I Just Want To Be A Good Dad

November 16, 2010

My daughter is now 9 and despite a long court case, nothing much has changed. For 12 days every fortnight I am a hard-working, broken-hearted person and I cannot find anything in the UK to make me happy.

For the two days every fortnight that I get to spend with my daughter, I am a happy, proud and confident person, a total contrast to my days without her.

Yesterday I gazed out the window watching fireworks and was really missing my angel but I cannot call her, she doesn’t call me and knowing she is only a mile away hurts like hell.

My ex has hurt me for years on end and she seems relentless in erasing me from our daughter’s life and I am reduced to nothing more than a broken-hearted dad that battles on for justice in the courts, so that someone will make my ex encourage our daughter to see me as an equal parent and let me be a part of her life, good times and bad.

I have alot to give and alot to teach her but the only people she gets to see is her mothers’ friends and family, not a true representation of her whole family, which to me is abuse and falls under the title of parental alienation. This is the act of one parent trying to stop meaningful contact with the other parent.

It is time to stand up and make family laws fairer to stop child abuse being carried out and to promote shared parenting in the family courts so broken Britain can start to be repaired for the good of our communities.


How Can This Woman Get Away With Child Abuse And Be Funded By Taxpayers Money?

October 28, 2010

After three years in court it would not surprise me if the cost to taxpayers and the government so far is at least £100,000 but where has it got me, in terms of contact with my daughter and stopping the abuse being carried out by her mother?

The sad answer is not far!

Nobody disputes the fact that I am a good father, even the mother doesn’t deny this, but being a good dad doesn’t mean a thing in the eyes of the law. If a mother decides that she doesn’t want you to see your child, the law is not on a fathers’ side in the UK and it is a sad tale of despair and pain for thousands of dads, leaving selfish, abusive women to continue their abuse on the innocent children caught up in this senseless, selfish battle.

I pay for my court fees and legal advice but my ex is funded by legal aid, which is disgusting considering the fact that shje has no grounds for denying me the shared parenting I am asking for. What kind of country, system or legal system would finance one parent from alienating the other parent from their own blood child?

It truly is unbelievable in a country like Great Britain, that you c an be separated from your children, alienated by the children’s mother and then she gets finance to fight you for years through the courts, to abuse a child. What kind of sick, cruel legal system would allow this to happen?

The answer as always is money! Solicitors intentionally inflame situations and advise the mother in a course which is nowhere near in the best interests of the children and then you have the judges who have the power, but lack the common sense and guts to stop these evil mothers and letting the dads see their own children in a equal and just way.

There is a growing movement in the UK that is growing increasingly frustrated and impatient and is starting to take matters into their own hands, to stop this cruel, state-sanctioned child abuse happening to our innocent children. Parental alienation is acknowledged and punished in other countries, so why can’t we act now and stamp it out here?


President of the Family Division Says Courts Are Not Best Suited To Resolving Conflicts Over Child Contact

October 1, 2010
  • President of the Family Division says that the traditional adversarial system in British courts compels separated parents to argue against each other when trying to arrange contact with their children. Children are often used as ‘the battlefield and the ammunition’ after separation

The President of the Family Division says that children are often used as ‘the battlefield and the ammunition’ after divorce or separation by parents wishing to punish each other for the breakdown of their relationship.

Lord Justice Wall, the senior judge in the family courts, was speaking at the annual gathering of Families Need Fathers which has branches all over the UK. He stated “often, the parties are fighting over again the battles of the relationship, and the children are both the battlefield the ammunition.”

Against this background the adversarial system of the courts doesn’t help. “One party wants a divorce, or residence or contact: the other opposes it. One party makes an application, the other resists. The adversarial system is engrained.”

Lord Justice Wall described break-ups as ‘a serious failure in parenting’ that requires an extremely responsible and child-centred approach to prevent harm to the children. “Parents, in my experience, often find it difficult to understand that children both love and have a loyalty to both parents. There is nothing worse, for most children, than for their parents to denigrate each other.  If a child’s mother makes it clear to the child that his or her father is worthless – and vice versa – the child’s sense of self-worth can be irredeemably damaged.”
With 136,000 couples divorcing annually and, each year, up to 20,000 parents going to court to determine disputes over seeing their children, this issue affects a large proportion of the population and its effects will be felt among generations of children who have suffered following separation.

Many children lose touch with one of their parents in these circumstances and are, consequently, likely to suffer in many respects over the course of their lives. Families Need Fathers is chiefly concerned with the problems of maintaining a child’s relationship with both parents during and after family breakdown. They offer information, advice and support services for parents who could otherwise spend years without achieving a positive outcome for the children. One of their key resources of is a 50 strong network of local branch meetings where anyone can get free help and support from separated parents who have themselves struggled to see their children.

How Loving My Daughter So Much Has Cost Me So Much Pain

January 19, 2010

I have adored my daughter since she was born and it has undoubtedly made me a better person in general.

When I used to drop my daughter back to her mother, she would cry and want to stay with me. Not because her mother was a bad mother, because she wasn’t, but I believe it was because I idolised her and because we had so much fun together.

Somehow, for the past 2+ years I have been demonised and her mother, in her eyes is a saint.


Fathers And Childrens Rights

January 15, 2010

Why should any legal system deny a father the right to spend equal time with his son or daughter?

With the growing problems in society today it is clear that fathers rights and childrens rights are being overlooked, which is destroying the family values that childen require, to grow up with a balanced opinion and stability.


Parental Alienation is destroying our children’s future

January 8, 2010

Christmas and Snowy conditions are prime time for Dads to have great fun with their children and provide a stable environment for the children.

Unfortunately, due to parental alienation or PAS this does not happen. When parents allow their own feelings to cloud what is right or wrong for their children, it can become child abuse, which can later affect the emotional stability of the child.


Parental Alienation And The Damage Caused To Children

October 27, 2009

Parental alienation has been widely accepted as a term used to explain the brainwashing or conditioning of children by a resident parent (usually the mother) whereby they persuade the child against contact with the non-resident parent or persuade the child not to be enthusiastic about contact with the non-resident parent or their new partner.

Being on the receiving end of parental alienation is not pleasant thing. Since the birth of my daughter I have had to battle with the mother to be considered as an equal parent, but eight years on I am still battling to be acknowledged as a valued parent.

My ex-partner (mother of our daughter) never had a proper father as he split from his wife and never kept in proper contact and I personally think that this has a had a knock-on effect, because my daughter’s mother seems to think that I am not an important part of our child’s life and this is very saddening for both me and our daughter.

Too often I witness parents that do not seem to care enough about their children and it saddens me to know that I am willing to give my heart and soul to make my daughter’s life more meani9ngful, yet I am constantly battling with her mother just to be treated as an equal.
