    Now criminals are being given a break BUT Fathers can go on having their rights denied. What a system! Of course criminals are currently being treated better than Fathers anyway. Criminals are given a lawyer when they go to court. Fathers are not! IT is time that New Jerseyans wake up to what is really going on in this state! Contact the legislators and demand change.

    What about innocent Fathers who are being sent to jail for inability to pay large amounts of alimony and child support. child support is necessary but alimony is just payments to women women who could work but choose not to. Men are jailed instead of being given the opportunity to pay smaller payments that they can afford. How can they pay when in jail?? Just stupidity!!

    Let‘s hope it is not one of your family members or friends who is impacted by such an "unfortunate" event.
