Should a father be denied the rights to see his child on the sole basis of being unemployed and living with a parent?
- The mother is threatening to deny visitation in direct violation of the court approved parenting plan.
- The father is unable to find work in an area that still has a 25%+ unemployment rate.
- The father has been unemployed for 3 years.
- The father is living with a parent because of unemployment. He would be homeless otherwise, but he wishes to have a stable environment while he pursues a college degree and for those times when he has the child.
- The child is never in harms way, either through actions, inactions, or words, while in the father's care. The father takes special care to make time for play, academic education, and moral lessons for the child.
- The father relies on food stamps for survival, but does not partake in any other public assistance or "social" programs.
- The father cannot afford a lawyer to fight for his rights.
*UPDATE* Thanks to all for their input. I spoke with a law firm who was willing to help me for free. They placed a phone call to her and must've scared her good, because she called today to arrange for me to pick my son up tomorrow. I'm so EXCITED!!!!
