Sounds like Lyle got the shaft, but could have gotten hit worse with Alimony than he did. I wouldn't be happy with it. As far as the visitation with the children, I strongly disagree with the courts. I can see their concern with a six month cycle, but to throw it all her way is absurd. I liked the part that Lyle will continue to do his part as joint legal custodian (in other words, pay like hell and only get to visit the kids).

This was in November of 2006 too!  After the passing of the Shared Physical Care law, and I see no findings of fact to support that a continued JPC arrangement would be harmful to the children.  I think this one would be good to go to the Iowa Supreme Court.  I wonder if Lyle has thought of that.

Poor Lyle probably ain't got the money to take it to the Supreme Court after this shafting. Poor Lyle just got turned into a wallet!

It's times like this I wish our group and others that we are partnered up with had the resources to pay legal fees to get the best attorney to take it to the Supreme Court.  I have read before that our cause will not be one by a landmark case, but in the trenches of the legislature and winning over of the public opinion.  But, a victory at the Supreme Court level financed by a group like ours would sure get some attention!

I agree. The ACLU and other groups find cases that benefit their agenda and they run them up to the Supreme Court. This is why I said that we need to find some attorneys that agree with our side and would be willing to work with us in advancing family law. I cannot believe that there aren't at least two attorneys in the entire state of Iowa willing to do this? Of course, the ACLU has a lot more money, but I believe a lot of the attorneys donate their time to the organization though.

When I homeschooled my son for five years, I was a member of the HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association).  I paid a $99/year membership fee which included newsletters on legislation concerning homeschooling, and a toll free service to call to get questions answered, and a card that I could just hand to any government agent that might come to my door asking questions.  I never needed to use it, but it was a good feeling to know that if I did need it, I could just hand it to the person, and say "There is a number on there to reach the attorney that represents me in these matters."  HSLDA is an awesome organization, and I think it would do a group like ours a lot of good to fashion some of our operations after them.  If we had $100 from every member of IowaFathers.com and CNBP.com every year, we could build a nice little defense fund and push some key cases right through the courts up to the Supreme Court level.

It's something to think about.

I agree with that. I suppose we need to find an attorney or two that will work with us and fight hard for us because they believe in our cause. I would be willing to pay a yearly fee for legal help. I know it may not be direct help, but getting a newsletter every month with legal talk and advice, maybe a phone number to call with questions?? Not too shabby of an idea.
