1. Florida is now moving toward a joint custody state.
2. Never Ever and I mean NEVER stop fighting. it is as this enlightened father has pointed out the only way that your kids will know how much you care. Admittedly money can get tight but the same govt. agencies that women use to get the fathers out of the picture are available to men.
If the agency that you attempt to utilize is hesitant or refuses cooperation then ask them “how would they feel if their denial of assistance and the reasons for it were to say ..be suddenly broadcast on the local news or in an opinion column of a newspaper?” they might think you are bluffing but I know that there are alot of decent journalists out there who would love to help expose sexism and corruption in govt.
3. Never threaten anyone. if you say your going to the press then by god be prepared to go to them.
