A parent’s comments:

I am frustrated as I continue to discover the ways pro se litigants do not have equal access to the law, and are in fact penalized for not being represented by an attorney.  Read more…Suggestion to have child care available in courthouse

On Sept. 19, 2015, Adele Guadalupe gave an excellent description of FACTS and its reasons for existing.  She said, “Let me be  clear.  I am not addressing the large majority of men who are decent good fathers.  This presentation pertains to the narcissistic, controlling  people who have put their own needs above their children.  Also, the fact that we get over 95% of our calls from moms who are literally devastated by the Family Court System.”

Below is a statement by Cynthia Wheeler, reflecting her opinion but also those of many of us.  This website is moderated, so if you want to say something, please email it to us for consideration and mention that you are interested in being “published.”

Hello Everyone:

I just got off the phone with Francisco-Javier P. Digon-Greer, Esq. Assistant Director, Programs Division Florida Bar Administrator to the Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice The Florida Bar. I am going hard, requesting the Commission create a subcommittee composed of people it was designed to help. Of course he gave me the brush off along the lines of the Commission was created and the members were appointed by Florida Supreme Court blah, blah, blah, wonk, wonk, wonk……

After thinking about this Commission it came to me that we actually need a member on the Commission reflective of the demographic it was created for in addition to a subcommittee. In my brain it is like having the NAACP without black people, or National Organization for Women (NOW) with no women members, a fathers right advocacy group without fathers. In my brain it simply doesn’t match.

I am treated like a kid! WHY? WHY? WHY?

We have to take the limited things we are given and use them to our advantage. I personally think the Commission is a Public Relations move to convey they are doing something. Being busy and being productive are not the same. The skeptic in me thinks this Commission is just to give the impression something is being done and probably a way to justify spending some tax dollars. I have not tracked how this Commission is funded because I have been busy requesting they create a subcommittee. (HINT, HINT if someone wants to volunteer and do a post about the funding it would be great.) We all understand looking busy when we are supposed to be working let’s make sure this Commission isn’t just “looking busy”.

I need everyone to email this Commission and advocate for the creation of a subcommittee and a board member reflective of the demographic it represents. This is our opportunity to create policy and procedures without going through Democrat/Republican drama etc.

LETS MAKE A DOLLAR OUT OF 15 CENTS. I mean let’s make sure this Commission is productive and doing what it was created to do, as opposed to just another PR move to convey a falsity someone is working to solve HUGE problems present in civil courts aka family courts. If you are unaware and have no direct knowledge of the HUGE problems present in family courts you are blessed. I hope you will never have to personally experience the circus of the family court system but please do a quick google and you will learn how huge of a problem the family court system is in Florida and the entire United States.

PM, email. Call me if you want to put in work and organize to bring about changes.
