The Fathers' Rights Movement How do alienated children feel once they have grown up and learned the truth? This. this is exactly how most people feel when they learn the truth about being alienated from half of their DNA.
This is our Oklahoma editor, who was a child of alienation. This video speaks volumes to me as a fellow alienated child.
My name is David Nery, and I am reaching out to anyone who has had experience and success in dealing with parental alienation and custody in the family court system.
In a nutshell, my divorce began in 2013 and was finalized in 2014. My ex and I were awarded equal custody and equal parental rights for our 4 children which continued until Spring of 2017. At that time, my parental rights were summarily stripped, and by ex was subsequently awarded sole parental rights. Since then, I have barely been able (allowed) to even see my kids – only about 5 times in almost 2 years now. I live about 30 miles away, and I have 18 days off per month.
Our children’s Mother made claims that I had been emotionally and physically abusive to her and the children, that I had neglected the children, that I had substance abuse problems, and that I suffer from PTSD and I’m unstable – we had been together for 22 years and married for 17. And, despite those claims, the kids and I had equal rights for over 3.5 years.
It wasn’t until my ex-spouse married a much older male (30 yr difference), who had friends on the local police force, that things took an abrupt change. I have a pending civil action against both of them regarding abuse of process impacting the custody of our children.
I am a decorated military veteran and active reservist that began my career in 1988. I have no adverse military or civilian record, mental health history, criminal, or domestic abuse record. In fact, my position in both my military and civilian careers require an absolutely clean record, which my ex has jeopardized with her claims several times. And, prior to my ex deciding on divorce, she had never made any claims against me.
I have no desire to take the kids away from her, or to prove that she is a bad person, as I know that the children also love her. However, I have no desire to, or will accept being a visitor or a part time parent to my children. I believe wholeheartedly in equal parental rights – and that the kids have equal rights as well.
Also, that the children have the right to the other half of their family that my ex is trying to erase: All of my family including their 3 Step Brothers and Sister and their Step Mother, my wife. Our families all miss each other terribly. Nobody can understand how this happened, but everyone is being hurt terribly. There are 7, yes Seven, kids being hurt here. Any help in ending this madness is greatly appreciated.
The upcoming and long-awaited custody hearing is at the end of March. It is the first hearing I’ve been able to get regarding custody since the kids were essentially stripped away. The Judge in the case is Barbara Raimondi, Lincoln County, Wiscasset Maine. The current, and 3rd, Guardian Ad Litem is Nathaniel Seth Levy, Brunswick/Portland Maine.
