Today was a good day for Justice. I want to thank you, Dennis, because all this hard work finally paid off.
I want to direct this letter to all you fathers out there. You can do it too because I did.
Here's what happened.
A few years ago my ex took me to Child Support to get my child support raised because she conveniently had a baby with her new hubby. Well naturally she thought she could get more money out of me. CSED (child support enforcement division) raised my child support without my input or ok two and half times what it was. I fought with them and they confiscated all my money in my checking account at one point. Then threatened to take my license away after there wasn't enough payment to suit the ex (because I just could not afford the mounting fees and high amount of child support they put on me).
Then, they threatened to arrest me. Well my business had fallen off to nothing. Not much coming in and whole lot of debt piling up. I had enough of this and worked with Dennis to get something done. (I couldn't afford a fancy expensive lawyer) Dennis showed me the steps and let me tell you I have never been so scared to go up against the machine of the state. It was different from what I wanted to do which was to just lay down and let her have whatever. It was really hard to keep pushing on because the process can take some time but well worth it.
I had a hearing with a Judge who really isn't a judge but what they call a Standing Master. This guy didn't even give me the chance to hear my case and just dismissed the case like I was going to run down the street with my tail between my legs. I was really ticked off by this decision, or rather indecision. I can remember the day vividly.
I about got into a fist fight with a motorist, I hollered at my landlord, and got into a fight with my wife, which I don’t don't do on a regular basis and I finally figured out that isn't the answer. I could of laid down and given up at this point.
But rather, I needed to press on with this court case. I went to the Standing Master's office and immediately demanded his written order so I could file an appeal. Well, he was very perturbed by this. I knew he was stalling and delaying the written order so that I couldn't appeal. I didn't care and wasn't going to back down on this. Once I got the order, I filed the appeal paper work that Dennis provided.
Let me tell you, the court house clerk ladies were great and will help you if your sweet and nice to them. If you get something wrong just listened to them and to Dennis and correct whatever you have too if there is something wrong with the paper work.
Well I got my appeal heard in front of the District judge which took my side and overturned the Standing Master. The case is now back in the lower court which means the Ex is going to have to negotiate with me or take her chances in court. I wonder how her and her lawyer felt after it was all over. I wish I was a little mouse in the corner of their conversation after the higher court reversed this dimwit Standing Master. All I can say is be proactive and continue the fight. Because I am.
Thanks again Dennis.

"Just wanted to send you a note of THANK YOU!!!! The information and suggestions you made to us are the main reasons my other half has rights to his son now. It has relieved a great deal of stress in our home and his boy is much happier! We have a plan now that is being followed even though we still have minor issues arise; but, that's nothing compared to what we were facing before. He gets the holiday and birthday time he never had before and Joe now has a say in things. His son is happy to get more time with him and feels his father has as much control as his mother now in his schedule. We are forever grateful for the insight you have given us and the knowledge --- which is power to go the distance."
Janeece Smith, Washington State

The Benefits of Going Pro Se When Fighting for Father's Rights in Court
The term "Pro Se" can bring preconceived notions of failing miserably in the court system against the other party's attorney. The idea of going it alone in the courtroom throws some people into fits of anxiety and nervousness that may keep them from pursuing any legal issues in court--out of fear.
When taking your ex-wife to court for a divorce and/or for child support obligations, it's important to understand that many fathers go through the court system alone. There is no rule that says you must have representation when litigating civil cases--or criminal cases, for that matter.
There are many benefits to taking your ex-wife to court Pro Se. In addition to saving money on outrageous attorney fees, you also can utilize the help of a legal coach at a fraction of the cost if you want a little assistance in submitting the proper paperwork, meeting deadlines and understanding any confusing legal terms that may be very important to your case.
One of the main benefits of self representation is that you are your own "expert" in your case. You are the person that knows all the facts, all the information pertaining to the case. When hiring an attorney, hundreds of dollars of legal fees go to the attorney while you are explaining your case and helping get the lawyer up-to-date on what's been going on. By knowing what's going on with your divorce, you are the most informed person in the courtroom, and shouldn't have to shell out additional money just to share your story to a lawyer that will never quite know the ins and outs of the marriage.
If you still feel uncomfortable going entirely Pro Se, you can always hire an attorney to be your co-counsel. This means that you are still representing yourself, but your attorney is there to assist you and offer legal guidance throughout the court process.?
