TIP  73...AVOID ENTANGLEMENT WITH A NEW WOMAN UNTIL AFTER YOUR CASE IS FINISHED COMPLETELY! THAT WILL ONLY COMPLICATE YOUR CASE, CAUSE YOUR EX TO GET ANGRY, AND HURT YOUR CHANCES IN COURT.                        

TIP 72  An agreement between you and your spouse to lower support or forgive support is useless. You must have a order signed by a Judge or you can be hit for arrearages in full but visitation orders usually should allow some flexibility for the parties to modify visitation times that they agree upon without a new court order. But get it in writing or keep your email or text messages recorded! Always get written evidence and keep good records and photos of visitations.. your word against hers is not worth much.

 

TIP 71 WARNING TO UNWED FATHERS IN ILLINOIS

Illinois has passed a law contradicting the Supreme Court OF THE US, attempting to curtail unwed fathers rights!! It should be ruled unconstitutional just like the Illinois law in Lulay V, Illinois for the same reasons, it also curtails the child's right to both parents..

 

 

TIP# 70  Control of Visitation

Your spouse has no right to control your visitation location or activities and even a court cannot interfere with or restrict your plans unless the children are endangered. "A parent not granted custody of the child is entitled to reasonable visitation rights unless the Court finds, after a hearing, that visitation would endanger seriously the child's physical, mental, moral, or emotional health." 750 ILCS 6/607(a)    (FULL TEXT AND EXPLANATION IS IN THE GUIDE TO FATHERS RIGHTS)

#69 Typical (LA) BEST INTERESTS STATUTE   forget common sense in defining best interests, you must prove all these elements during your hearing or you LOSE!

Art. 134.  Factors in determining child's best interest

The court shall consider all relevant factors in determining the best interest of the child.  Such factors may include:

(1)  The love, affection, and other emotional ties between each party and the child.

(2)  The capacity and disposition of each party to give the child love, affection, and spiritual guidance and to continue the education and rearing of the child.

(3)  The capacity and disposition of each party to provide the child with food, clothing, medical care, and other material needs.

(4)  The length of time the child has lived in a stable, adequate environment, and the desirability of maintaining continuity of that environment.

(5)  The permanence, as a family unit, of the existing or proposed custodial home or homes.

(6)  The moral fitness of each party, insofar as it affects the welfare of the child.

(7)  The mental and physical health of each party.

(8)  The home, school, and community history of the child.

(9)  The reasonable preference of the child, if the court deems the child to be of sufficient age to express a preference.

(10)  The willingness and ability of each party to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing relationship between the child and the other party.  THIS IS WHERE DADS WIN CUSTODY WHEN DENIED VISITATION

(11)  The distance between the respective residences of the parties.

(12)  The responsibility for the care and rearing of the child previously exercised by each party.

#68  The last question to ask on a cross exam is what visitation do you think will be necessary for your ex husband to be able to maintain his relationship with the child? After she answers you say: Of course you know your ex husband is also asking for custody. If he should win how much visitation do you want for yourself!  

#67  CHILD SUPPORT STATISTICS:

The U.S. Census Bureau has reported that fathers with joint custody pay 90.2% of all child support ordered; fathers with limited visitation rights pay 79.1%; and 44.5% of those fathers with NO visitation rights still financially support their children.

30% of custodial mothers not receiving child support have never asked for or do not want child support.

25% of custodial mothers do not receive child support because the father is unable to pay.

20 % of custodial mothers not receiving child support have made other financial arrangements with the father.

11% of custodial mothers not receiving child support do not have a child support order.

Of ten million custodial mothers ONLY 7% (one out of fourteen) do not receive child support because of a deadbeat dad.

Cook County, IL. litigation  WARNING

When possible litigate in Skokie vice Downtown

Downtown Judges often require appointment of evaluators and GAL attorneys raising your IMMEDIATE PRE TRIAL costs by OVER $15,000!

Certain Chicago attorneys file many spurious and repetitive pleadings to increase attorney fees (sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars) to force fathers to settle!!! Their fees are then considered part of a child support award and can be enforced by locking up a father! Avoid litigating downtown!

Certain evaluators are sometimes favored who always find the mother should have custody. Check out an evaluator's reputation and credentials before agreeing to a Judge's recommendation

#65

Certain non lawyers attempt to market their books by claiming "special "knowledge based on their own limited personal experience and alleging they were "milked" by attorneys who kept "secret" tactics hidden. In fact most only sell a few pages of information available elsewhere on the internet for free. Some try using copycat sound alike names for books similar to books by established authors and attorneys. They often charge much more for much less useful information, commingled with anti system rants and their own biased opinions based on their own limited and unsuccessful experiences. Of course there are lawyers who don't do a good job. They usually charge a fixed or low fee and are not motivated to continue working on cases that are not a source of income to pay bills and usually recommend mediation or early settlement. Often they have never really done a full trial with testimony and witnesses and are afraid to actually try a case. Often going to trial quickly will actually save a client a lot of attorney fees usually eaten up by countless motion and status or in chambers hearings where the client never gets to tell his story. However most successful lawyers have a very large ego and take pride in winning cases and actually enjoy a trial where their skills are showcased. These attorneys actually turn down many more clients than they accept so don't need to "milk" any one case for fees. Their advice is based on trying many cases. Some groups claiming to be "fathers rights advocates" try to sell a pre paid legal plan . In law as in anything else, you get what you pay for and a prepaid plan won't cover 1 hour of a good attorney's time. No good lawyer can afford to offer his services to such pre paid plans. A lawyer sells time and doing a case right takes time. Sorry, there are no free lunches and you might have to forget your next new truck or car if you really value seeing your kids!

