This group engages in terroristic activities towards the exes of the men in the group or the men they support. This group should not be granted the status as good and the five stars it does receive are from domestic abusers; wife and child beaters.

This organization unites loving parents to take action against systemic abusers of at risk families. Unite your efforts to defend the child's human right to access all loving family members. Expose public servants that profit by abusing at risk families. Demand shared parenting and take the profit out of family law and expose the APA doctors that seek to profit from child custody disputes created by unethical judicial members. Take positive action in your community to protect at risk families from judicial members ( lawyers, judges, court employees ) seeking profit by escalation of domestic disputes. Hitler used gender based conflicts to fragment families. History has shown that systemic abusers first break down family support, which aides in the suppression of the public. Defend your freedom build strong families, in your community no matter what form they take divorced, etc.

Children deserve both parents. F4J is not only for fathers, although they do represent this under served group. Society pays a heavy price in the war against fit and loving parents, through lost employee productivity, increased healthcare costs, future generations of children emotionally damaged through an unnecessary government intrusion. Millions of families are bankrupted each and every year, defending against a system that is clearly rigged to villify one parent against the other just to fund a broken system. F4J is the one group that has no political agenda other that ensuring the health and safety of our future generations through parental involvement. Statistically, the facts favor the F4J mission, but donations are sorely needed for this very efficient group of dedicated parents. A true "David vs. Goliath" organization, F4J can use all of the financial support it can muster...please donate.

Fathers4Justice advocates and campaigns for Fathers, Children, Parents and Families caught up in the ravages of the anti-family court system. They work hard to counter the disastrous effects of the courts. Children Need Both Parents, and Fathers4Justice believes that there is much data and research to support that position. Equal Shared Parenting would go a long way to help support the true best interest of children. Nelson Mandela said: "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats it children." And unfortunately, this country, and most countries throughout the world, fail miserably as a result of the behaviors, attitudes and decisions that come out of the anti-family courts. There needs to be imminent change and reform on multiple levels and Fathers4Justice will continue to fight until that becomes a reality. I am proud to be a member of this organization and stand alongside many other activists fighting on behalf of our children. There could be no more of a worthy cause and Fathers4Justice is at the center of this battle to save our children.

What IS Fathers-4-Justice®?

Fathers-4-Justice® US (F4J®) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, volunteer army of fathers, mothers, grandparents, and others dedicated to fighting for truth, justice and equality in family law.

The F4J® army is building and NOW is the time for YOU to join our ranks in the name of protecting America's children from the abuse they suffer in the family court system!

What will you tell your child when they ask What did YOU do in the war on corrupt family courts?

F4J® knows that every parent is a superhero in the eyes of a child. F4J® also believes that it takes “superhero powers” to fight the corruption in America's family courts. To that end, superhero parents in costumes as Superman, Superwoman, Spiderman, Batman and other childhood superhero favorites are frequently found leading the F4J® US troops at rallies, demonstrations, and other events to bring much needed humor and media attention to its cause. F4J® merchandise , such as F4J® branded tee shirts are designed to make a positive impression in courtrooms and elsewhere.

Fathers-4-Justice® understands that fathers, mothers and grandparents across America have suffered because of an unjust family court system. However, statistics clearly indicate that fathers and their children have taken the greatest abuse from this unjust and intolerable system, which is why we created FATHERS-4-Justice® US.

Anyone who supports equality in family courts is welcome in our organization. We do not favor sole custody by either parent when both parents are fit. We believe that children of divorce or separation deserve the right to be raised equally by BOTH parents.

Asking for justice hasn't worked for more than 30 years, It is time to DEMAND it!

JOIN NOW! We need your support. Fathers-4-Justice® US is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) organization, so all memberships and financial contributions are 100% tax-deductible.

What We Do
Fathers-4-Justice® (F4J®) is a civil rights campaign organization that employs a multi-pronged approach for spreading its message across the United States Using direct action done with humor, our message is that the bias and discrimination currently found in our family courts and family law will no longer be tolerated.

