Jail for Justice
It is time for divorce law reform. To bring attention to the clear bias the courts show against fathers, I am surrendering myself to the Northampton County, Pennsylvania Sherriff's office tomorrow before I pay another nickel to my ex-wife’s attorney.
Opposing counsel has a documented history of employing sleazy bait-and-switch tactics to not only separate me from my children for over a year, force the sale of a marital property at an irresponsible loss, but to evict me from my home on four days notice, all with impunity. Regardless of this scandalous behavior, the like of which might otherwise earn him a profile on American Greed, each time he files a motion, the court orders me to payhim.
I am already reeling from the costs associated with divorce and must continue to support my children. How does bankrupting and jailing a single father benefit the kids? If I feed, tutor, clothe and nurture them, provide them with a good home, make support payments and never once stood in the way of my ex-wife living as she pleases, why am I being punished?