#60    CAUTION   cheap "walmart attorneys"  There are lawyers who don't do a good job. They usually charge a fixed or low fee and are not motivated to continue working on cases that are not a source of income to pay bills and usually recommend mediation or early settlement. Often they have never really done a full trial with testimony and witnesses and are afraid to actually try a case. However most successful lawyers have a very large ego and take pride in winning cases and actually enjoy a trial where their skills are showcased.

Often going to trial quickly will actually save a client a lot of attorney fees usually eaten up by countless motion and status or in chambers hearings where the client never gets to tell his story and soon exhausts his money. There are also several NON LAWYER "consultants" on fathers rights  .They are not cheap and they know less than the walmart type attorneys and may cause you to lose your case. Their experience usually comes from losing their own case.

Beware of sound alike copycat books. FIGHTING FALSE ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSE is ONLY available from the fathers rights foundation and was published long before recent books by non lawyers. The book contains documents and arguments that have actually been used in real life cases to win cases for fathers . One man used this book and went from being booked for false child abuse charges to winning custody because of the false charges being made!!! This is the only book that tells how to make the allegations backfire so you win custody! Click here for a table of contents of the original book! FIGHTING FALSE ALLEGATIONS

ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE "STABILITY" RED HERRING CLAIM  IMPORTANT!!!!!!!

Feminist attorneys often use an argument for "stability" as an excuse to minimize visitation for fathers. They claim moving a child back and forth to the father causes instability and emotional problems for the child. This is a red herring AND INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST argument ! The only time the stability argument is raised is when it used is to try to limit visitation time with the father. The stability argument ignores common sense, proven statistics and studies. It ignores the real world situation today when children are shuffled back and forth to day care, sunday school, school , the mothers grandparents or babysitters etc because most women work full time. Why is it more unsettling for a child to spend time with their father than with a babysitter or day care? Will the Courts order the mother to stay home to provide stability? Doesn't the fact that children cry and plead for more time with their father give someone a clue that they are being emotionally abused? Children need EMOTIONAL STABILITY, not a hypothetical physical stability that cannot be provided when both parents work! Backup statistics are free on http://www.fathersrights.org

PREPAID LEGAL INTERNET SCAMS

One of the most popular scams appears to be low cost prepaid legal services (you pay membership dues). As far as prepaid legal services go, when is the last time you got something for nothing? All lawyers must pay expenses. No lawyer worth hiring is going to work for low fees. The truth is that no good lawyer needs referrals from a prepaid plan. Contrary to what some internet scammers who want to sell you their books say, no good lawyer has any interest in prolonging any one case because he has all the cases he can handle anyway. No prepaid fees company can operate without a profit. So how can a plan that solicits clients with existing legal problems possibly afford to provide good (if any) representation or information? In insurance (which a prepaid plan is) that would be called adverse selection. To make a prepaid plan work, most clients must not use the service or cost the service expenses so that the few with claims can be financed and leave a profit for the insurance providers. Call State Farm and tell them you know that you are going to have a wreck that will cost them a large claim very soon and ask them if they will insure you!! Legitimate pre paid plan s may be available but they would have long waiting periods during which you pay premiums equal to your risk of actually having a legal case . They for sure would not be asking people with active claims who need help now or in the near future to join their plan! How long would an insurance company who advertised for patients with active cancer that needed doctors NOW remain in business if it actually paid the claims or provided free medical services to people who just signed up???? If you have an active legal problem and require professional help or advice the same principal applies. Sorry, there are no free lunches and those preying on fathers and giving false hope that they can litigate without costing a lot money are not much more than con men. There ARE real ways to minimize the legal fees you pay. They can be found in the book "How to Minimize Fees.

#56    Beware of prepaid legal plans that promise unrealistic results!! Attorneys are paid by the hour . Good attorneys are paid a lot. A good and competent attorney would not be participating in a plan where the hourly fee is low. Fighting a custody battle is expensive and time consuming and no attorney and no prepaid legal scam will bear the burden of your legal expenses. They will give you the amount of time you paid for and that is at the best! Beware of the oldest con game ,promising something for nothing  or a ridiculously low price. All scams are based on that come on. In law as in in anything else, you get what you pay for! For an attorney screened and selected by the fathers rights foundation go to http://www.dadslawyer.com. There is also no reason to pay a non lawyer consultant thousands of dollars for advice you could read in the Guide to fathers rights available at http://www.fathersrights.org

ALL STATES : ORDERS OF PROTECTION FROM WOMEN'S CENTERS ADVOCATES... WARNING

WOMEN'S CENTERS AND SOME STATES ATTORNEY OFFICES RECEIVE FEDERAL FUNDING BASED ON HOW OFTEN THEY FILE PROTECTIVE ORDERS AND CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST MEN UNDER THE VAWA (VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT). Women's advocates coach women in filling out pleadings with inflammatory words or exaggerations. Many court systems are conducting regular seminars by feminists pushing domestic violence propaganda and ignoring the many instances of false allegations being filed during custody cases. IF FALSE ALLEGATIONS ARE MADE AGAINST YOU, MAKE NO, NADA, ZERO, STATEMENT OF ANY KIND TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU TALK TO LOCAL COUNSEL and read HOW TO FIGHT FALSE ALLEGATIONS  . THE POLICE OR SOCIAL WORKERS ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS .DO NOT EXPLAIN YOURSELF TO THEM OR DISCUSS THE ALLEGATIONS OR EVEN CLAIM INNOCENCE TO THEM...SHUT UP AND DEMAND TO SEE A LAWYER. THEIR QUESTIONING MUST STOP WHEN YOU ASK FOR A LAWYER.

