Thank you for participating
Thank you for writing to KSAZ FOX 10 concerning its biased report Deputies Round Up Deadbeat Dads. Research clearly shows that most so-called "deadbeats' don"t pay because they are unable to do so. The recession has made this even more dramatically true. Yet there was no hint of balance in the piece--not one word to contradict the "deadbeat dad" stereotype being pushed. This is unfortunately common in the media. Fathers & Families has made hundreds of media appearances (newspaper columns, radio & TV) contradicting the malicious "deadbeat dad" stereotype and telling the truth about the child support system. Please contribute to the organization which fights for you by clicking here. Together with you in the love of our children, Glenn Sacks, MA Executive Director, Fathers & Families Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S. Founder, Chairman of the Board, Fathers & Families