How We Do It
Our primary method of campaigning is accomplished through the use of high profile and unique demonstrations done with humor to focus media attention on a specific issue, or a public official, that is not supportive of truth, justice and equality in family law and the family courts. We are the “feet on the streets”, shouting our demands for equality at the very courthouse and legislature doors where justice is being denied.

Other campaign methods also include meeting with officials to express our strong concerns, letter writing, television and radio ads, billboards and participation in parades and other high profile public events.

We believe in the methods and actions taken by history's great civil rights leaders, such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi, to ensure that a collective voice is heard.

What We Are Not
We are NOT a legal service and cannot offer legal advice
We do NOT provide financial assistance
We do NOT organize public demonstrations in support of individual cases
The national organization cannot provide individual help. You are encouraged to join F4J® by becoming a member.You will then be directed to a state coordinator who will let you know of other members in your area. From there we can all share our personal experiences and provide moral support that will lead to the ultimate success of our mission.

Fathers4Justice® is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes and the prevention of cruelty to children. Fathers4Justice® does not engage in substantial lobbying activities and does not participate or intervene in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for office.

Fathers4Justice® does not advocate, authorize, encourage, support, promote, sponsor, perform, participate in or plan any violation of constitutionally valid laws or any activity that is contrary to public policy or in conflict with express statutory restrictions or limitations.

Individuals who engage in illegal activity or activity that is against public policy or in conflict with express statutory restrictions or limitations are not acting on behalf of Fathers4Justice® and do so at their own risk.

With the help of Fathers for Justice, I have met many new people, learned I am not alone. Most importantly I have met up another member who has been extraordinarily helpful in my CPS case. To just say extraordinarily helpful is a complete understatement of the help he has given and what he has taught me. We still are working on my case, we talk daily thinking and discussing what to do next. He will be a friend for life. There were things he needed and I was able to help him also. It has been great for both of us.
Get out an meet people. learn from them. Help them out. We can win this, if we all help each other and stand united. The courts are corrupt and will not change unless we get together and expose the corruption. Lets get some laws changed, remove some judges, remove lawyers, social workers, make the system follow the law.
I have been interviewed for even news with sound bites and talked to politicians.
Change is on the way.

Fathers For justice is doing great work on the #1 social problem of our time which is fatherlessness. Fathers have been driven out of home by federal and state financial incentives due to kickbacks of billions annually to all 50 states. It has been shown by hundreds of research study that over 20 social pathologies increase between 660% and 2,400% when a father is not in the life of the child, The divorce industry is not just destroying marriages but 40% of all children. Problems that skyrocket include: teen suicide, teen pregnancy, crime, drug usage, gang violence, rape, run-aways and far more. See www.FathersUnite.org adn hit "Statistics" on the left side for all the data and sources.
Please donate to they can make progress as this is really the root cause of 20 other major problems in society today.

This was the only group that offered any kind of help through the hardest time in my life. Many times I wanted to just give up, and they kept with me and gave me the strength to continue. Ultimately the family courts sided with me, and I have my boys. I feel I could not have done this without Donald Tenn, and Fathers 4 justice.

I have had the privilege of demonstrating with Fathers4Justice on two occasions and worked with them on other projects. They are instrumental in making needed changes across the country with a central focus on child's rights to their bio families. With a branded appearance through effectively designed t-shirts, hats and flags, they present well while educating the public on critical topics. They are an asset to family cohesiveness in law and politics bridging the gap between ostracized family members and their children.

Fathers 4 Justice has a committed national group of volunteers who eagerly work towards fair, equitable and just laws. With several components of activism ranging from demonstrations, lobbying and court watch, their organization presents as a unified front of engaged men and women who tirelessly assist families in crisis. The "Super Hero" enactment invites a family friendly air along with professionally done logos championing their cause. I endorse this group.