THE GUIDE TO FATHERS RIGHTS ,WHICH IS ALSO INCLUDED IN THE DIVORCE CUSTODY KIT with FIGHTING FALSE ALLEGATIONS , AND MINIMIZING CHILD  SUPPORT IS THE ORIGINAL REFERENCE ON COMBATING PARENTAL ALIENATION SYNDROME.

#54 SCHOOL VACATION/BREAK  VISITATION PERIOD ...If you anticipate problems getting your court ordered visitation see your lawyer NOW to have papers prepared . Inform your ex in writing with return receipt when you will be picking up the children. Take along a witness (not your girlfriend or new wife), take along a video recorder for the witness to record the exchange. Where legal have a pocket voice recorder in your jacket turned on. If the ex refuses to allow visitation file a police report immediately. DO NOT yell or threaten, let her do that on video and immediately serve her your already prepared motion to hold her in contempt. In some states visitation denial is a criminal offense. Insist she be charged. Go to the prosecutor or news media if necessary claiming men are being discriminated against by the prosecutor's not enforcing state laws. Cops don't like to get involved but MUST if denial/interference is a criminal offense. Regardless, make sure a written police report of your complaint is kept on file by the police. DO NOT ARGUE IN FRONT OF YOUR KIDS (EVER). BE CALM. Is the ex is violating a court order that specifically spells out your visitation schedule, leaving no ambiguity, she should be held responsible for payment of your attorney fees. If your order is not specific, get a new lawyer. The TV media would love to film a story about kids being emotionally abused by not being allowed to see their father for school breaks and local authorities standing by not protecting the kids!!!! Set it up in advance! Keep a copy of the tape for use in court.

WOMEN'S CENTERS & THE EX PARTE ORDER OF PROTECTION SCAM

Women's centers and prosecutors receive millions of dollars in federal grants to promote the use of protective orders against men (thanks to the Clintons). THE MORE ORDERS ARE ISSUED, THE BETTER THEIR CHANCE FOR MORE FEDERAL MONEY. When a woman contacts a center (OR SOMETIMES EVEN A COUNTY PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE) they guide her through a fill in the blank Petition for an order of protection. They know the key words to excite a Judge into issuing an order WITHOUT YOU EVEN BEING THERE OR HAVING A SAY. They often will make vague assertions that they THINK you are a danger to the children or the spouse whether you have even EVER touched your wife or child. You are thrown out of your house without a toothbrush and deprived of the use of your property without your 5th amendment guaranteed right to a hearing. The tactic then is to delay hearings on a divorce so your can't see your children and will agree to give your wife whatever she wants so you and the kids won't continue to be emotionally distressed. As soon as you sign an agreement the charges suddenly are withdrawn. This is intentional emotional and mental abuse of the children and should not be tolerated. It also raises your best chance to win custody if you can prove the allegations are false. It also reduces the credibility of a woman who is truly abused when she comes before a judge who has seen frequent abuses of the protective order scam. You should seek counsel immediately and plead that your wife and any accomplices are abusing your children emotionally. One feminist attorney was recently disbarred for encouraging a female client to make false allegations of abuse to gain an advantage in litigation. Women's centers can be sued for intentional infliction of emotional distress. Attorney fees and sanctions should be sought and are often granted for rebutting a false pleading. Beware of a feminist underground movement that supports kidnapping of children by mothers to keep them away from their fathers. Be wary of your female children being housed at a women's center as they are often a magnet for lesbians. You may request a physical examination if you suspect abuse. Do not go near a women's center and expose yourself to false allegations of trespass. see fighting false allegations.

Contribute now to Judicial campaigns, FREE book for Judges

Now is the time to contribute to and help in local and especially appellate Judicial elections. Make sure that the Judge or his campaign solicitor knows that you are interested/active in fathers rights movements when you work or contribute. Do not contribute to a Judge you are appearing before (unless you are an attorney and it is unavoidable). As little as a $25.00 contribution is appreciated especially when campaign funds are tight - like now! You will be amazed how much even a small contribution endears you to the judge!! Your personal work on a telephone bank is even more effective! If you know a Judge has been unfair, contribute to and work for his or her opponent! Do not vote for a party or candidate that supports the VAWA violence against women act or supports the feminist agenda! Give the Judge a kids need daddys too bumper sticker or a comprehensive guide to fathers rights which can also be sent to a Judge for free by the Fathers Rights Foundation when requested on a Judicial letterhead!

