Equal Parenting Rights and Responsibilities
Organized by: Demetri Ambers
After my girlfriend of ten years and I split she decided to keep my daughter from me out of spite. In our state (OH) it is perfectly legal to do so until the father spends a fortune attaining rights through the court. I grew up without a father and so did she so she should understand the damage not having a father has on someone. I want to fight to get our rights in Ohio updated to equal rights from birth. I also want harsher penalties for parents who do not care for their child. For example for fathers who abandon their children jail time , taxes and higher child support rates. The family is the most important aspect of society in my opinion. I want the laws of my state to place more responsibility on parents and allow for fathers like myself to have the rights we deserve and time we deserve with a child at birth. I would appreciate any help in reaching this goal.
