Courts unfairly cut fathers out of their children's lives [Letter]

October 13, 2014

I fully agree with commentator Ned Holstein's view that parenthood generally should be shared ("Joint custody should be the rule, not the exception," Oct. 8).

As a father of two who fights for his children only because their mother wishes to control them, the courts all to often allow this to happen to great quality dads.

Fathers are being cut out of our children's lives for the financial gain of others — mothers and their attorneys.