 

#48 Beware of standardized visitation plans

Several feminists have conspired with pseudo psychologists to publish standardized visitation plans WITH A MINIMAL AMOUNT OF VISITATION SLOWLY INCREASING AS THE CHILD MATURES. Upon reading them you will see they almost always minimize the time the non custodial parent has with the children especially at early ages. They totally ignore common sense and proven statistics that show fatherless children turn out badly and state laws and cases that say maximum involvement of both parents is in the best interests of the child. DO NOT AGREE THAT YOU WILL BLINDLY ACCEPT SUCH A STANDARDIZED PLAN .Any reputable child psychologist could tear these plans apart but they often go un challenged and accepted by courts because they APPEAR to be scientifically based when in fact they are a back door attempt by feminists to limit the involvement between children and their fathers. Ask the question: Why does it only cause instability in a child's life when she is left at her fathers house but not when she is left at school or, with a babysitter or daycare or at Sunday school or with the mother's parents ???? THE ONLY TIME THE STABILITY ISSUE IS RAISED IS IN ATTEMPTS TO LIMIT A FATHERS VISITATION WITH HIS CHILDREN! The stability argument is an intellectually dishonest argument.

CAN THE EX CONTROL YOUR VISITATION& YOUR RIGHT TO BABYSITTERS TIME?

Your spouse has no right to control your visitation location or activities and even a court cannot interfere with or restrict your plans unless the children are endangered. (IL CASES)

"A parent not granted custody of the child is entitled to reasonable visitation rights unless the Court finds, after a hearing, that visitation would endanger seriously the child's physical, mental, moral, or emotional health." 750 ILCS 6/607(a)

With respect to the restriction of visitation, the endangerment standard is an onerous one (In re Marriage of Hanson (1983), 112 Ill. App. 3d 564, 568; In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048), and is more stringent or exacting than the best-interest standard (In re Marriage of Solomon (1980), 84 Ill. App. 3d 901, 907; Ill. Ann. Stat., ch. 40, par. 607(c), Supplement to Historical and Practice Notes, at 27 (Smith-Hurd Supp. 1983); see In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048). Where the custodial parent seeks to restrict visitation rights, he or she bears the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that the existing visitation seriously endangers the child. (Griffiths v. Griffiths (1984), 127 Ill. App. 3d 126, 129; In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048.) In re Marriage of Anderson, 474 N.E.2d 911, 130 Ill. App. 3d 684 (1985).

A restriction on visitation is action which limits, restrains, or confines visitation within bounds. (In Re Marriage of Tisckos/ Stewart (1987), 161 Ill. App. 3d 302, 310,514 N.E.2d 523, 528.) A termination of visitation is a restriction (In re Marriage of Dunn (1987), 155 Ill. App. 3d 247, 254, 508 N.E.2d 250, 255), as is a prohibition on overnight visitation. Likewise, a requirement that visitation be supervised, occur in the home of the custodial parent, or outside the home of the noncustodial parent is a restriction. (Tisckos/Stewart, 161 Ill. App. 3d at 310, 514 N.E.2d at 528.) In re the Marriage LaTour, 608 N.E.2d 1339, 241 Ill. App. 3d 500, (1993)

In other words, if the child is not physically or mentally endangered , it is no business of your ex or the court what happens during your visitation or where you go to enjoy it.

The custodial parent placing the child with a third party rather than allowing the other parent the opportunity for additional visitation is engaging in an unreasonable denial of visitation.

"The custodial parent has the duty to strengthen and nurture in every way possible to relationship between the children and the non custodial parent . . . By allowing the father to serve as his child's babysitter when he is available the father can still be a significant part of the child's life even though he doesn't have custody . . . We fail to see how one could reasonably argue that the child's best interest are better served by having a babysitter care for him instead of his father. In Re Dobey, 629 N E 2d 812, 196 Ill. Dec. 267 (1994)

Beware of sites offering advice and books from non lawyers. Only a lawyer can be your advocate in Court. Non lawyers unlawfully attempting to sell legal advice or consultations usually have lost their own case. You wouldn't go to a prisoner for legal advice if you were arrested. Don't go to a guy who lost his child custody case for custody advice!! There are NO secrets these guys know that any first year practicing attorney wouldn't know. These guys have been involved in ONE case, their own. A practicing lawyer handles hundreds of such cases and can be more objective. A good fathers rights lawyer has so many cases offered him that he has no need to prolong or "milk" any one case. He turns away many cases. A good lawyer knows how to use the system and make it work for you. Save the money you might waste on questionable, non qualified advice or unlicensed consultants who want to charge you a fee. There are many good books available written by lawyers with years of experience actually trying many fathers' cases and often a first consultation with a licensed attorney costs less than charged by some of these non lawyers.

 "Home base" (stability) theory for limited visitation a giant step backwards and a danger to children's mental health!!

Certain Judges have adopted a new theory called " home base " as a new excuse to justify limiting dads to every other weekend and one dinner or overnight visit a week. They ignore common sense and proven statistics showing how harmful it is to not have a dad involved in a child's life. They have adopted some new feminist backed study (refutation resources are being prepared now for future help from this foundation) indicating any more visitation is harmful!! They say much of the time available after school etc is just grunt time ie washing clothes , transporting kids etc and thus isn't quality visitation time for either parent ie shouldn't be counted against time with the mother/custodial parent. They ignore that "grunt time" is in fact precious parenting time when discipline and other childhood traits are developed and the relationship with a parent is established. They ignore the crying children and parents who want to maintain close relationships. They in fact ignore laws that require maximum involvement of both parents! In fact the term "grunt time" is insulting to children and parents and to imply the woman should be "stuck" with the "grunt time" seems demeaning to women! Be prepared to attack this concept with expert testimony . Use the statistics available at http://www.fathersrights.org on the results of children being in fatherless homes. If fatherless homes produce disturbed children, doesn't common sense tell you that the more time spent with a non custodial parent, the better?? Expect some Judges to set the first temporary visitation schedule based on this theory and fight it the first time it is used by the Judge or feminist counsels.

