I love that article, especially the last line!!
“While the Commonwealth places great importance on biological ties, it does not do so to the extent that the biological parent’s right to “custody will trump the best interests of the child,” the high court ruled.
If the court decides in the best interest of the child, why are most children not with the parent making the support? making over 50% of their income? I say it like that because the law are only interested in money, except in this case.
I dont get the law/government they say one thing and mean another.

Now when are the laws going to change and not be so cold-hearted to those of us who pay to the best of our ability. The only states, ‘take the license’,’take property’,’jail’. No matter if you are paying or not.
When are the laws going to wake up and realize non custodial parents are people too??

Several law enforcement officers are currently our members, and we would like to kindly ask them to state their department’s POLICY regarding CIVIL STAND-BY when there are child custody disputes.
Compliance with child custody orders is as important as compliance with support orders, and so is knowledge regarding the means of enforcement.
What are your mandated PROCEDURES when either the sheriff’s office or the city police accompanies a parent on a civil stand-by to keep the peace while a parent recovers a child who has been unlawfully detained?
What sort of reports are generated?
And how are such reports cross-referenced with the records at Family Court? (If not, it should be in this age of Oracle databases…)
Under what circumstances does the District Attorney get involved in the event of child custody violations? (Of course, they routinely file to collect late support payments.)
If you have any practical tips to share with fellow DADS, please kindly do so.
Thanks for keeping the peace.
