I haven't posted my challenges on here as a single dad but I have them. As do many other fathers. A group I follow is trying to develop an app to assist fathers in navigating the legal system and finding legal support. I hope they succeed as an app of this nature would have been a game changer for me years ago.

I bought up a grand daughter for 18 years, as a single grandfather.
It was not easy for me, but one source of help was my motorcycle racing competitors.
They were great with ideas, assistance, encouragement and  support for Charlotte and myself.
I hope the plan for this group takes off.

Hi Rex,
I am about to become a single father, so this hits home. I think that is a great idea. There is a lot of information to be had freely... but it is hard to find. One place I have found is a website put on by Cordell and Cordell called Dad's Divorce. https://dadsdivorce.com/.

For any single fathers, DO NOT GIVE UP. You are have just as much a parent as the mother, although the court systems to not always seem to act like that. Kids need their fathers just as much as mothers. In some ways perhaps even more. See the statistics from this site on single mother homes vs single father homes. https://thefatherlessgeneration.wordpress.com/statistics/

I am not saying the mother's do not love their kids. Please do not assume that and get mad. Mothers love them just as much as fathers, but statistically, the children are at a huge disadvantage in a single mother home compared to a single father home, which is still a huge disadvantage to a home with a father and a mother.
