My son acted sick so he wouldn't have to go to the meeting
so glad he's got out of that (for now),, thankfully he has you as his way out and is luckier than most jw kids. Though, tough dilemma for him due to his father yet.
One case, in Arizona, I went to the court with the mom (she, never a JW, contacted me through ex-JW site), for moral support. She married an JW (raised in but not active), had children. Divorced. He went back to JW world. There was shared custody, but she had already full custody on medical (blood issue).
1. She requested that she didn't want the kids to go to JW meetings at all. Of course, the judge did not grant that as the father had right to takes kids to his church. (no surprise there).
2.. She requested to judge for the son not to have a Bible study with any other JW, only the father. (She was counting on the father falling through with that because he had a history of not following through with things), The judge granted that to her.
3. She requested that her children not be baptized into JW. Judge asked the father on JW policy of baptism and the father stated when the child was "mature" enough (by answering certain questions required, etc). (Then, this surprised me.) Judge decreed that if any of the children were wishing to be baptized that the father would have to inform the Court at least 3 months in advance. Then, the Court/he will question the child and will decide if the child is, in fact, "mature" enough.
I didn't have contact with h er again for at least a year. She stated that things were great, The father didn't follow through with Bible study. That they kids weren't really going to JW meetings any more. The oldest, son, was very active in school activities, absolutely planning college and the younger ones were doing great too.
I trust that you will succeed with your son's future. You have a positive life to offer him, a life of freedom of mind and heart, You can show him the joy of real life (though challenging).
