Fathers rights being abandoned

Are fathers right slowly starting to be forgotten? Has the court stopped listening to fathers?
With a poll in 2010 the was a vote for Aussie's who think the 50/50 shared custody should be abandoned? it showed that the vote was
Yes with 38.39% with 837 votes
No with 61.61% with 1343 votes

So Australia still supports the decision of 50/50 shared custody.

When fathers rights were founded

Did you know that fathers rights groups began in 1970 with groups such as lone fathers association. I have Links on this blog at the bottom to other organizations that are well known and are also helping out fathers in difficult times.

Now with parties lying in court. How do you think they should be dealt with? There is no point in lying as it just makes the case longer and harder which in the end people will tend to second think what they say or not even believe what they say.

Is there any straight one rule for fathers? No there is not its all over the place. But lets put this forward and try and make it fair on both parties in different circumstances.

Are you a father who is stuck and cant find help. Click on my links as they are directed to pages that have endless information for you.

Petition up date

Hey everyone if you copy and paste this link into your address bar it should take you straight there. Thanks everyone.



As fathers our rights

Well in Australia the term "child custody" has been changed to a better sounding "lives with" or "spends time with". Let Australia's politicians know what the overwhelming majority of Australians want. Sign the petition and state your support for a legislated presumption of 50/50 joint residence (equal parenting) in the event of separation, as a starting point. The link :

Current Number of Signatures: 6049

Australians Overwhelmingly Support Equal Parenting. On average, 80% to 90% of Australian believe that there should be a legislated presumption of 50/50 shared residence, in the event of separation. Its the numbers that show the truth and that more of Australia wants fathers to have up to 50/50 time with there kids. It is also funny that it can take a long time to get into court for a father. First there is mediation which in no case ever fair unless the other party agrees with you and it just seems to be a way to suspend things or hold things off. If people agreed on what they wanted then they wouldn't be there in the first place. Secondly if the father hasn't got the kids at the start and then decides that he wants them for a majority of the time he then has to either try and organise with the mother and be civil and if that doesn't work apply for mediation that can take anywhere from 6 months too 3 months depending on waiting lists. During that time if there is no orders in place at all then the mother can easily say no and the father will not be able to see the kids until they have been to mediation. that way something is written up and can be followed. Even then its not promised until it has been to court and signed and sealed. As drastic measures i had read is that a father had kept his kids after she had told him that it would be the last time he would have any contact with them until it had gone through court. therefore she applied for a recovery order for the children. Little did she no that a quick set of orders were made that the father could see the kids every second weekend and call them every 3rd day. This way he still had time with the kids until it goes to court and he fights for the time that he wants. Smart i do say but it shouldn't be this way. Kids a not pawns in life, they are not money trees, they are not some part of furniture that people can pass off when they don't want them. They are our kids and people just like you and me. I will be posting more stories and my opinion as i read them but please don't forget to sign the petition above. Thanks everyone and stay tuned

The rights of fathers in Australia

Hi every one. Just starting the topics on Fathers rights in Australia. As we all no it does seem just a tad bit unfair. ill share my view. I have two gorgeous girls of my own that i only get for 2 nights a fortnight. No domestic violence, drugs, or anything that deems me unfit. I myself think i should receive more time with my kids so they get to know me properly and that they know they have a dad there. Despite all her spiteful tries and i wish i could blurt it on here so everyone could see just how spite full they can be i cant. For legal reasons i guess. My point is that i think fathers should have just as much right as mothers in certain circumstances. That it shouldn't be one sided and that fathers can provide just as much if not more help to there kids as a mother can. As the days progress ill post up here things i think should change or be made equal.

Any comments would be appreciated.
