What we're about

The fathers' rights movement is a movement whose members are primarily interested in issues related to family law, including child custody and child support that affect fathers and their children. Many of its members are fathers who desire to share the parenting of their children equally with their children's mother – either after divorce or as unwed fathers. The movement includes women as well as men, often the second wives of divorced fathers or other family members of men who have had some engagement with family law.

Most of the members of the fathers' rights movement had little prior interest in the law or politics. However, as they felt that their goal of equal shared parenting was being frustrated by the family courts, many took an interest in family law, including child custody and child support.

The Father's Rights Movement Meet, Greet and Ask Meetup

Calling all North Jersey Dads who are either fighting for custody or have won custody of their kids. Come share your stories or ask for advice, guidance or help. The Father's Rights Movement (NJ Chapter) is hosting a meetup so you can meet, greet and ask us and other dads about your situation. In addition, Michael Meliti, a partner of Guaglardi & Meliti will be on hand for about 30 minutes to answer any questions you may have regarding custody, child support, restraining orders, etc. The goal of this meetup is to let you know that "You Are Not Alone". Also, we ask that you please bring your partner or friend(s) that have supported you throughout your ordeal. Women and friends are an important part of TFRM and their support within the group or within our lives as we fight for our kids is invaluable so bring them along. LOCATION: The meetup will be held at LITM located in the revitalized exchange place in Jersey City by the waterfront. DATE / TIME: Sun, 2/24/18, 2pm-4pm ABOUT TFRM: TFRM has a chapter in every state and in dozens of countries around the world. As a collective movement, we are passionate about empowering fathers to stand up for their rights and to educate the public and family court system about the importance of fathers in society, as well as bring greater awareness to the imbalance and injustice that effects the rights of fathers. So if you would like to get involved with TFRM or just want to pass by and asks questions or just hang, we look forward to seeing you there... PLEASE RSVP TO ASSURE ACCURATE HEADCOUNT