#40PUNISHMENT/ TREATMENT FOR ALIENATING A CHILD AGAINST THE OTHER PARENT

If Parental alienation is a problem, the person at fault, the person criticizing the other parent in front of the child or interfering with visitation thus causing the child emotional damage just to gain an advantage in litigation is also truly despicable . That parent should bear the brunt of any reaction to brainwashing the child, not the child. AS RECOMMENDED BY PSYCHOLOGISTS THE ALIENATING (BRAINWASHING) PARENT SHOULD UNDERGO PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION/ TREATMENT AND HAVE NO CONTACT WITH THE CHILD DURING A LONG CUSTODY PERIOD WITH THE FATHER GIVEN TO RE ESTABLISH THE DAMAGED RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE FATHER AND CHILD.

The mother for not ensuring Alec's diatribe was kept from publication and embarrassing her daughter further ,the mother for at the least not encouraging a good relationship between Alec and his daughter, and Alec for his despicable attack on his daughter.

We hope the Judge protects the child from BOTH parents! An independent child's attorney should be appointed by the Judge in this case. COUNSELING SHOULD BE ORDERED FOR BOTH PARENTS AND THE CHILD. All persons engaged in leaking the tape of Alec's call contrary to court order should be severely sanctioned or disciplined.

# 38 , LAWYER SELECTION

BE CAREFUL OF LAWYERS WHO ADVERTISE FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR CHILD SUPPORT COLLECTION CASES (UNLESS THEY ADVERTISE DEFENSE ONLY OF SUCH CASES ) . THERE ARE MANY CLOSET FEMINISTS WHO WOULD STILL TAKE YOUR MONEY. A RESUME SHOWING A WORK HISTORY WITH WOMEN'S CAUSES IS A DEAD GIVEAWAY. IF POSSIBLE SEEK ATTORNEYS WHO BOLDLY ADVERTISE FATHERS RIGHTS. ALSO QUESTION THE AGENDA OF WEBSITES OR AUTHORS WHO ADVERTISE SEPARATE BOOKS FOR WOMEN ON DIVORCE TACTICS.

USE THE SYSTEM

Several internet sites offer advice and publications (usually written by non lawyers who have lost their own case) advise fathers to make arguments not recognized by the Courts and sometimes even advise fathers to attack Judges' and lawyers' integrity. Their books claim lawyers don't use "secret" strategies solely to make more money. They only want to sell you a useless book. The truth is any good lawyer has more cases than he can handle and doesn't need or want to prolong any one case!  Don't fight the system, You will lose!  Use the system! Argue what "should be" to your legislator, argue the law "as it is" to your Judge! Present laws if argued effectively are more than sufficient for a father to win custody and at least very liberal visitation rights. If your lawyer is not fighting for your rights, find a new one. If you don't trust your lawyer, find one you can!! There is also no need to pay thousands of dollars to non lawyer consultants who cannot even appear before the Courts! They know nothing any experienced family law attorney worth his salt doesn't already know and use! For referrals to good fathers rights lawyers in your area, click here.

THIS IS HOW A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE WEBSITE (we won't help by giving link) coaches women on how to use inflammatory words to get a restraining order :

Read the petition carefully and ask questions if you don’t understand something. Write briefly about the most recent incident of violence, using descriptive language (slapping, hitting, grabbing, choking, threatening, etc.) that fits your situation. Be specific. Include details and dates, if possible. (THIS ADVICE IS IN EFFECT COACHING AND ENCOURAGES FALSE OR EXAGGERATED STATEMENTS)

A domestic violence organization may be able to provide you with help or support as you fill out the form. (and teach you how to exaggerate with more words that will push Judges' hot buttons)

Note: Do not sign the application until you have shown it to a clerk. The form may need to be notarized or signed in the presence of court personnel.

Step 3: Request a Temporary Restraining Order (if necessary). If you need immediate protection from the abuse, you can request an ex parte Temporary Restraining Order (TRO). If you request a TRO, the form will include an affidavit signed by each petitioner (victim) that the facts and circumstances in the petition are true and correct. It is a serious offense to give any false statement(s) under oath contained in the affidavit, and it may be punishable by fine or imprisonment. (at least they tell them that!)

The "burden of litigating a domestic relations proceeding can itself be 'so disruptive of the parent-child relationship that the constitutional right of a custodial parent to make certain basic determinations for the child's welfare becomes implicated.' " Troxel, 530 U.S. at , 147 L. Ed. 2d at 62, 120 S. Ct. at 2065, quoting 530 U.S. at , 147 L. Ed. 2d at 78, 120 S. Ct. at 2079 (Kennedy, J., dissenting). US SUPREME COURT CASE

SUMMER VISITATION ..If you anticipate problems getting your court ordered visitation see your lawyer NOW to have papers prepared . Inform your ex in writing with return receipt when you will be picking up the children. Take along a witness (not your girlfriend or new wife), take along a video recorder for witness to record the child exchange. Where legal have a pocket voice recorder in your jacket turned on. If she refuses visitation file a police report. DO NOT yell or threaten, let her do that on video and immediately serve her your motion to hold her in contempt. In some states visitation denial is a criminal offense. Insist she be charged. Go to prosecutor or news medias if necessary claiming men are being discriminated against by not enforcing law. Cops don't like to get involved but MUST if denial/interference is a criminal offense. DO NOT ARGUE IN FRONT OF KIDS (EVER). BE CALM. If she is violating a court order she should be held responsible for your attorney fees.

