I generally like reading Violent Acres. I don’t try to figure out who V. is, or if she is lying or not. I don’t care. I usually enjoy the story.
But I hate it when people say that a father has no chance in hell of getting physical custody. First, I don’ think it’s true (I have physical custody of my kids, and I have had it for over 6 years). Second, I think it’s sending a message to men to not even bother trying.
And THAT bothers me!
There are men right now reading who have taken a trip through family court and know, first hand, how freaking difficult it is to do what Henry Smith did. It is currently the year 2007 and most men donâ€™t have a shot in hell at full physical custody of their children. Henry Smith, on the other hand, won full physical custody of a 2 month old baby girl back in the 70â€™s. The fact that this happened very glaringly shows what the court system thought of my Mother. Apparently, they were not amused by her.
