Re: this is why fathers walk away
      03/28/11 10:40 AM

The divorce that my X filed (irreconcilable differences/unsupportable) was like an atomic bomb going off. At the conclusion of the divorce I was granted 45/55 custody as I had demonstrated that I was a great father and I had done nothing other than "you don't make me feel loved or appreciated enough". After everything was legally settled and all of the damage she created in my and little son's (2 years old at that time) life had been irrevocably done and finalized. 2 weeks after our divorce (that I did not want) was finalizes, she dismissed her current lawyer and then hired another lawyer and together those 2 filed perjured paperwork to amend my visitation saying that I was a drug addict, that I was an alcoholic, that I frequently beat people up and that I had emotional problems. I spent all of my savings about $70k fighting her in court trying to keep the custody I was granted and all that I got from that process was a lesson; when it comes to family court in South Texas (Hidalgo County), whomever has more $$ will win (she is a physician), whomever has corrupt connections and can buy favors will win, you can lie and get away with it. My son and I never asked to not see each other everyday, to go to sleep and wake up everyday in 1 blessed home under 1 blessed roof, his Mom asked for that and yet she has much more time with him than I do. Why does a loving and responsible father have to lose time with his child when his X wife decides she no longer loves him? I don't understand how our system can justify that? I lost my job at a large pharmaceutical [censored] in a 50% ATS downsizing, I had to short-sell the small home that I bought for my son and I after the X kept the home that I built for our retirement and for our son to own as an adult. I sold my cars to keep the little house going for and long as I could (mistake). I had to settle forstandard visitation as I could no longer fight in court due to my savings being exhausted. Except for my son, I wish that I had never met that woman. But truthfully, my son is the greatest gift I have ever been given so I guess it is all worthwhile. My son is the joy in my heart and God gave him to me. Thank you father. Code:
