetts in a 2004 non-binding referendum.  But too many judges, lawyers, GALs and others are making too much money for this system to change easily.  The courts ignore this law every day in almost every case, blindly awarding full custody to mothers and "visitation" to fathers as standard operating procedure due to long-term tradition and sexual bias that is not only obsolete but is also illegal by federal AND state laws.

Follow the money - This makes for great legal battles and LOTS of money for lawyers - over $250 Billion each year is involved.  This practice IS ILLEGAL, IMMORAL and IRREPARABLY DAMAGING AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF OUR CHILDREN EVERY DAY ALL ACROSS THE U.S.  This practice MUST stop with equal parenting laws forcing the default to be what is actually already guaranteed by our constitution! Yet because judges are accountable to no one, and break these higher laws every day with immunity it has continued for decades.  If a real jury saw these rulings they would be disgusted at the most common results and slipshod way these decisions are made.

Judges are "legislating from the bench", effectively doing whatever they want in spite of the current laws of the land created by the people in the constitution and federal courts. God help the fathers that get in front of judge who had strict fathers in the 1950s and 1960s. I have even seen a judge have an adolescent outburst just because I said "objection your honor" to a hearsay comment by the opposite side - sending over the bailiff to intimidate and control and protect his little personal dynasty from any sort of challenge. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The states need to get out of the parenting business and our personal affairs!

There are five major issues this web site provides information on which collectively make the injustices discussed below not only possible, but the most common result today.  All could probably be solved by proper shared parenting legislation which would take the huge money out of the equation for the divorce and domestic violence industry and created better results for our children and fathers:

  1. Shared Parenting and Custody  (your constitutional right, legislation, fatherlessness driven by money, government and the courts,  class action law suits, New York Times article on this)
  2. Child Support (or more appropriately child extortion, another story, the average overpayment, government corruption caused by illegal child support kickbacks from federal funds)
  3. Restraining Order (RO) Abuse (False claims of domestic violence and fear) - Most attorneys agree (in private) that most (Some say up to 95%) of ROs are false and baseless, but never the less they are often given out like candy on any woman's utterance of the word "fear". Judges are afraid NOT to grant them but violate their oath of office when they do because of fear of media etc.  This takes away virtually all of the man's constitutional rights to his children and property instantly and without any due process, proof or even accusation of wrongdoing.  A highly profitable industry has built itself around this called the "Domestic Violence" industry. There is clearly a better answer than this for real domestic violence with all the protections of the constitution extended to both parties.  To read what a brave lawyer campaigning against this horrible abuse of men's rights has to say click here.
  4. Education About the Divorce Courts - The process and ways to fight for your rights. These are "kangaroo courts" that ignore required procedures, the constitution and federal Supreme Court rulings almost every day, in almost every case. Yes it is hard to believe, but true. I was brought up believing judges were fair and unbiased. Nothing could be further from the truth in these local and family courts they are drive by the self interest of the people there, not by the real law.
  5. The Constitutional Rights of ALL Parents, The 14th Amendment, Equal Rights and other laws that are ignored daily to deny fathers their rights and generate more money for lawyers, (trust your attorney?). The constitution and Supreme Court ruling are very clear on these matter by the family courts ignore this higher law - One judge said when discussing an appeal "I overrule the SJC every day". This is illegal and that judge should be removed fro the bench.
  6. Judicial Abuse - "Follow the money" and power.  Article #1, #2, #3 and #4, Fighting on Their Level. I have been told local district judges are in the habit of saying "I overrule the appellate and superior courts every day." This is a statement of ego and doing this is unlawful. Judges are required to find the facts and apply the law, not make it according to their own opinions. This statement says they know the law and do something else, which is a breach of their oath and illegal. I have seen the law broken almost every time I am in court by judges and lawyers who play fast and loose and hope you don't know enough to know the difference.

I have studied this for a long time now and continue to be shocked at the bias, corruption and stereotypes that drive the decisions in family courts today.  The stories are unbelievable, but true. Look at the Bridgett Marks Case.  These courts are kangaroo courts; as they have no jury and therefore no real "due process" guaranteed by the constitution and designed to prevent bad laws and powerful self-interested groups from taking over.  This has happened as a result of strong feminist groups with huge political power with no counterbalancing men's rights groups.  Feminists are demonizing dads as "deadbeats" and "abusers" and because the people in the system are getting rich via the system it grows nonstop.  Anecdotes make interesting news and sell newspapers and TV ads, yet the stories about women who do wrong are often downplayed or ignored. Interestingly it is actual fact that women are just as likely to be physically abusive to both husbands and children! 

Shocking? Yes because all we hear in the media are the opposite stories about "deadbeat dads" and "abusive men".  We all have sympathy for single moms - I know I did until I found out the truth.  Single dads are the victims of this process 95% of the time.  These stories are publicized by a massive public relations machine funded by women's rights groups and federal funds they have procured through grants, lobbying, media and political clout by exaggerating their membership (some say by a factor of 10) and the scope of this problem. These people want an unfair advantage, not equal rights, for women alone.  There is no balance to support men's rights - men have effectively been swept under the rug by one sided lobbying and women's groups gone wild. The laws have been changes to tae the worst case scenario (real domestic violence) and turn that against all men, even those NOT accused of anything.

