It is happening to me in Jackson County. My wife has abused my son due to her mental problems and the judge keeps making choices in her favor.

Men get a bad break in Jackson County. Doesn't matter whether the mother is mental, druggy, or whatever, Jackson County percentage wise gives the mother the kids, even when the father has a stable home life.

The lawyer just rolls over when they represent the fathers and just take the father's money and doesn't help get the kids. Or they are bought off by the other lawyer or whatever.

I heard that some judge in Jackson County gives custody to mothers due to himself being given to his mother when he was little. All fathers aren't bad. Hopefully you didn't get that judge on your case. Hopefully he will realize what your x-wife is before it is too late for your son. Good luck.

I hope that for some of the children who have mothers who don't really care or who are mentally ill, judges look at the fathers and see they love their children with all their heart and will give them the best possible life. Good luck, I hope someone listens to you before your child is injuried by his mother.

The decision should always be in the best interest of the child or children.

Are the decisions made in the best interest of the child or the political favors between lawyers.

I GUESS SINCE NO ONE WILL LISTEN THAT THIS CHILD IS BEING HURT BY HIS MOTHER. I GUESS IT WILL TAKE NEWS MEDIA ATTENTION TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THIS IS GOING ON. ISN'T IT A SHAME IT HAS TO TAKE SOMETHING LIKE MEDIA ATTENTION TO HELP PEOPLE SEE HE NEEDS TO BE IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT WITH HIS DAD.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WHY FATHERS CAN'T GET A BREAK WHEN GETTING THEIR CHILDREN. IF THIS LADY HAS A PROBLEM, THEN WHY DOES THIS WOMAN HAVE ANY RIGHTS TO THIS BOY. WHAT GOING TO HAPPEN IS WE WILL HEAR ABOUT SOMETHING HAPPENING TO HIM IF SHE INDEED HAS PROBLEMS. NO WONDER YOU HEAR ABOUT SO MANY PEOPLE RUNNING OFF WITH THEIR KIDS. THE FATHERS DON'T GET A FAIR BREAK. i'M 65 YEARS OLD, AND WONDER IF TIMES HAVE CHANGED THEN WHY DOESN'T THE COURT SYSTEM CATCH UP. LET THE MAN HAVE HIS SON. MAYBE HE WILL GROW UP BEING A GOOD JUDGE SOMEDAY.

i think it should be in the best interest of the child and this coming from a mother who has two beautiful kids but got mixed up with drugs and the wrong people and my youngest kids dad got custody with no prob and i did not put up a fight cause if he did not love or care for his son he would have left him in that kind of enviroment and i respect him he has been the best dad to my son than i could have asked for it but both my kids were taken but i knew i had to get better and straighten my life before i could even try to get them back well it took rehab and most important my higher power which is god to get me off that mess and to make me open my eyes to what was infront of me the two most precious angels that is my life and they deserve better and needs a mom that will be the best mom they deserve and i am thankful for my sons dad its been almost a year since we went to court and now with both my children we have joint custody so there are some of the best dads out there. and the courts do whats in best interest of the child or if they didnt i would not have never had to fight for two years to get my kids back, there is just different situations for all split families.

Please file an action against the court for sexual discrimination. 20 years ago I lost my daughter that way. Don't let it happen to you.

