These planners and politicians discovered they might gain political prominence using the advancment of this new bad guy. The public was allowed to vent, the federal propaganda drums were beaten wildly and the Deadbeat Dads unfortunately became the new target of these old welfare system frustrations.
It worked great. The government looked better, and a whole new highly divisive class of political constituents was born...and a new underclass, Deadbeat Dads. It seems that the divorced moms were on a roll! Their ex husbands, i.e., their children's fathers were being called names, maligned publicly, harassed at work, hunted down by over zealous bureaucrats and witless collection thugs, their photos, like mug shots, were even printed on milk cartons, many good men were even fired fromr jobs, (like this really helps).
The kind of unwitting, yet vicious, mob hysteria that was unleashed sent good men (many veterans-thanks for the fine service to our country, friend), good men with no real choice and impossible obligations were forced into a desperate underclass, others into hiding as societal outcasts. Still others essentially became unnecessary but petty outlaws while some literally fled the country and went into permanent exile.
This solved nothing, and created a monster as arrearages started to mount. 16 million non-custodial fathers were faced with arrest to be delinquent on supporting your children payments. Nationwide, uncollected supporting your children payments amounts to approximately billion annually. In 2007 California total arrearages were estimated to be approximately billion. The majority of these underclass parents would much would rather be able to pay their obligations and get current. However, when one is unable to afford legal assistance and the social groups side with the women because that's the source of the cash is, it appears impossible to fix these wrongs. Unless these wrongs are corrected with this group, Fathers rights is dead!
Fast forward a few years,. The nation's economics really are a disaster. Foreclosure fraud is epidemic - you will find millions without homes. Unemployment is running as high as 23% when using adjusted numbers that really represent reality. The dollar is collapsing. Home loans are dead.
Now, for that great news! Dads are winning about half of the battles when they decide to insist upon their fathers rights. The family law Courts are awarding Fathers with child custody, enforcing visitation rights, lowering child support and other important issues. These Court changes are because of the fathers rights groups, non custodial fathers who fought the system and some excellent informative books on fathers rights.
The really big news is the fact that there are now at least ten legal bases for reducing and/or eliminating child support arrears, and, all it typically requires is some negotiating and specialized information. Once you have the more information you need, you might be able to proceed yourself without an attorney because of the simple nature of those steps. This powerful information is allowing some Dads to receive payment from the ex. Get the monkey off your back, eliminate your arrears as soon as possible. Remember, Dads are winning.
Divorce is really a fact of life. Some divorces are pretty straight forward and amicable yet others are not. Complications always ensue when the divorcing couple has children. Soon, mothers rights and fathers rights custody cases are filed in court.
