More Problems of the “Fathers’ Rights Movement called out”
I was given this video by a member of my lobby team in Ohio. Listen to it carefully.
HB4113 was unconstitutional on face. It limited NCP time to 35% maximum (there were a series of bill introduced that year that were pushed by NPO) and many backed them thinking they were good by claiming that “it is more that we have now.”
US Constitution – 14th Amendment
Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
HB185 was a poorly written presumption. Listen to his comments on presumption and their legal effect.
The DHF guy speaking on lost funds was incorrect on his presumption of what would happen if equal custody was the law of the land. Even in a week on/ week off custody situation one parent will always have a majority of time over a year. 7 x 52 = 364. Recognizing that might be an issue years ago while writing bills for Ohio I added a clause that one home could be designated residential for welfare purposes.
This guy's comments on the legal effect of a presumption of equal custody are spot on. Ohio has had a presumption of equal custody since 1984 and the awards of custody have steadily remained the same at close to 85% towards the mother. He does echo what I have been saying for years as this notion has been continually pushed by too many.
While many of you still fall for the trap that a presumption is all you need, I just finished (do not ask to see any of them since the last a bill was released prior to introduction, it was blocked by National Parents Organization):
1. A complete bill for Ohio that will be introduced in the House and the Senate
2. A complete bill for Texas
3. A new bill for Nebraska that will be a first of its kind (Secret until after the elections)
4. Hawaii is in the works now and expected to be done by the end of the month.
HB 4113 & 185 was slated to change family law in Illinois, forever. What happened?