The pendulum has now swung way too far and men must act.  Studies which prove the opposite is true are "politically incorrect" and dangerous for politicians who fear the wrath of women's rights groups - so they are swept under the carpet.  It is also a fact that mothers verbally degrade the fathers in front of the children four times more often than fathers do.   Many of these statistics can be found in the WONDERFUL book "Father and Child Reunion" that I recommend to all.

The stories you find on this web site will amaze and shock you, and are often hard to believe because they are so un-American and sexist. Most of us were brought up believing that judges were fair and unbiased. You took the required U.S. history course in high school and learned about the Revolutionary War, the three government branches and the civil war.  Well history is repeating itself and a tyranny (literally) has returned as our forefathers expected.  Unfortunately the system our forefathers designed, specifically to break away from a tyranny with great forethought, and even genius, has been circumvented by these courts completely.  This system requires a jury trail to prevent abuses by judges and special interests who create bad laws.

The $250 Billion divorce industry is self-serving and encourages as much battling as possible to maximize legal fees and child support payments because the bigger these get the richer they get. They do not want shared parenting because all the custody battles, restraining orders and big legal fees that result would just go away.  The federal government gives states HUGE incentives to grow their child support collections with HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS in bonuses (kickbacks), which go directly back to the courts.  Some claim these go directly into judges retirement funds.  Either way it is a noble cause (proper support for children) bastardized by overcompensation and worst case anecdotes getting huge media coverage and creating a misinformed public. We all know dads have changed a lot in the last 50 years and participate in raising their children much more.  The studies are in that without this influence children do MUCH worse, and in fact custodial dads are more often producing better results than custodial moms.

Little UNIFIED fighting back from fathers has allowed this industry to grow into a monster where only lawyers, judges and bureaucrats win.  Men are not only emasculated in this process by making them look crazy just for fighting for their rights to participate with their children, but they are financially and emotional destroyed.  Divorce is even the #3 reason for bankruptcy because fathers are forced to pay unfair child support amounts that are really a form of slavery and do not go to the child, but the ex-wife.  Only a massive effort by this class of people being discriminated against (non-custodial fathers) will change this.  Currently there are class action suits happening in at least 46 of the 50 states. There are hundreds of groups formed to help, but little coordination of resources, finances and membership to create the critical mass needed to force real change soon. We need unity!

This current family and probate court system is actually CAUSING the "deadbeat dad" syndrome by making men immediately indigent with unreasonable financial support orders. This industry gets a "piece of the action" indirectly through federal kickbacks of BILLIONS of Dollars.  Hundreds of millions of dollars to Massachusetts alone.  I myself was ordered to pay 280% of my current income for the benefit of my wife so she could live in the home I built 8 years before I even met her. I even had prenuptial agreement to prevent this home hijacking, but it has yet to do me any good now 9 months into my divorce! Why? Only because she was willing to say the word "fear" in front of a judge in a 3 minute hearing to get a restraining order issued. These are given out like candy with not even the requirement of any incident or proof. In my case not even the accusation that anything ever happened that would meet the legal requirement to issue such a draconian order that effectively took away all my rights with the stroke of a pen.

Most states now force child support payments that push fathers into poverty immediately and make them unable to support themselves. Massachusetts has the highest Child support payments of all 50 states - In other words 49 other states think Massachusetts guidelines are too high.  In Massachusetts anyone not earning over $70,000/year can not possible afford to even live alone in a small apartment because 40% of their after tax earnings go to child support and 30% go to taxes - How can someone live on 30% of their past income?  In addition the custodial parent (read wife) will get tall the tax benefits and can make $20,000 without any change in this child support (read alimony).  These payments often come to over five times the cost of raising a child (sometimes 10X or more), when fathers should be paying only 50%! So fathers are often paying 10X what is fair and reasonable!! This is really just alimony in disguise in a society where most non-divorced parents work. Divorced mothers with children in school should be required to work to support themselves too. The states have effectively created a welfare system for divorced mothers funded by fathers.  The disparity creates women living high on the hog without working much at all and indigent men who are working hard and often thrown in jail because they can not keep up with the ordered payments, or just lose a job.

New Hampshire Report On Child Support and Custody

The revolution in these courts is coming via a massive grass roots effort to tear down the current system and have "Shared Parenting" with equal rights and responsibilities for both fathers and mothers. This will take the MONEY MOTIVATION of lawyers and courts out of the system and be much better for children and families.  We need your support - so learn more and participate. Change will require volunteers, activism, money and time.

Understanding the root problem - from the book Suffering Patriarchy

Federal Incentives for Fatherlessness

Strangely, nobody has related this national American tragedy with the advent of second and third wave Radical Feminism.  It is as if everyone recognizes there is a hole in the bottom of the ship of America, yet keep looking up and blaming the sails for the ship sinking.

