Fisher: Fathers Eschew their Responsibilities

Fisher: Fathers Eschew their Responsibilities

February 24, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization We at the National Parents Organization try hard every day to bring sanity to family courts and laws.  Countless other organizations and individuals do too.  It’s a long, hard slog.  The healthy fight to keep fathers in children’s lives is a necessary one.  Too many forces in this society militate against fathers and the result is widespread social dysfunction.  Kids raised by two parents are, on…

Equal Parenting: A Win-Win-Win

Equal Parenting: A Win-Win-Win

February 21, 2019  While it’s not surprising that most children of divorce say they want to spend quality time with both parents, studies show that the majority of parents want an equitable custody arrangement, too. In spite of this, just one state in the nation, Kentucky, has a true shared parenting law in place, and that took effect less than a year ago. Family court practices vary from state to state, and too many remain bound to outdated policy and…

Arkansas Bill Seeks Greater Equality for Unmarried Fathers

Arkansas Bill Seeks Greater Equality for Unmarried Fathers

February 21, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization In the U.S., some 41% of children are born to single mothers.  Our custody laws assume all children to have been born to a married couple.  That means stark inequalities between unmarried mothers and fathers.  In every state, mothers have parental rights solely by virtue of their biological connection to their children.  Fathers have a biological connection too, but must spend significant sums of money and…

Nebraska Courts Get One Right

Nebraska Courts Get One Right

February 20, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Sometimes courts get it right – even Nebraska courts. In the case of Alberts vs. Alberts, both the trial and the appellate court made the right decisions.  Thomas and Joan Alberts were married in 1997, had two children, separated in 2011 and Joan filed for divorce in 2013.  There were multiple issues at trial about marital property and of course about child custody.  Predictably, the trial…

Parents’ Constitutional Right to Legal Representation When CPS Takes Their Kids Routinely Violated Leading to Greater Child Kidnappings by the State

Parents’ Constitutional Right to Legal Representation When CPS Takes Their Kids Routinely Violated Leading to Greater Child Kidnappings by the State

by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News Since we have started covering the medical kidnapping issue here at Health Impact News, we have frequently pointed out that when child protection social services (CPS) removes a child from their home, parents have fewer legal rights than rapists, murders, or terrorists. When someone is arrested on suspicion of murder, rape, assault, robbery, and other serious crimes that are a threat to the public, those arrested enter into the criminal justice system, and…

Scottish First Minister Derided for Her Claim of ‘First Mammy’

Scottish First Minister Derided for Her Claim of ‘First Mammy’

February 18, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization When you’re the First Minister of Scotland, as Nicola Sturgeon is, apparently you think you can peddle patent nonsense to the people you supposedly represent and they’ll buy it, no questions asked (Express, 2/17/19).  That’s what Sturgeon did not long ago, but it turned out that the Great Unwashed were more skeptical than she’d planned on. Sturgeon pronounced herself the country’s “first mammy,” and told the children in…

February 17, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Signs and wonders.  Carlos and Jemima Guimaraes have filed suit against Dr. Chris Brann.  Really, they have.  I’m not making this up(Houston Chronicle, 2/14/19). A wealthy Brazilian couple, sentenced to federal prison for helping kidnap their grandson, sued their ex-son-in-law this week, alleging that he defrauded the court in the trial that led to their convictions. Carlos and Jemima are, as I’ve written numerous times, the parents…

Married Couples Happier, More Committed to Each Other than Cohabiting Ones

Married Couples Happier, More Committed to Each Other than Cohabiting Ones

February 15, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization When I was a young man, the “Counterculture” informed me and all of my cohorts, both male and female, that marriage was “just a piece of paper” and that no such piece of paper could improve one’s relationship with the opposite sex.  Marriage was an absurd irrelevancy, the product of an uncomprehending and pitifully unhip Past.  Like so much about the Counterculture, that proved to be…
