I have a situation where approximately two months ago a Judge has giving permanent custody of my special need daughter to a dead beat dad the father has no emotional ties with her and he is a complete stranger to her. The court and father have refused to give me any access to her. I have been her primary caretaker for six years with the father being absent by choice. I have not been declared as an unfit mother. I have started an petition on change.org and ask for you to please sign. here's is the link below:

Tina, it appears you neglected to read my post - your link was not working. You also need to remove the link it is against the policy of this site to allow votes, petitions, etc, that serve in the interests of the poster. If you do not remove the link, I will remove the post.

I have no interest in protecting deadbeats, and no interest on reading up on the law in Florida. I do NOT, however, believe that you are as innocent as you claim to be, as no judge would remove ALL rights of a mother without any cause. You have clearly, at some point, demonstrated contempt of a court ordered visitation, and had full intentions of committing the same again. If you have continually been in contempt of a custody order, yes, they do take the child away from you. It is called parental alienation. Do I support a father who pays no child support? No. Do I support a mother who continually interferes with a father's visitation, even if he has not paid child support? No. There is no way this is a one off contempt.

There is no winner in this situation, least of all the child. But the child also wasn't getting a relationship with her father while she was with you.

After all, we all know there is your story and his story, and the truth probably lays somewhere in between. I wasn't born yesterday. They do not remove a child from a parent's custody and totally deny visitation without some evidence of a good reason. Continual contempt of court is all they needed.

And please, continuing to patronise me by overuse of my name will get you no-where, dear.

Reason why the child was taken is because of illiterate and uneducated people like you. If you would have check the dockets correctly you would seen where he had two paternity cases in which he dismiss his adjudicated rights in the first case. According to the Florida Statue the father cannot dismiss his adjudicated rights with his own DNA analysis that is a fact Jodi. Next, Jodi according to the Florida Statue if father does not support the child well-being he has no rights to the child Jodi that is fact she is six years old. Jodi since you want to protect a deadbet dad I was not properly severed with a summons that is fact Jodi. It appears you neglected to read my petition there are many parents not just mother but fathers, grandparents and caregivers that have received unequally justice. Before you make a statement Jodi check the Florida Statues here’s the link:

Hm, interesting, there are records of you having been summoned to court several times by the father for visitation and contempt thereof but not turned up and apparently refused the visitations. It appears the father is not absent by choice. Why did you go against your parenting orders? THIS is why you lost your child. Your excuse that he doesn't pay child support simply doesn't matter. Child support and visitation are two totally different things, you CANNOT withhold visitation just because he doesn't pay. His child is not a commodity to be rented, bought or sold. If there are no orders for child support, that is your problem, you have to file for it.

OK, first things first, you can't post a link to a personal petition here, it is against the solicitation policy (although it isn't working anyway).

Having said that, however, judges don't go around removing ALL the rights of the mother unless there is some reason or evidence he has seen. So answer me this. What evidence was presented, or what was written in the judgement, as the reason for this. There would be something there. Fine, it may be untrue, but there is something the judge has seen or heard that has led to this decision.
