Parental Responsibility

November 6, 2011 in Alaska, family rights, justice, parental rights, termination of parental rights, TPR, Visitation

Just exactly what rights and responsibilities do parents have to a child? We all know the laws concerning child support, child custody and visitation are unfair and unjust but still they persist.

Just today found on Lawyers.com was an interesting question:

To Terminate Fathers Rights, Or Not Too?

A military man and his wife of 4-years took the ex-wife to court for the military man to claim his parental rights to the child, because he has been paying $491 a month in child support, but has never had the opportunity to see his child. He has two other children in the home and he is serving his country in Afghanistan. [Continue Reading]

Rights?

Speak Out Against Injustice!

You would think an issue like this would be rare, but it happens all the time. Some cases are so egregious that it can make you crazy. For instance, I know of one man in his mid-30’s, he has 3 children by two different women. His first child was born to a wife of 10-years, he was ordered to pay over $700.00 a month in child support.

His two subsequent children were born of his relationship with his live-in girl-friend of several years. When they split the court ordered the father to pay $25 a month (for both children).

You simply can’t support 2 children on $25 a month, even if you assume both parents split the cost.

Instead, why don’t they use a regional formula, sort of like the ones they use to distribute welfare benefits and food stamps. The county office needs to figure out the average cost of caring for a child in their county and allocate half to each parent. Why should some children live very comfortably, when other children barely have food to eat?

There simply has to be a better way. A way that helps ensure the needs of the children are being met.

Alaska’s War on the Family

August 16, 2009 in Alaska, child abuse, CPS, false accusation, family court

My Child Lives in Fear!

I really need some help here. I have been accused of fracturing my infant’s skull, although I have reports saying that doctors don’t suspect child abuse.

Office of Children’s Services (OCS) took away my kids after I tried to protect them by sending them to Washington, to be with a woman who adopted my son.

Now they are in a foster home in Washington waiting to be sent back up here. Mind you they are 2 and 3 months old. CPS in Alaska has lied in court telling the judge they have no information on the person who had my kids — when just the day before they had talked to the CPS worker down there, who said the kids were safe and well taken care of.

Please point me in the right direction. I do have a past CPS history but I didn’t hurt my baby. Please help!

Kenai Foster Care

August 16, 2009 in Alaska, child abuse, CPS, foster care

My Child Lives in Fear!

My son is in foster care due to some behavior with alcohol, while I was away at work and he was with his mother.

The foster parents drink in front of him and go out drinking on weekends and sometimes drive with my 17-year-old son in the vehicle.

I complained and nothing was done. The foster parents then moved my son in with their 25-year-old daughter, who drinks and smokes pot and has a one-year-old child of her own.

I complained but nothing was done about. I’m told they can drink. I followed them for about 2 months, they continue to partake of the bar scene, so, one night when they leave the bar I call the police.

Well they didn’t get a DWI but his probation office is now telling my son that she is going to violate his probation because I turned the foster parents in.

This is ALASKA FOSTER CARE in Kenai.
