The family court system of these United States is a hot
The wheels keep spinning and the money keeps flying as the courts and lawyers come out the only winners in Divorce and Child Custody Gone Wild.
One man, The Angry Dad, chronicles his run-through-hell as he battles to share his children with his ex-wife. He names names and takes no prisoners when calling out the guilty - from the judge, to the lawyers, and even the social worker assigned to prove how abusive he is for doing things like.... like.... not buying the children a dog.
Allegations against The Angry Dad include his refusal to buy the kids a dog (who's gonna take care of the mutt between visits????) and his use of an alarm clock to wake the kids in the morning (well what the heck do YOU use to get up? Does the Pope come and whisper in your ear?)
Oh yeah. There was also a complaint about a recent grocery store visit. Apparently, the kids wanted a snack that he didn't buy. After itemizing his actual purchases that day, he had a healthy balance of nutrition (e.g. vegetables) and snack food.
In other words, lawyers and court appointed bots are making a killing on trying to take this guys kids. The money. Oh God the money he's spent. And the jaw-dropping pettiness of the allegations. Unreal. Go read for yourself.
I know. I know. You can't believe everything you read on the internet. But I'll say this:
- I've been following this man's story for a long time.
- He's quite liberal with names and locations which can be validated.
- And even if not a word is true, his story mirrors the truckloads of similar testimonies from frustrated fathers who want amicable divorces and subsequent shared parenting.
My sweetheart is on the list of fathers wounded by the family court system. I want to give a shot out to Just Another Disenfranchised Father, who authors the first blog that I ever read about this issue. I must flip a quick nod to Glen Sacks. Glen is fortunate enough to have his wife and children close by, but he's a tireless advocate for the men who don't.
Have you been on either side of a family court nightmare? Looking back, did the system help fuel the contention?
