in the UK..quite frankly the law is is just about as unhelpful as it gets with regards to fathers in a split up. generally speaking--the kids stay with the mum. which means the kids stay with mum--in the house. Till the kids finish full time education. so--dad moves out., thereby losing his home...but still ends up paying for it. and it doesnt matter a toss whose " fault" it all was.
the watchtower --of course--are well aware of this--and thats why so many men are PIMO--they know they have everything to lose. happened to me--happened to my son.
add to the mix..if the mum is unable / unwilling to work...and gets social security ( AKA income support )..then dad is introduced to a whole new depth of pain....the child support agency.
the CSA basically is a tax on the dads earnings--to offset the social security paid to the mum. but it varies according to his earnings--even though the money paid to the mum stays the same. i know men who are hit for far more than their ex--and the kids get.
if theres a morale to the whole mess--its guys--dont get married--if you must--dont have kids CERTAINLY NOT if you are involved with a dub--that just makes a bad mess ten times worse.