I have been following these guys for months now & i am very happy I found them. I am a father in Ohio and am going through hell with custody matters. It's very painful. Very trying. Pretty much gut wrenching. Fathers4Justice has been a beacon of hope for me. Just knowing that turrets are others who are fighting and making a difference gives me great hope. BTW I meant there not turrets...lol but I can't change it for some reason...hence the explanation. I definitely am going to get more and more involved with fathers4justice.

Under title Vl -D funding the judges have a financial interest to impose a non-custodial parent. This financial incentive to seperate children from a parent should be removed from the courts.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judges are excpting bribes. California judges are employee's of the State not the County. The County is currently giving them $57,688.00 per yr per judge in addition to the pay and benefits they receive from the State. After being exposed for the bribes (Sturgeon v Los Angeles County) the judges paid a lobbyist to pass SBX211 granting the retro active imunity from prosecution. SBX211 does not address the loss of due proccess.

Everyone knows that Family Law in this country does not treat all parents fairly. In fact, it is very rare that mothers and fathers are treated equally. That being said, Fathers4Justice helps countless families that have fallen victim to the family law system by working diligently to effect changes in family law so that non custodial parents can maintain a healthy relationship with his or her children. This group has helped me understand the system that has essentially destroyed my positive relationship with my children. This group offers a vast resource of knowledge to all its members. This is a great non profit group that is working for a very noble cause.

This is a great organization, dedicated to helping people, and bringing awareness to family courts. Family courts are not always fair in their ruling as to who “gets” the children. Too many horrible stories out there involving the injustices to once united families. F4J is there to help, to bring awareness and to continually fight for children's rights, parent's rights and the right to fair and just decisions in family courts. A worthy non-profit organization that continually strives to make a difference is so many lives!

It is a fact that Equal Shared Parenting is in the true best interest of the child. Children need, want and deserve both parents, fit and loving parents. Unfortunately, the courts and vindictive, mean spirited opposite parents manipulate the situation, driving a loving parent (usually the father) from their child's life, too often, for ever. Fathers are most often the victim, disproportionately (84.4% of mothers get custody), all at a cost to the innocent child involved. The playing field is littered with the children harmed by wrong-headed and mean-spirited court decisions. Children absent a father suffer undue damage, often forever:
• 43% of U.S. children live without their fathers. [U.S. Department of Census]
• 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. [U. S. D.H.H.S. Bureau of the Census]
• 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.
• 84.4% of custodial parents are mothers. [U.S. Dept. of the Census]
• 71% of pregnant teenagers lack a father. [U.S. Dept. Health and Human Services]
• 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes. [Center for Disease Control]
• 80% of rapist motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes. [Criminal Justice and Behavior, Vol. 14 p. 403-26]
• 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes. [National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools]
• 61% of child abuse is committed by biological mothers. [DHHS Report on Child Abuse]
• 70% of juveniles in state operated institutions come from fatherless homes [U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report]
• 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home. [Fulton County Georgia Jail Populations and Texas Dept. of Corrections]

Connect the dots...children need their Daddy's in their lives!
Let's stop the war on Fathers! Now!!!

Kudos to Fathers 4 Justice for continuously campaigning for Father's rights, and for Fathers and children to be together. Now that's what true justice looks like!

I have been blessed to learn of this organization and have myself helped both mother's and father's with court appearances. Fathers-4-Justice has done and continues to do wonderful work on behalf of our children.

Divorce is a problem that hits every ethnicity and income level and is most devastating to children who have their two most favorite people in the world at odds with each other. I don't like that the court system is profiting by this sad event and in many cases is adversarial and detrimental to the well-being of the ones they claim to care about the most - the children.

F-4-J is a group that many have come to depend upon for knowledge, support and guidance on how to deal with these very sensitive matters. If I had not gone thru this experience myself I would not believe what goes on in the court system and how detrimental it is to the family. Personally I value my connection to this group for many reasons and hope to see it continue to grow.
