Custody Planning

Fathers Club

Our Custody Planning Clubs are for Fathers who are at all stages of preparing for, or are fighting for custody.  This group is designed to allow Fathers to share, network, plan and process what is truely necessary for the future of their families. When a relationship dissolves, it isn't IF custody will be challenged but WHEN.  

It is true that the justice system can appear inherently one-sided in favor of the parent that will inevitably be determined to be the custodial parent.  Compounding this perception are the antiquated societal roles and protections honored in many courtrooms across the country.  Considering that most children's initial caregiver is the mother and most courts heavily consider that maternal relationship when deciding a child's "ability to bond,"  Fathers often walk out of courtrooms having lost time with their children, control of their parenting, and find themselves with the perception that courts don't have the true best interest of their children in mind at all.

Here is the question: are there really two sets of rules governing how custody is divided, or is it just one set shaped in the image of maternal caregiving? We believe it's the latter.  There are not two sets of rules, just one very subjective set of rules played by teams- one at a professional level while the other team plays on a collegiate level.  It's basically the equivalent of the Dallas Cowboys playing the Howard University Bison.  Now, it's just football but it's clear that each team is out of the other's league.  Here is the key.  Just because they are out of each others league does not mean that members of the Cowboys weren't once college athletes nor does it mean that Howard's athletes can't progress to the professional level.  What I'm basically stating is yes, the rules are the same however mothers have the advantage of experience and practice as it pertains to custody while Fathers often find themselves learning on game day which by this point is too late.

It was once said that a wise man learns from the mistakes of others while a fool learns from his own.  Custody Planning Groups are for fathers to come together to share, develop, work on and implement strategies that lead to better outcomes when fighting for custody.  Groups meet virtually, bi-monthly.

The objective of our groups is to provide immediate information and support to our Fathers/parents, using the valued experience of other parents.  There is never a charge to participate in any of our clubs however club members are asked to support the movement with minimal monthly dues.