#33  Supervised visitation or visitation location restriction requirements

Where the custodial parent seeks to restrict visitation rights, he or she bears the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that the existing visitation seriously endangers the child. (Griffiths v. Griffiths (1984), 127 Ill. App. 3d 126, 129; In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048.) In re Marriage of Anderson, 474 N.E.2d 911, 130 Ill. App. 3d 684 (1985).

A restriction on visitation is action which limits, restrains, or confines visitation within bounds. (In Re Marriage of Tisckos/ Stewart (1987), 161 Ill. App. 3d 302, 310,514 N.E.2d 523, 528.) A termination of visitation is a restriction (In re Marriage of Dunn (1987), 155 Ill. App. 3d 247, 254, 508 N.E.2d 250, 255), as is a prohibition on overnight visitation. Likewise, a requirement that visitation be supervised, occur in the home of the custodial parent, or outside the home of the noncustodial parent is a restriction. (Tisckos/Stewart, 161 Ill. App. 3d at 310, 514 N.E.2d at 528.) In re the Marriage LaTour, 608 N.E.2d 1339, 241 Ill. App. 3d 500, (1993)

More case law is on http://www.fathers-rights.com

DO NOT ACCEPT RESTRICTIONS, VISITATION IS A FUNDAMENTAL , US CONSTITUTIONAL ,NON NEGOTIABLE RIGHT YOU WIN EVERY TIME IF THERE IS NO DANGER. THIS IS A HIGHER STANDARD THAN JUST MEETING "BEST INTERESTS" OF THE CHILD!!!!!!!!!

 

Mothers abuse children more than fathers

Be cautious about statistics feminists use. One father (instead of the mother) was being accused by prosecutors and social workers of shaking a child causing brain damage simply because a W. Virginia college study showed "more men abuse children than women". If the prosecutor or social workers had actually read the study they would have found that the sum of women abusers plus their boyfriend abusers far outnumbers the abusers who were fathers and in fact mothers alone (leaving their boyfriends numbers out of the male abusers totals) abuse more often than fathers.  It was only by lumping the mothers' boyfriends statistics with fathers statistics that you could conclude "more men abuse children than women" !!! Figures don't lie but liars figure! The medical expert was testifying that shaken child syndrome arises immediately after the shaking incriminating the father but had testified in a previous case that it can arise weeks later!!! Always word search case law using the experts name TO FIND CONTRADICTORY TESTIMONY SHE HAS GIVEN IN OTHER CASES. In this case the mother's abuse of other children exposed that she was the true abuser and some prosecutors and feminist social workers had egg on their face!

ACTIVATED RESERVISTS / GUARDSMEN RIGHT TO LOWER CHILD SUPPORT

Activated reservists and Guardsmen normally suffer a loss of income. You must immediately file a motion to lower support. Normally support due before your motion cannot be changed or forgiven. Normally only support due after your motion is filed may be (and almost always is) lowered or forgiven down to the lower level. A free sample motion to lower support for activated reservists and Guardsmen, ADAPTABLE TO ANYONE, is available at http://www.lowersupport.com.

 Act now before any judgment of custody is made. You never are in a better position than you will be before a judge decides any issue in your case! Don't go to court unprepared. Read the Guide to fathers rights and follow its tactics before you let your lawyer blow your case in the initial temporary hearings! It is easier (and cheaper) to do it right the first time than to repair poor tactics or decisions later!

 

WARNING: IF YOU WANT TO SAVE A MARRIAGE DO NOT COUNTER FILE ASKING FOR DIVORCE! You may file a motion for reconciliation and counseling to save the marriage. Motions, pleadings and tactics are available at HOW TO STOP A DIVORCE

 Fathers are critical for the emotional development of their children and very very few are deadbeat dads.  Use these statistics (click link) to win your case!

 

Don't divert your energies attacking the system or Judges, concentrate your money and energy on fixing your case and protecting your kids. Don't fight the system, You will lose!  Use the system! Argue what "should be" to your legislator, argue the law "as it is" to your Judge! Present laws if argued effectively and coupled with proven successful tactics are more than sufficient for a father to win custody and at least very liberal visitation rights. If your lawyer is not fighting for your rights and is just using fill in the blank standard pleadings not incorporating the legal arguments particular to your case or only being defensive, find a new one. If you don't trust your lawyer, find one you can! There is definitely NO advantage in family court for a man to have a female attorney.

 

 

ALL STATES : ORDERS OF PROTECTION FROM WOMEN'S CENTERS ADVOCATES... WARNING

WOMEN'S CENTERS AND SOME STATES ATTORNEY OFFICES RECEIVE FEDERAL FUNDING BASED ON HOW OFTEN THEY FILE PROTECTIVE ORDERS AND CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST MEN UNDER THE VAWA (VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT). Women's advocates coach women in filling out pleadings with inflammatory words or exaggerations. Many court systems are conducting regular seminars by feminists pushing domestic violence propaganda and ignoring the many instances of false allegations being filed during custody cases. IF FALSE ALLEGATIONS ARE MADE AGAINST YOU, MAKE NO STATEMENT TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU TALK TO LOCAL COUNSEL and read HOW TO FIGHT FALSE ALLEGATIONS  .