We'll sexual discrimination has won again. Judge gave custody of the fathers son to the mother despite her abuse to him, wreaking him in a car, not seeking medical attention. Boy did the mom pull the wool over that judges eyes. All she wants is to use the boy as a pawn again the father. She already is going against court orders not letting him talk to his son. She has told the boy she hates him and wants him to die. I hope for everyone who let this happen that nothing happens to that child. If she indeed hasn't been going to church to put up a front for the judge, then why is she still keeping the boy from his father. Judges wake up. These lawyers make the most abusive and horrible mothers look good for you. Then the children suffer because they are put with the parent that does not have their best interest at heart. This mother only wants the money to help raise the other newborn she had out of wedlock. Maybe someone needs to take a stand and show Jackson County what kind of mother they have gave this child to and then they will have to explain why this discission was made on a abusive mother who has hit her child making places on his head, body and private area. A mother who has beat him, told him she wants him to die, she hates him. A mother who the child hates her and wants to go home to his father. What kind of court system do we have in Jackson County? A bias and blind one who from the get go was going to give this child to his mother dispite what she has done. She has given him cigarettes even after she was fined for selling cigarettes to a minor. The child is only 5years old. Imagine what the court has done for this child already. Given him to an abusive mother, who says she hates him and wants him to die. What kind of childhood do you think he will have now? What kind of an adult do you think he will turn into? Thanks Jackson County Judical system. You have managed to ruin another child in our county and threw him to the wolfs. What kind of hell will this child have to go through with a mother with mental issues who went to Stevenson park last month and beat the heck out of a young man in front of witnesses while the child was present to watch. Who let the child run freely around the park, did I mention was only 5 years old. Who let him get bug bites, bruises etc all over his body. This is who the court gave this sweet child to. God bless the father who has had to try and keep what time he has with his child wonderful. He is trying to show that everyone is not like this and that eventually he can live with his dad and have a normal life. Look what this court has done. I hope that what little time every other weekend the father has will help keep the little boy grounded until something can be done. Judge if you had looked between the lines you would have seen that she was made to look good in front of you. Since I am only a friend of the father's family, I can only watch while the court has torn this child away from a loving family environment with his father and thrown that little boy into a nightmare. What kind of damage will this do to this child? I felt the need to vent this. I've watched this family and this child go through this, screaming and yelling when the father had to take him back to his mother. He says he hates his mother and her family for taking him from his father and his family. Maybe child protection should watch out for the mothers family every step of the way. Watching them to ensure this child stays safe from his mother and her family.

As a grandmama myself, I believe God will eventually get your son to his father. Only the Lord knows what that mama and her family are doing to that boy. It's a shame that the legal system is blinded by lawyers taking on cases for misfit mothers who hurt and use children for a monthly check. I heard the mother spent the child support on Tatoo's instead of the child. The child did without clothing until grandparents brought them so it wouldn't intervere with her using money for her gain. I hear she has had another child with another man. Wonder if he knows how violent she is. Wonder if they have gone after him for support support so she can support the other daughters with children that has been had by the other sister in the family. I hope the other child is gotten by his dad soon and gotten out of that mess with his mother.

What is this world coming to when a mother can hit her child, do meth, transport drugs for people and still be able to keep her children in this mess. When is Alabama going to come into this century. I guess when the men judges retire and a new generation is in. Fathers are not even being considered for nothing but child support. When is alabama going to realize that some of the mothers in this county are bad and do not need their children. Especially when they manipulate the children into telling lies to get even with father for divorcing them.

Most likely because most of those So called fathers only want a way to get even with their x and have no genuine interest in the child. I will give you odds that 99% of the Fathers that are crying about custody are behind on their child support. They should try getting caught up on their child support and then coming to court. When they come to court a judge knows the status of their child support and they also know that the fathers lawyer is getting paid with money that was supposed to be paid in child support. Guys like this are not going to give up their pleasures to pay a lawyer but they will short their child support.

Im talking about the real fathers who knows that the children need to be with their fathers. I guess this is why I see fathers go without their sons--This kind of thinking that all fathers are bad. The old fashion way of thinking in Jackson County.

i had to go to our govener Bob Ryley to get my girls i dont think it is just daddys that jackson co has a problem with.if dady has money or friends in the courthouse he can take the kids most of the time. i think everyone should keep in mind this is a living little person that Both parent say they LOVE... just because they cantget alone dosent mean this child/children should have to chose who he/she loves the most.i think we as parents should let our kids know and feel it is ok that they love both parent. however , i also know it is not always safe for a child/children to be with some parent,but it still ok if the kid loves that parent,but lovingly explain to the child/children why it isnt safe or good for them to be with the other parent.in short im saying we shouldnt poison our children just because we are bitter or hurting and gender dosent make a good parent.it the one who puts their childs needs above their own,loves the child,supports the child with all its needs such as a home,food,clothes,medical needs and so on.i think if you can do all this and still let your child feel free to love the other parent openly you are a good parent,besides why should you as the adult be telling your child/children about mommy and daddyso personal business.i gave my kids to God and He gave them back to me ,but Not in jackson co.i had to move to cullman co to get them back.good luck and i will be praying for Gods will to be done.