Matriarchy has usurped the sovereign authority and moral leadership of the father within his own home,  through the establishment and maintenance of several sophistries. 

The Minority Feminist Propaganda Machine Often Exaggerates Actual Government Statistics
by a Factor of 100, or even more!
1. The children as starving and in poverty.
(Truth: Divorce causes unneeded economic hardship on both parties, especially due to lawyers stirring up the pot to get expensive legal battles going and separate the parties as much as possible to avoid resolution)
2. Children as being beaten and abused.
3. The wife as being beaten and abused.
(Truth: 40.8% were maltreated by mom alone.  18.8% were maltreated by their father alone)
4. The father/male as a wife beater/abuser/rapist.
  (Truth only 0.5% of household have real domestic violence)
5. Run-away or abandoning father.
  (Truth: NOT)
6. Wife and children as being poor.
  (TRUTH: Child support is 40% of dads income after taxes, tax free to mom who can earn all she wants separately)
7. The mutilated beggar syndrome—wife and children always need help.
8. Sainted mother postulate—mothers can do no wrong.
(Truth: Women are 24 times more likely to KILL their children than their fathers)
9. The ‘EQUALITY’ Card.
(Truth: The system is enormously prejudice against men and enforces all the laws against them without due process or fairness and does NOT enforce most laws and violations against women)
10.Mothers are the supreme parent and must stay with children at all costs over the athers rights.
(Truth: Children do best with both parents and better in single dad homes than single mom homes!)

Child maltreatment 2003.  US Dept of Health and Human Services.. Children's Bureau. 

Page 24.  "More than 80% (83.9%) of victims abused by at least one parent.  40.8% were maltreated by mom alone.  18.8% were maltreated by their father alone, 16.9% were maltreated by both parents.  Non parental perpetrators 13.4%.  About 48% were boys and 51% were girls.

The vast majority of dads want to support their child and work their butts of to pay sometimes impossible child support orders that result in jail time if they even just lose their job.

Thoreau wrote: "Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience, then? I think we should be men first and subjects afterwards. It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume, is to do at any time what I think right".

 In a similar vein American philosopher Robert Paul Wolff wrote:

The defining mark of the state is authority, the right to rule. The primary obligation of man is autonomy, the refusal to be ruled.  It would  seem, then, that there can be  no resolution of the conflict between the autonomy of the individual and the punitive authority of the state. Insofar as a man fulfills his obligation to make himself the author of his decisions, he will resist the state's claim to have authority over him.

In the court system,  you take a shot at something.  If its wrong, it is the job of the other side to show or prove this is wrong.  Otherwise it is TRUE.    Anything NOT denied is considered true by the court, TRUE in the eyes of the judge and law you must rebut everything or judges will use these lies against you to do what they want. 

There is a generally accepted rule of human conduct which holds that a person will usually try to repel an imputation or claim that has no foundation in fact. An unavoidable corollary of this rule, often expressed in the maxim "Qui tacet consentire videtur," [FN47] serves as the basis for the generally recognized principle that, subject to various qualifications, a person's silence may be construed for evidentiary purposes as a tacit admission of the facts stated where a statement is made in his presence in regard to facts affecting his rights, and he makes no reply. [FN48] Evidence of such silence is most commonly admitted in accident litigation where a party fails to respond to an accusation of fault, or to some other statement regarding the circumstances of the accident, made in his presence. [FN49]


Believe it or not you will learn about the "SHE SAID" Standard
Anything SHE says is Considered TRUE.
Anything HE said is questioned and must be proven.
This "She said" standard is how these restraining order hearings work.
It is generally impossible to prove you did NOT do something - so this is effectively guilty until proven innocent when you can't proven innocence.

This web site is an act of free speech under the First Amendment. This right is protected and can not be limited in any way by states, as any limitation on constitutional rights by states is illegal and unenforceable as per many supreme court cases and the one below. The judicial system is trying to intimidate people into not letting this corruption get out. This can not last. Those regularly breaking the law must leave, reform or go to jail.
Note that state laws vary and some advice you see here may not be the same for your state, however, no state has a right to take away constitutional rights and any law that does (and there are many) is unlawful, including your right to be a parent!
"In other words, the State may not, consistently with the spirit of the First Amendment, contract the spectrum of available knowledge. The right of freedom of speech and press includes not only the right to utter or to print, but the right to distribute, the right to receive, the right to read (Martin v. City of Struthers, 319 U.S. 141, 143, 63 S.Ct. 862, 863, 87 L.Ed. 1313) and freedom of inquiry, freedom of thought, and freedom to teach (see Wieman v. Updegraff, 344 U.S. 183, 195, 73 S.Ct. 215, 220, 97 L.Ed. 216)--indeed the freedom of the entire university community."

All truth passes through three stages.
             First, it is ridiculed.
             Second, it is violently opposed.
             Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
                          ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER (1788-1860)

"As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children,
the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty
and almost any deprivation.
