There's a huge difference in parents who GIVE UP their rights and parents whose rights are TAKEN AWAY by a court system that refuses to recognize Parental Alienation, a term coined by Dr. Richard Gardner.

The headline in this story contradicts a sentence in the story:

Headline reads: "Parents who give up their rights.."

yet, further inside the story it is stated:

(..the fathers argued that their responsibility to pay child support ended when their parental rights were TERMINATED."

So, did they GIVE up their rights or were they TERMINATED?

Either way of course, they are still obligated to pay child support.

But, it's a horse of a different color when a parent (usually the father) is ommitted from their child's life at the request of a mother bent on hatred.

ALL TOO OFTEN, there are great injustices bestowed upon the father.

If you have a child you must pay for it. No matter what!

Of course, I totally agree, but there is cases where the father is denied even a picture of his child that he supports. The system doesn't always work well for the parties involved.

Indeed!

Some so-called "mothers" need their children taken away in order to stop them from using the children as bargaining tools! Some women are utterly repulsive and will stoop to the lowest level to be vindictive, even at the cost of their own children which they claim to love. SAD!!

Ultimately, the only person that they end up hurting are the children themselves. It's truly sickening!

I agree that there are some mothers and fathers that use the children to get back at the other parent. My now ex played the "dead mommy game". Family court refused to hear the therapist when I finally got a lawyer willing to bring them in. Instead the court threatened to take my children from me because the teacher of the "agressive parenting class" stated that the children needed to be taken and the ex and I get more counceling. I have never used my children against him. I have the proof of the ex and his mistress playing games with my children to alienate them from me. I have the proof of him calling me an "f'n b c" on the phone and his mistress then tells my child to leave the room. I also have proof of the mistress calling me a "w" to another of the chidlren. He has no proof against me because I have not done anything he is claiming. He has lied in the courtroom and nothing is done. Lewisburg family court is a joke. It all depends on who you know and who is in who's pocket. This father needs at the very least to get suppervised visitation but the court will hear nothing of the evidence I have. None of the children want to go and hear their mother called nasty names yet the ex claims that the reason they do not want to go is because I must be saying bad things about him. I love my children and because I do the ex is able to hurt me everytime he hurts the children. He does not care what it does to the chidlren as long as he can get back at me. The laws and the court do not care.
