    Are a father's visitation rights fair or adequate as a whole?

    The victimization of the American father is taboo and not often talked about. As the court system divides families for profit:

    1) Does it really have the child's best interest at heart?

    2) Has the time come to revise the archaic rule of law "pay for play"?

    Traditionally the court system has leaned in favor of the mother and continues to do so. By the same token if a married woman has a child many states automatically legally bind the child to the husband.
    There have been instances where the so called father learns he is NOT the father and ends up stuck paying child support for another man's child! (That's a whole other issue.)
    Essentially the wife has committed fraud.
    The state/county says: It's in the child's best interest stick to it him.
    Everyone deserves to know who their father is!
    Men wrongfully charged for child support should be paid back.
    More and more fathers are winning custody battles. There are more "father's rights" organizations springing up all the time.
    Unfortunately failed relationships and divorces often lead to a desire by one or both people to hurt the other.
    Using the children a pawns to do damage is not uncommon.

      Any parent worthy of custody and/or his/her relationship with his/her children would NEVER use a child or children as a pawn/pawns.  They just would not.  And, they would never use a child/children to hurt the other parent.  Again, they just wouldn't

      And yet it's not all that uncommon.
      Lots of men have said when they were coming to see their children the ex makes sure the kids aren't there. Some exes hate it if he's got a (new girlfriend) or wife. They may even ask for more child support.

    Visitation with the father and in fact deep involvement, assuming a father who isn't violently abusive or an addict or mentally ill, is important to a child's well being.
    A child without a father in the home is three times more likely to become mentally ill, homeless, an addict, join a gang, drop out of school, go to jail. The odds are worse when the father isn't involved at all.
    Visitation is important to keep kids on track, which is why every other weekend isn't really enough. And more fathers need to be given 50-50 custody and full custody.