CAUTION: BEWARE OF SO CALLED CUSTODY KITS WRITTEN BY NON LAWYERS. THEY CANNOT POSSIBLY RENDER PROPER LEGAL ADVICE AND OFTEN ARE JUST RANTS AGAINST THE LEGAL SYSTEM. THEY ARE PRICED HIGHER THAN MOST AVAILABLE LAWYER WRITTEN MATERIALS AND ARE USUALLY A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY. THERE ARE NO "SECRET" TACTICS THAT ARE NOT KNOWN BY GOOD ATTORNEYS WHO PRACTICE FAMILY LAW DAY IN AND DAY OUT. THE VALUE OF YOUR KNOWING GOOD SOUND TACTICS WRITTEN AND PRACTICED BY ATTORNEYS IS THAT YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR CASE AND WHETHER YOUR ATTORNEY IS DOING A GOOD JOB.

CAN THE EX CONTROL YOUR VISITATION& YOUR RIGHT TO BABYSITTERS TIME?

Your spouse has no right to control your visitation location or activities and even a court cannot interfere with or restrict your plans unless the children are endangered. (IL CASES)

"A parent not granted custody of the child is entitled to reasonable visitation rights unless the Court finds, after a hearing, that visitation would endanger seriously the child's physical, mental, moral, or emotional health." 750 ILCS 6/607(a)

With respect to the restriction of visitation, the endangerment standard is an onerous one (In re Marriage of Hanson (1983), 112 Ill. App. 3d 564, 568; In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048), and is more stringent or exacting than the best-interest standard (In re Marriage of Solomon (1980), 84 Ill. App. 3d 901, 907; Ill. Ann. Stat., ch. 40, par. 607(c), Supplement to Historical and Practice Notes, at 27 (Smith-Hurd Supp. 1983); see In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048). Where the custodial parent seeks to restrict visitation rights, he or she bears the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that the existing visitation seriously endangers the child. (Griffiths v. Griffiths (1984), 127 Ill. App. 3d 126, 129; In re Marriage of Neat (1981), 101 Ill. App. 3d 1046, 1048.) In re Marriage of Anderson, 474 N.E.2d 911, 130 Ill. App. 3d 684 (1985).

A restriction on visitation is action which limits, restrains, or confines visitation within bounds. (In Re Marriage of Tisckos/ Stewart (1987), 161 Ill. App. 3d 302, 310,514 N.E.2d 523, 528.) A termination of visitation is a restriction (In re Marriage of Dunn (1987), 155 Ill. App. 3d 247, 254, 508 N.E.2d 250, 255), as is a prohibition on overnight visitation. Likewise, a requirement that visitation be supervised, occur in the home of the custodial parent, or outside the home of the noncustodial parent is a restriction. (Tisckos/Stewart, 161 Ill. App. 3d at 310, 514 N.E.2d at 528.) In re the Marriage LaTour, 608 N.E.2d 1339, 241 Ill. App. 3d 500, (1993)

In other words, if the child is not physically or mentally endangered it is no business of your ex or the court what happens during your visitation or where you go to enjoy it.

The custodial parent placing the child with a third party rather than allowing the other parent the opportunity for additional visitation is engaging in an unreasonable denial of visitation.

"The custodial parent has the duty to strengthen and nurture in every way possible to relationship between the children and the non custodial parent . . . By allowing the father to serve as his child's babysitter when he is available the father can still be a significant part of the child's life even though he doesn't have custody . . . We fail to see how one could reasonably argue that the child's best interest are better served by having a babysitter care for him instead of his father. In Re Dobey, 629 N E 2d 812, 196 Ill. Dec. 267 (1994).

Fighting false allegations of abuse: Give no statement to any authority until you have talked to legal counsel. Nothing you say will be used to help you, only hinder you. Do not agree to any polygraph other than a private one set up by your attorney. When asked to take one by any authority to take a polygraph say only if you first give the accuser one to determine whether the allegations are false and after that only if you guarantee in writing that if I pass the test you will drop any investigation of me. (They never agree to let a polygraph help you, only to hurt you!) HOW TO FIGHT FALSE ALLEGATIONS  LINK

The "back room Judge's chambers shuffle"

When a custody case is filed in the downtown Chicago (and other cities throughout the US) courthouse, the Judge will almost automatically appoint a highly paid local attorney as a child's representative and appoint a psychologist to perform a custody evaluation. These two experts' fees will increase your cases' costs by tens of thousands of dollars. This renders justice beyond the financial ability of most fathers and often results in the father being forced to settle (in off the record backroom sessions without the father's presence) for a visitation schedule of every other weekend and maybe one night during the week. When possible ALWAYS litigate in the suburban Cook county courts!!! THIS FORCING SETTLEMENT BY INCREASING LITIGATION COSTS TECHNIQUE IS SPREADING THROUGHOUT THE US.

