Los Angeles, CA--My recent His Side with Glenn Sacks radio commentary for KLAA AM 830 in Los Angeles discusses a recent victory for the rights of military parents. The federal Servicemembers Civil Relief Act of 2003 (SCRA) (formerly known as the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act) protects deployed soldiers against civil legal actions. Perhaps the biggest problem deployed parents face is that judges often do not interpret the SCRA as applying to family law proceedings. Recently Mike Robinson of the California Alliance for Families and Children announced that a new federal law will specifically extend the protections of the SCRA to family law proceedings and eliminate default judgments for deployed service personnel.

Los Angeles, CA--My recent His Side with Glenn Sacks radio commentary for KLAA AM 830 in Los Angeles criticizes Joe Biden's S1515. The bill will amend Biden"s Violence Against Women Act to create the National Domestic Violence Volunteer Attorney Network Act--an extensive network of volunteer attorneys to help abused women. The attorneys would provide free legal help in forging divorce or separation agreements and in winning child custody. S.1515 will do some good in aiding abused low-income women. The problem is that the bill will also greatly exacerbate the already widespread problem of false domestic violence claims being used to strip decent, loving fathers of custody of their children. There is no mechanism within the bill to distinguish between false accusations and legitimate ones. To listen to the commentary, click here or on the audio button below. To learn more, see my co-authored column Biden"s Misguided S1515 Will Exacerbate Domestic Violence System"s Problems (Philadelphia Daily News, 12/7/07). The National Organization for Women has a campaign in support of the bill, and the bill is also supported by the American Bar Association and the Family Violence Prevention Fund. The bill can be seen here. Biden's pitch for the bill from his defunct presidential campaign can be seen here.

Los Angeles, CA--My recent His Side with Glenn Sacks radio commentary for KLAA AM 830 in Los Angeles discusses the issue of the rights of lesbian "social mothers'–women who agreed to employ a sperm donor so that they could have children with their lesbian partners, who are the biological mothers. When two lesbians agree to have a child together, and when the child has bonded with both his or her biological mother and his or her social mother, I believe that the relationship between the child and the social mother should be protected. I also believe that the biological mother has a responsibility to her children and to her former partner to hold up her end of the deal with the partner with whom she created the child, and that courts should hold her to her commitment.

I discussed Parenting magazine's new 'Mad at Dads' study on the Kathryn Zox Show on WMET AM 1160 in Washington DC yesterday. Kathryn and her co-host Lorin Beller Blake both feel that stay-at-home mothers are put upon and fathers are fortunate to be able to work and "be out there in the real world" instead of staying at home. To listen to the audio of the show, click here. I come on at 16 minutes in. I thought the most interesting part of the show was the way Zox and Blake reacted with some disbelief at my feelings about my three years as a stay-at-home dad after my daughter was born (begins at 22 minutes in.) At some level Zox and Blake seem convinced that stay-at-home moms get a raw deal and work much harder than breadwinner dads. Having been a stay-at-home dad with two kids during the years when they need the most intensive of care, I can tell you that this is nonsense.

I'm quoted on dads as primary caregivers in nationally-syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's new column Harried, with Children. Alkon, whose columns appear in 100 newspapers, begins with a letter from "Stay-Late-At-Work Dad," who writes:
Women complain about how hard it is being a stay-at-home mom. After getting divorced, I discovered I could clean the entire house in a few hours...Men work long hours to support their families, only to be told they aren't doing enough around the house. I think being a mom is important and value stay-at-home moms, but let's talk turkey about who really has the hard job, okay?
Alkon responds:
