U.K.: Boys Lagging Girls in Early Education

July 28, 2016 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

An important new study of British pre-school children finds boys to be significantly underperforming girls in every area of the country, in every socio-economic category, in every ethnicity and race. The report sounds the alarm calling the consequences for boys “potentially devastating and lifelong.” Here’s an article on the report (Save the Children, 7/18/16).

 

Shared Parenting Bill Passes Massachusetts House!

Call to Action: We Have One Week to Get it Through the Senate!

In an unprecedented victory, the Massachusetts House of Representatives passed a strong shared parenting bill last Saturday. This is the result of over three years of hard work by National Parents Organization and others.

This is the first time a shared parenting bill has passed either chamber of the Massachusetts legislature, and is HUGE. We are now on the threshold of passing this bill!

Now we have to get it through the Senate, and we only have until Friday to get this done. The outcome depends on You and You Alone! If you want to see this bill become law, you must do ALL of the following things immediately:

 

The State of Parental Alienation in U.K. Courts

July 27, 2016 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

Will wonders never cease? The Guardian newspaper has never been a friend to fathers or to reasoned discourse on issues plaguing family courts and the unfortunate parents and children who find themselves there. This article is different (The Guardian, 7/14/16). It’s a pretty sound piece on parental alienation. It gets the basics right and quotes calls for change in British courts. It quotes but a single loony PA denier only to rebut him in the next paragraph. All in all, well done.

 

British Courts Limiting Alimony?

July 25, 2016 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

Are courts clamping down on alimony cases? Are they limiting the time during which payors have to pay? That’s what this article claims is happening in courts in the United Kingdom (Telegraph, 7/20/16). This one agrees (AOL, 7/21/16).

The end of the 'meal ticket' divorce is nigh. Courts are increasingly choosing to limit the length of time that the ex-wives of rich men (or ex husbands of rich women) can pick up a hefty monthly payment from their former spouse. If they want to maintain the lifestyle they had when they were married, then they'll have to get a job...

 

Alabama Supreme Court Ducks Constitution in Adoption Case

July 24, 2016 by Robert Franklin, Esq, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization

If the Alabama trial court’s and Supreme Court’s decisions to ignore fraud on the mother’s part in this case weren’t bad enough, their decisions to refuse to consider the father’s constitutional claims were every bit as bad. Recall from yesterday’s piece that the mother had given birth in secret and told the father three days afterward that the child had lived but a very short time after delivery. She even forged a birth certificate so saying. All agreed that she did so for the sole purpose of deceiving the father into not filing the necessary notice with the Alabama Putative Father Registry. The facts of the matter aren’t disputed, but for reasons that remain mysterious, her procurement by fraud of his non-registration got a pass from both courts.
