Losing The Sweetie Girls

The Massachusetts court has determined that a mother can decide to cut her children off from their father's family. She can poison the minds of two pre-teen girls into believing that their father is a deadbeat dad. She has coached the older girl to say things to him like "get out of my life".

It doesn't matter that their dad sees them at least 8 days a month for movies, dinners, just hanging out together, buys them clothes, takes them to gymnastics every week and the beach. He has made sure that they are known and loved by their dad's family. He has $350 a week automatically taken out of his pay for child support. They have received gifts from aunties and had sleepovers with their cousins and their grandmother.

Yesterday the court said their mother does not have to abide by the previous visitation order if she feels that the dad is an "inadequate father". They are not required to have any further contact with their dad or his family.

He has been fighting this battle for 7 years now. He is completely defeated and we're heartbroken.

Very, very sad.

Awful. I hope they can heal those rifts when the girls are of an age to redefine their relationships. A pox on that judge.

My heart goes out to you all. This is heart wrenching. Life is so hard.

I'm sorry. That is so sad. And a horrible oversight by the courts. No one should be deemed inadequate without lots of evidence - not just one person's angry opinion.

Kids need there dads just as much, maybe more.

That's just terrible. Was no evidence presented on the father's behalf? I would hope that plenty of people would have testified that he is involved and hands on. What a shame.

I am so sorry.

I have seen firsthand how anti-male the family courts are. Women are allowed to get away with parental alienation all the time. It's a total disgrace.
