No loving father should be childless...

Fathers:  Putting Family Back in Parenting

Note: There are many lawyers, judges, and social workers that work hard to protect the children and families of Kentucky. FATHERS supports them and works with them 100%. There are however some lawyers, judges, and social workers that are biased, lazy, and incompetent. Because FATHERS works hard to expose the harm they do to our children, they slander FATHERS in an attempt to protect themselves. Listen to their words carefully, and believe their actions.

Mike East, President

"No loving father should go childless and no child should go fatherless because of outdated, meaningless, biased, and unenforceable laws, practices, and social habits".

Fathers is a non-profit group of men and women dedicated to the belief that:

We believe that the American people will not stand for the injustices faced by divorced and single fathers once this issue is made fully public. Although the group was started for fathers, we do have mothers that have been treated just as unfairly and cruelly. FATHERS stands for the rights of any child and loving relative that have been separated from each other unjustly. We meet at the Paducah Public Library the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM. Join us. Let's fix this.
