Paul Schwennesen, separated father’s lament

Paul Schwennesen wrote a separated father’s lament that got published by the Huffington Post.  The article at the shared link is good.  It is anecdotal evidence of the consequences of a wife and mother walking out of her marriage. The father became devastated, was without a doubt fleeced by his ex who used the system to the hilt against him, by having him removed from his own home, and by having him arrested when he dared to say his good byes to his kids at the bus stop, when they went off to school.

h/t Nancy Schneider Belot: [Canada] Shared Custody – Benefits Entitlement “Prior to July 2011, only one person could receive the Canada Child Tax Benefit and the Universal Child Care Benefit each month, and the child component of the GST/HST credit each quarter, with respect to a qualified dependent. This created a problem for parents who share custody of a child. As of July 2011, legislation was amended to recognize both shared custody parents as “eligible individuals” in the same month.” More at: http://www.complexfamilylaw.com/Articles-by-Gene-C-Colman/Family-Law-Taxes-Article.shtml Anyone in Canada having shared child-custody and not previously being able to receive the Canada Child Tax Benefit and the Universal Child Care Benefit should make sure … Continue reading

Fathers rights organizations in Winnipeg, Manitoba
