Changing Custody Laws for Better Balance
The day of bias towards mothers in custody arrangements needs to come to an end. The term "deadbeat dad" has always existed but now it's time to stop "deadbeat moms". Now that rights are supposed to be more equal and mothers are working more than ever, there needs to be more equality in the home. Mother's used to stay at home and care for the kids and usually had closer bonds with the children. Therefore, in most cases, it was better suited for the children to remain with the mother. But times have changed. Dads are more involved in their kids' lives than ever before. We're no longer satisfied just to pay child support and see them every other weekend. We, too, can be nurturers and caregivers. It is time for courts across the country to take more notice of the father's evolving role in the care of the child and provide us with unbiased treatment in custody battles. If you're with me, sign this petition. Dad's, it's time to stand up and make our voice heard. Deadbeat is not just a male term. We love our children just as much and we want to have the same rights.
