In the 1980s laws were created to protect women and children from abusive relationships. Now, the laws that were created to protect women and children from abuse, have morphed into a giant loophole to allow fraudulent abuse. These laws made no provisions for men/fathers who have been victimized by domestic violence. Domestic violence against men has been ignored and has radically increased. This "loophole" has allowed vengeful women to use protective orders to falsely report their children's fathers, accusing them of domestic violence and/or allegations of sexual abuse.
Every day men who work and sacrifice for their children are experiencing one of the most tragic and heartbreaking injustices of our time. The mother's hatred for the child's father and her need to be in control becomes far more powerful than the love for her children. This hatred is spiraling out of control in our family courts and thousands of men are being charged with false allegations of abuse and losing their children. Women are hell-bent on making sure the fathers of their children never have a relationship with their kids. This in itself is child abuse of the most tragic form. Even more tragically, the court system is helping this to happen and soon we will be a nation of fatherless children.
Closing off avenues of love and support to a child from their father and his family is cruel and selfish. Manipulating the child with material things as a means of alienation, using the child as a pawn in a selfish game of revenge, and stealing a child's soul is committing cruelty and abuse. One parent has no reason they can justify for ending a child's contact with the other parent. Anyone who aids and abets commits child abuse as well.
So tell me, who defines what is in "the best interest of the child?" Child Protective Services, who fail thousands of children by separating them from fathers who wanted nothing more than to be fathers and share parental rights? Family court judges, who almost always side with the mother? The lawyers, whose hands are tied by antiquated laws that don't protect fathers/men? Vindictive mother's who can file false domestic violence orders, one after the other (and their lawyers who know this, yet they humor them because "that is their right.")? Please tell me, who really has the best interest of the children in mind?
