Thank You for Participating in our Campaign to Pass HB 2348 to Protect Disabled Fathers from Family Court Abuses
Thank you for filling out our campaign form--Fathers & Families is now emailing and faxing your letter to all members of the Arizona House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee to express your support for HB 2348 Last year Fathers & Families successfully worked to pass California SB 285, which protected disabled veterans' VA disability compensation. In addition to Arizona, F & F is working with advocates and legislators on similar legislation in Texas and New Mexico, and is laying the groundwork for legislation in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, and Illinois. It also appears that a failed 2009 legislative effort in Iowa has been revived by CA. SB 285's passage. In addition, a U.S. Congressman has taken up this issue and we are helping him craft a federal bill which we expect will be introduced in the near future. The abuses being committed in family court concerning disabled parents' VA benefits remind many F & F supporters of their own experiences in family court--a lack of respect for the law, violations of due process, fathers (and sometimes mothers) being financially plundered and shook down for money they don't owe, etc. F & F is creating real, tangible family court reform today. Give 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