 PREPAID LAWYER INTERNET SCAMS

One of the most popular scams appears to be low cost prepaid legal services (you pay low membership dues). As far as prepaid legal services go, when is the last time you got something for nothing? All lawyers must pay expenses. No lawyer worth hiring is going to work for low fees. The truth is that no good, established lawyer needs referrals from a prepaid plan. Contrary to what some internet scammers who want to sell you their books say, no good lawyer has any interest in prolonging any one case because he has all the cases he can handle anyway. No prepaid fees company can operate without a profit. So how can a plan that solicits clients with existing legal problems possibly afford to provide good (if any) representation or information? In insurance (which a prepaid plan is) that would be called adverse selection. To make a prepaid plan work, most clients must not use the service or cost the service expenses so that the few with claims can be financed and leave a profit for the insurance providers. Call State Farm and tell them you know that you are going to have a wreck that will cost them a large claim very soon and ask them if they will insure you!! Legitimate pre paid plan s may be available but they would have long waiting periods during which you pay premiums equal to your risk of actually having a legal case . They for sure would not be asking people with active claims who need help now or in the near future to join their plan! How long would an insurance company who advertised for patients with active cancer that needed doctors NOW remain in business if it actually paid the claims or provided free medical services to people who just signed up???? If you have an active legal problem and require professional help or advice the same principal applies. Sorry, there are no free lunches and those preying on fathers and giving false hope that they can litigate without costing a lot money are not much more than con men. You will have to sacrifice to protect your kids from the mental abuse of being denied time with their father. There ARE real ways to control and minimize the legal fees you pay. They can be found in the book "How to Minimize Fees" (written by a lawyer) and available at http://www.fathers-rights.com.

 

AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE TO LOWER SUPPORT IS WORTHLESS UNLESS IT IS IN AN ORDER SIGNED BY A JUDGE. YOUR EX CAN WAIT UNTIL YOU GO BACK TO WORK AND THEN COLLECT THE FULL AMOUNT YOU OWED!!! IT IS NOT HER MONEY TO AGREE TO LOWERING, IT IS THE CHILD'S, SO HER AGREEMENT OUTSIDE AN ORDER IS NOT ENFORCEABLE AND WILL COME BACK TO BITE YOU!!!!! SEE : steps to lowering support

:

 DON'T FORGET TO TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES & VIDEOS OF THE CHILDREN WITH YOU AND YOUR OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS ENJOYING CHRISTMAS! THESE WILL BE SOME OF YOUR BEST EXHIBITS! YOU NEED LOTS OF PICTURES OF EVERY VISITATION, BIRTHDAY PARTY YOU GIVE FOR YOUR CHILDREN, ETC! ORGANIZE THEM CHRONOLOGICALLY IN A SPECIAL RETRIEVABLE FILE.

 CHILD SUPPORT AWARDS FOR PRIVATE V STATE COLLEGE TUITION:

.Normally tuition to a state school level only is awarded even if attending a private school. State tuition is regarded as reasonable tuition if your original divorce judgment says you agree to pay college expenses but does not say which type of school to which you agree. Gather tuition information from your nearest university where the child could be living at home! HINT: USE TUITION FIGURES OF THE JUDGE'S ALMA MATER if it was a state university.

 IMPORTANT REPEAT POSTING

CHRISTMAS VISITATION .If you anticipate problems getting your court ordered visitation see your lawyer NOW to have papers prepared . Inform your ex in writing with return receipt when you will be picking up the children. Take along a witness (not your girlfriend or new wife), take along a video recorder for the witness to record the exchange. Where legal have a pocket voice recorder in your jacket turned on. If the ex refuses to allow visitation file a police report immediately. DO NOT yell or threaten, let her do that on video and immediately serve her your already prepared motion to hold her in contempt. In some states visitation denial is a criminal offense. Insist she be charged. Go to the prosecutor or news media if necessary claiming men are being discriminated against by the prosecutor's not enforcing state laws. Cops don't like to get involved but MUST if denial/interference is a criminal offense. Regardless, make sure a written police report of your complaint is kept on file by the police. DO NOT ARGUE IN FRONT OF YOUR KIDS (EVER). BE CALM. Is the ex is violating a court order that specifically spells out your visitation schedule, leaving no ambiguity, she should be held responsible for payment of your attorney fees. If your order is not specific, get a new lawyer. The TV media would love to film a story about kids being emotionally abused by not being allowed to see their father for Christmas and local authorities standing by ,not protecting the kids!!!! Set it up in advance! Keep a copy of the tape for use in court.

If you had cancer you would not seek out treatment or advice from a cheap Doctor, you wouldn't go to a non cancer specialist Doctor, and certainly not to a person who wasn't a Doctor and whose only knowledge is based on only one case (his own) of cancer!! Is your children's future any less important to you???

Cook County, IL. litigation  WARNING

When possible litigate in Skokie vice Downtown

Downtown Judges often require appointment of evaluators and GAL attorneys raising your IMMEDIATE PRE TRIAL costs by OVER $15,000!

Certain Chicago attorneys file many spurious and repetitive pleadings to increase attorney fees (sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars) to force fathers to settle!!! Their fees are then considered part of a child support award and can be enforced by locking up a father! Avoid litigating downtown!

Certain evaluators are sometimes favored who always find the mother should have custody. Check out an evaluator's reputation and credentials before agreeing to a Judge's recommendation.

 

 

Illinois custody procedures were changed JULY 1, 2006

New Supreme Court rules apply to all custody cases, setting time limits and requiring new pleadings.
